I was able to find my perfect college at Next Step's College, Career & Services Fair. I feel like I would not be this comfortable starting college if I did not compete in the program.

The Next Step program was a very helpful program. It succeeded in all aspects of helping me get to the point that I want to be for college. Thanks to Next Step, I now know a lot more than I did coming into the program.
