Susan Towne, Outreach Counselor (CAPS), invited CBC to attend the College Academy for Parents (CAPS) event on March 20, 2024, at Apollo Middle School. Dr. Juliana Sacoman and CBC Ambassadors Megan Hahn, October Owen, and Ika Lin shared their insights on what it is like to be in STEM at the University of Arizona. CBC led a couple of workshops; one was an icebreaker by Megan Hahn and Ika Lin.

The program targets underrepresented and underfunded school districts (particularly Sunnyside School District) and helps educate parents and children about college. The primary attendees are low-income, minority, and first-generation students, and the goal of the program is to inspire these students as early as possible to explore college as a primary option.
