Do-Gooder Consulting staff has extensive training from the most trusted resources in financial aid: the Illinois Student Assistance Commission and the US Department of Education.
We can help you set up a program within your organization to help your youth (or even adults) take advantage of the many free resources to help them go to not just any college, but the right college for them.
Resources and knowledge are out there, and we want to help you put the pieces together.
Seminars include (but not limited to):
- The Financial Aid Process (What is it? How do I get it?)
- Completing the FAFSA (sample presentation for Oakdale Covenant Church => 2014-OAKDALE = FAFSA Completion version=basic )
- How to Go to College (types of colleges, tools to use, available resources, pitfalls)
We can also make Do-Gooder Consulting available for individual counseling for the FAFSA or financial aid comparisons as well.
See our Events page to see DO-Gooder Consulting in action.
Our focus is on the resources for the state of Illinois, but we may be able to help you wherever you reside. Contact us for a free initial consultation.
