Come celebrate our 5th anniversary of the Central Florida College Access Network at the relaunch meeting on September 10th from 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm at Heart of Florida United Way! RSVP below.
Come celebrate and thank our investors (to be announced!) who contributed to the CASI challenge grant this year. CFCAN was challenged by the Florida Philanthropic Network in partnership with Helios Education Foundation and the Kresge Foundation to leverage a matched grant with the mission of enhancing, strengthening, and sustaining the Central Florida College Access Network. Thank our investors and find out more details on September 10th! Additionally, members will be encouraged to take action by joining a workgroup in one of our Areas of Impact: Adult Learners, Career Connections or Scholarships & Financial Aid. At the meeting each workgroup chair will present their area of impact and what CFCAN intends to accomplish this year. Attendees will be asked to sign a membership memorandum of understanding (MOU) where they will commit to take action and join a workgroup.
