FAFSA Ready Iowa Seeking Volunteers for Events
FAFSA Ready Iowa, the statewide event that offers free FAFSA completion assistance to students and families is currently seeking volunteers for the 2017-18 events. This year events will be held from October 2017 through March 2018 at more than 43 sites across Iowa.
Each location needs volunteers to help with everything from directions and welcoming, to actually assisting families with the FAFSA. Sites are also looking for bilingual volunteers to help minority families through the process, either directly filing the form or acting as a translator between the family and the financial aid expert. If you are interested in volunteering visit www.icansucceed.org/getinvolved and find the location nearest you. Click the Get Involved link and register as a volunteer, indicating your level of expertise with financial aid and the FAFSA.
In 2016-17, more than 4,000 FAFSA’s were completed through FAFSA Ready Iowa. Volunteer today and help make the 2017-18 events the best yet. For more information, or if you have questions regarding FAFSA Ready Iowa, contact FAFSA@ICANsucceed.org or call (877) 272-4692.
