Thank you for your continued support and commitment to Bay Area students and their families! In May 2011, the Choose College Educational Foundation partnered with you and the greater Bay Area to address the devastating statistics regarding the college going rates of Bay Area high school students. As you may recall from last year’s efforts, Choose College’s SuperSATurday program made presentations in schools, churches, organizations and at community events throughout the Bay Area and featured a motivational event called the SuperSATurday College Rally and Resource Fair at which 500 participants obtained free SAT and college information as well as heard from celebrities and entertainers on the importance of education.
The struggle continues as over 50% of Bay Area high school students in most public school districts DO NOT take the SAT test and DO NOT meet the A-G college entrance requirements.
The 2nd Annual SuperSATurday SAT/College Rally and Resource Fair that will be held on April 28, 2012 at Laney College in Oakland, CA. This motivational event, hosted by the Bay Area’s own radio/tv personality Sway Calloway, is open to the public and will feature celebrity guest speakers, youth performances, student competitions, informational workshops, and free SAT, college and educational resources.
We’d like to invite you to join us this year as a partner. As a partner, we ask that you:
· provide us with the opportunity to present to your staff, students, families and/or community members
· post and distribute SuperSATurday materials
· commit to bring a group of students to the SuperSATurday SAT/College Rally and Resource Fair
As a partner, you will receive:
· a packet of promotional materials
· materials to pre-register your students for priority admission
· your listing in the event program as a partner
· a certificate acknowledging your partnership
I have attached the student promotional flyer below for your review. We would love to speak with you in person and/or make a presentation to you and your team to learn first-hand what we do and how we may be able to support each other’s efforts. Please expect a follow up phone call and/or email from one of our outreach specialists to schedule an appointment with you. In the meantime, if there is anything that we can do for you to help promote your efforts and/or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at the information provided below the event flyer.
As the Kenyan Proverb says, “Sticks in a bundle are unbreakable.” Together, we can make a difference!
