The “GIVE back. GO forward.” program will honor college students who volunteer to earn free tuition and recognize participants who help make the incentive program a success.

Youngstown area community members who volunteer 100+ hours at one or more select volunteer organizations are able to earn one tuition waiver to either Eastern Gateway Community College or Youngstown State University.

Both schools each provide 50 new tuition waivers, with each tuition waiver good for three undergraduate credit hours at either institution.

The reception will celebrate the program’s first tuition waiver earned, current volunteers, volunteer organizations and the planning committee. Eastern Gateway Community College board member Sister Patricia McNicholas will represent EGCC at the event.

The reception will be held on March 24 at 10 a.m. at the Youngstown Historical Center of Industry and Labor, 151 W. Wood Street, Youngstown, Ohio, 44503. The media are invited to attend.
