Growing Grads College and Career Fair going virtual

virtual college fair

Individuals seeking to pursue post-secondary education are invited to attend the first City of Brighton, Office of Youth Services’ Growing Grads College and Career Virtual Fair on Monday, Nov. 30 from 5 - 8 p.m. Due to COVID-19 social distancing guidelines, this virtual college and career fair will allow students and families to prepare, ask questions and gain access to resources and experts to help with the college search process, all from the comfort of their home. 

The virtual fair is free for attendees and will cover a range of topics, from FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) presentations in both English and Spanish to presentations by post-secondary education experts from various colleges and universities. Filters through the website can help narrow searches of colleges to geographic regions, campus size, majors offered and more. All elements of the virtual fair (except for FAFSA staff on-hand to answer questions) will be accessible to participants through May 2021. 

“During this pandemic, it’s important for us to still provide tools to connect students to post-secondary success through our annual Growing Grads College & Career Readiness programs,” said Tawnya Russell, Manager of Brighton Youth Services. “This Virtual College and Career Fair is a great alternative to still provide those tools that we would normally offer at the traditionally in-person event.”


Registration is required. To sign up and for more information, visit Registration will open on Nov. 18. 

As part of the Growing Grads program, a series of FAFSA Nights will also be available to students seeking to apply for federal financial aid. At these sessions, representatives from FAFSA and partnering schools and organizations will be available to assist and answer questions. Sessions are scheduled for 6 - 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 11, Dec. 8, Dec. 9, and Jan. 12. Registration is required. To sign up, click here.

If a participant is in need of access to a computer or the internet for the virtual College and Career Fair or FAFSA Nights, Anything Library offers laptops and hot spots to check out for use - visit or contact 303-405-3230.
