Each year, College Visions welcomes a new group of 12th graders who have a vision of walking across that stage with a college degree in hand. Luis M. is one member of CV’s diverse class of 2017. . Luis was born in Charallave, a small city in Venezuela, and is currently a senior at Cranston West. Luis likes to play the piano and loves all things electronic; he even built his own machine. He is ready to take on the new challenges of the college application process.
It’s been fantastic so far. There have been so many activities that have been engaging and CV has made the college process less overwhelming. Through that summer workshop that I did for the week, I was able to learn so much during that time. From just the financial aid to the resume building workshops; that was so helpful to me. That’s what I love about CV, they make it engaging.
Thanks to your support, Luis is on the path to a college degree. Young people like Luis who join College Visions are entering and graduating from college at extraordinary rates. 97% of College Visions enroll in college and 65% graduate within 6 years!

“I believe that Interview Prep Day was one of the most helpful activities I did at College Visions. The interviewer helped me improve on many skills for my college interviews.” Yeng, Brandeis University
Will you help our new class of College Visions 12th graders prepare for college interviews? We’re looking for volunteers to serve as mock interviewers at CV’s Interview Prep Day. We’ll provide training at the beginning of the day (and snacks) and then you’ll interview CV students and give constructive feedback to help them improve their interview skills. You will provide essential support for first-gen students on the path to college.
The event will take place:
Saturday, October 8, 2016
11:00am* – 1:00pm
College Visions, 131 Washington Street, Suite 205, Providence, RI 02903
* Please plan accordingly to find parking
