This past summer, 47 area teens who attend The Boys & Girls Club of Sarasota and Desoto Counties embarked on a three-day whirlwind tour that allowed them to visit six Florida colleges, learn about campus life, program offerings, and the breadth of opportunities available to them in their future. The college tour was free for their their families, and may open new avenues of possibilities for those who participated.

Our Community Foundation is proud to provide financial support for this type of trajectory-changing learning experience. Here's a video the students and staff made that highlights the stops along the way and showcases the array of new frontiers they've encountered during the journey.
