Help make college dreams a reality by volunteering to help high school students complete their financial aid forms.

Completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form is a crucial part of determining a student's eligibility for financial aid. The Illinois CPA Society's CPAs for the Public Interest (CPAsPI), in partnership with the Ladder Up organization, seeks volunteers to help make the dream of college a reality for Chicago area high school students. You can help students and parents navigate the financial questions associated with the form at FAFSA completion workshops.
