College & Career Readiness

The Growing Grads College and Career Readiness program is a Brighton Youth Services annual two-part series aimed to equip young people with the tools they need in all things college and career.

Growing Grads: College and Career Readiness Kickoff

Brighton Youth Services provides an annual College and Career Readiness event for high school juniors and seniors in our community, and anyone interested in pursuing higher education. Students and families will be able to:

  • Chat with colleges, trade schools and apprentice programs
  • View Financial Aid Presentations in English AND Spanish 
  • Get the Green by checking out local scholarships

The Kickoff will be held at the Armory Performing Arts Center on Sept. 21, 2022 from 5:30 - 8 p.m.

Growing Grads: FAFSA Workshops

The cost of attending a 4-year college, or technical education school is usually quite expensive, and therefore many people need to take out a loan to finance their education. While the FAFSA is necessary to complete, it can often be confusing. For this reason, Brighton Youth Services hosts FAFSA workshop nights where students and their families can receive free help from trained FAFSA professionals. During these workshops FAFSA professionals are available to answer your questions and provide one on one assistance.
