The lessons provide students with an opportunity to think of themselves as future college students and to debunk the myth that they cannot afford college.  The guide was written in collaboration with UC Berkeley’s Center for Educational Partnerships.  It is nationally recognized and endorsed by the Pell Institute and the Institute for Higher Education Policy (IHEP). It is geared toward those who work with high school students and can be used in a variety of settings including classrooms, after-school programs, Saturday programs, and community based programs.
