Fort Worth, TX – Uprooted Academy has announced the We Belong Virtual College Fair, an innovative and inclusive event that aims to empower high school students, parents, and educators in their pursuit of higher education. This free and accessible virtual fair will be held on October 14, 2023. You can register for the event here.
The event provides an innovative platform to bring together students, parents, and educators in a unified space. With its user-friendly design and intuitive layout, attendees can explore a wealth of resources, engage in meaningful conversations, and gain the confidence and competitiveness required for successful college applications. The college fair serves as a one-stop shop for discovery tools, college application support, and digestible information, offering attendees the flexibility to engage at their own pace.
“Uprooted Academy is revolutionizing how students of color navigate the college application process. As the recent overturn of affirmative action showcases the urgent need for our solution. We move to open-source our platform and democratize the college application process for all, and this is the first step of many. Support Uprooted Academy’s groundbreaking mission by contributing to our 501c3. We are not just changing lives – we are rewriting futures,” says Tiffany Green, CEO & Founder of Uprooted Academy.
As part of its commitment to fostering academic excellence, Uprooted Academy is excited to announce $10,000 in scholarship giveaways available to all career fair attendees. This initiative aims to support students on their educational journey and provide them with the means to overcome financial barriers.
The event is powered by vFairs. The attendees can experience an engaging event environment that includes video presentations, chat features, and innovative gamification elements. The platform also extends the fair’s impact by offering attendees access to resources for 3 months following the event, catering to the needs of the community.
