BEAM Conference 2020

This summer, we held a free, 5-day virtual conference to help high school seniors achieve their college aspirations and beyond. We strive for our BEAMers to enter the college application process with more confidence and all questions answered. 

 

From prizes, to essay workshops, to college panels, our conference brought students a step closer to fulfilling their educational dreams!
