If you choose to organize a field trip or group of students, here are the 4 easy steps to get your group registered ASAP from UNCF’s Sharon Smith:

  1. Please commit to being there with your students and parents and promoting your field trip to your high school students and their parents.
  2. Organize a field trip of a bus load or 2 of high school students and parents – we really want our parents to attend as well (see attached for schedule highlights)  We are recommending 1 chaperone per 10-15 students, perhaps our parents can volunteer to chaperone as well.
  3. Gather the names of the students and parents who have signed up with you attend and then…
  4. Register Your Group -Click image on this page or this link:  http://2015twincitiesemtregistration.eventbrite.com  When you get to the page, click the Group ticket.  Each Student and Parent  in your group needs to have his/her own registration with their name, address, phone number, email address, and grade.

Tip#1: You can register each attendee all at once with Your School Address, Your Email, and Phone number for each student you register so that you will get all of the information via email, but you must enter each attendee’s name, school affiliation and grade.

Tip#2: If you know how many slots you’d like for us to reserve for your students and parents, please let us know ASAP by emailing susan.miller@uncf.org your organizer’s name, # of students, and # of parents and chaperones, and we will hold those slots for you until you can get all of your registrations in the system.

Deadline to have all of your registrations in the system is Friday October 2nd at 2:00pm

If you have questions on how to register your group, or anything else please email me or  susan.miller@uncf.org or call Susan at 612-338-5742

Thank you for jumping on top of this, our students and parents will appreciate you for sharing the opportunity to attend this amazing day of info to help our students get the edge to get to college!
