Navient Community Fund Partners with Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware for Drive-Thru College Fairs

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware recently partnered with several organizations, including the Navient Community Fund, to bring drive-thru college fairs to Delaware. The Navient Community Fund is part of the ACA International member company’s philanthropic arm and volunteer programs.

The free drive-thru events held in May provided families and their students with information they need to successfully prepare and pay for college.

“We’re delighted to partner with the Navient Community Fund, Parents & Guardians College Planning Conference, Your Passport to Travel LLC and Holmes Smith Consulting Services to host Delaware’s first Drive-Thru College Fairs,” President and CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware John Wellons said in a news release from Navient. “The fairs will not only arm families with information to successfully prepare for college but also safely fuel community engagement during the pandemic.”

Beginning May 1, families and their students joined the Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware each Saturday for the college fairs at several locations.

With COVID-19 safety measures in place, teens and families were able to access to regional colleges and universities in the Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey and Pennsylvania areas.

“The Boys & Girl Clubs of Delaware offers robust programs such as the College Awareness and Planning (C.A.P.) program to students and families looking to take the first steps on their higher education journey,” said Pat Smith, director of the C.A.P program and owner of Holmes Smith Consulting Services. “The Drive-Thru College Fairs are additional opportunities to engage students and families with the college process and learn how to pay for college.”

College scholarships were awarded during the event, and high school students were given the opportunity to choose a prom dress.

The fairs were proudly sponsored by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware, the Navient Community Fund, the Parents & Guardians College Planning Conference, Your Passport to Travel LLC and Holmes Smith Consulting Services.
