The summer can be a time of anticipation and stress as many young people of color prepare to go to college. For some, it marks a major transition as they leave home and become college students for the first time. For others, this fall is a return to campus after a year of academic, economic and social disruption due to the pandemic and the racial reckoning happening across the country. Join us for this Community Conversations event to learn about how families can support students of color as they transition to higher education, and to discover strategies, resources and tools students of color can use to promote healing, well-being and mental health so they can survive and thrive in the college environment. Open to students of color in, or headed to, college, and all who support them, including family members, educators, and mental health professionals.
