The primary mission of the Office of Student Outreach Services is to attract, motivate, and prepare underrepresented middle and high school students from the local area to pursue and complete a college education. We offer a variety of opportunities and programs for students (grades 6th thru 12th) and their families designed to assist in the navigation of the college admissions, financial assistance and career preparedness processes. Students and parents find themselves engaged in monthly enrichment activities, college campus visits, brain bowl competitions, academic skills workshops, leadership development forums, community service projects and career exploration modules. We encourage parents to participate and engage in all aspects of our programming because they are an integral part of our planning and provide a key ingredient to developing the support structure necessary for students to be successful. We are committed to partnering with the UCF community and other external agencies and organizations vital to providing quality programming for all of our participants.
