Harambee Mentorship, along with the LMU Family of Schools, will be hosting its second annual college fair at Westchester High School next week.
Harambee is an LMU mentorship program that focuses on informing Westchester High students about the college process and how to approach it. Harambee's main focuses are spreading social awareness about preparation for college and establishing relationships between college and high school students to encourage the development of leadership.
"When it comes to the college fair, we try to get representatives from each [LMU] school to talk about the different areas of study," said Simone Scott, a junior screenwriting major and secretary of Harambee.
For this year's fair, Harambee is focusing on informing Westchester High students of available resources and opportunities, such as summer programs and workshops. The organization is also focused on informing students of different career paths in tandem with different fields of study, as well as exposing students to potential majors of interest.
Harambee is currently looking for volunteers for the college fair at Westchester High on April 25, anytime between 8:00 a.m and 12:24 p.m., which is periods one through four at the high school. To reach out, check Harambee's LMU orgsync.
