Remember how scary it was getting ready to go away to college? Well, for kids who foster out of the system at age 18, it’s a whole lot scarier. That’s because they may have been smart enough to get a scholarship, but they have nobody helping them with the preparations for dorm life. Nobody that is, until you step in by participating in this event…
As guests arrive, they receive their school colors to help them find their fellow classmates. Once they’re assembled, the emcee educates them on how this event will work. Each class has a "report card" highlighting the different classes - game stations around the room - they can visit at their leisure during this event. Classmates must “go to class” and get a grade based on how well they completed the game. All of the games are built around items the students will need for their dorm. For instance:
When they've finished the games, their report cards are turned in at the school store where they can shop for items such as party streamers, ribbon, markers, construction paper, tissue paper and more to help them with their next assignment – creating a school logo that shows off their spirit on their class bulletin board. And the best part is the bulletin boards are also donated to students after the event!
Classes must complete this last assignment by a set time, as it will be judged, either by a group of VIPs, or their fellow classmates. The class getting the highest marks for this final assignment steps forward to get recognized for their achievement, not with a diploma, but with an award medal. But the real winners are the students who will be blown away when they receive all the items used during the event for their freshman year of college. Your group will leave feeling like they graduated at the top of their class for what they did to help someone in need get ready for school. College Prep – it’s the smart pick when it comes to doing a charitable event!
