Each year, College Access Advocacy Day is open to anyone who has a passion for college access and postsecondary attainment. In the past, participants have included school counselors, Local College Access Network coordinators and team members, higher education professionals, community-based organization leaders and staff, philanthropic leaders, and more.

All are welcome to attend, and there is no cost to participate. No previous advocacy knowledge or skill set is required.

Please note: Due to the political nature of this event, AmeriCorps members are asked to refrain from participating. If members have questions, they should speak to their supervisor or program director.
