First Generation Student Network
The GPLXC First Generation Student Network is an initiative activity working to build community and support with Southwest side students who are the first in their families to pursue higher education. Working to create intentional space and support systems to aid in the success of Gage Park students while combating the false narratives about who youth from our communities are, and what they are capable of. The network allows students to learn from one another's experiences and creates opportunities to engage with guest speakers and community mentors to help guide members in their academic and personal journeys. Navigating higher education as a first gen student of color can be an isolating experience, together we can build networks for success.
