One of the greatest barriers to earning a college degree is the cost. Approximately 70% of college graduates have student loans averaging $37,172 (U.S. News and World Report, Kantrowitz 2017). The barrier of cost is compounded in low income communities, which typically have lower access to capital. JP Paulus, President of Do-Gooder Consulting, and I will discuss strategies to address financial barriers to college.
JP has 16 years of experience serving and resourcing families and youth workers. He served through the Illinois Student Assistance Commission, Uptown Baptist Church and Oakdale Covenant Church. JP has presented the Illinois College Access Network, Tutor/Mentor Conference and Christian Community Development Association conferences.
