d2D program participants spent the summer touring local colleges and universities. Volunteers from Toyota Financial Services coordinated and chaperoned the field trips. BGCD members had the opportunity to visit the University of North Texas, Texas Christian University and The University of Texas at Dallas.
During the visits, members learned the importance of maintaining a high GPA, participating in volunteering activities and signing up for more challenging classes (PAP/AP) in order to be competitive for scholarship and grant funds. They also met with admission counselors who informed them of the admissions process and fields of study at each school.
