UNITE-LA’s Research & Evaluation team worked with program staff to assess the effectiveness of our virtual Fall 2020 L.A. Cash for College workshop series. We administered online surveys at each of the 17 sessions, focusing on value of the individual workshops and their impact on knowledge and preparedness. Below are some very promising results!
- 97% of respondents described the session as well-organized, helpful and informative.
- 100% would recommend the workshops to others.
As a result of the Financial Aid workshops, almost all participants became more knowledgeable about:
- scholarship application requirements (95%)
