"America is in a pandemic of massive proportions, especially our students," says Marilyn Gilbert-Mitchell, Founder of MGM College Services, LLC.

The Conference will bridge the gaps between students and access to information. Experts from various professions will equip students with tips and strategies in four areas: Best College Practices, Financial Literacy and Wellness, Legal and Interactional Awareness, and Health and Relationship Wellness.  Representatives from the University of Illinois at Chicago; Central Michigan University; Malcolm X. College; Roosevelt University; Bell Tax Accountants and Advisors; KimCo International; Steps, Inc. Consulting; U. S. Bank; Center for Abused Women and Children; Between Friends; Camille Hicks Law; Metropolitan Peace Academy; National Democratic Party; and medical and mental health professionals will all lend their expertise.

"For Black and brown students in lower socioeconomic areas or with recent household income changes, their challenges are multiplied, their stress is magnified," says Gilbert-Mitchell. "Thousands of students are unsure of options and next steps. This conference will equip families to make decisions that are best for them.  Even for students opting to postpone or cancel college plans, sessions are embedded with important information for a successful start to adulthood."
