Teilor Garner with Fiver Children's Foundation


Teilor worked with Fiver Children’s Foundation on their College Access and Transition Program, which aims to prepare participants for life after they graduate high school by assisting them with their application process and helping them develop life skills. Teilor worked on two different programs, Senior Institute and Graduate Institute. Senior Institue focuses on helping rising seniors begin thinking about what colelges they may want to attend and to help them complete their college applications. Graduate Institute provides recently graduated high school students with life skills that can be utilized while at university or while working.
