Who: This event will be open to all ages and backgrounds.

When: January 7, 2017 9:00-7:00 pm
Where: Fair Park (Centennial Building)
How: The Pipeline of Promise Halftime Back to School Festival will include but is not limited to:
Backpack Giveaway – Back Packs will be provided by UTA University Crossroads and other colleges and universities as well as sponsors.
Workshops- Parents and students will have the opportunity to attend a variety of workshops focused on life skills and personal development with the goal of preparing participants for college and career opportunities.
Higher Learning Prep Seminar- In the increasingly competitive global job market, the demand for students with degrees, technical skills or trades is projected to increase. It is imperative that students in grades 9-12 are familiar with the options available for associates, bachelors, and certificate programs. There will also be representatives from UTA University Crossroads and other institutions available to answer questions, complete paperwork and help students understand the road to college. What better way to honor Dr. King and keep the dream alive by giving underserved and underrepresented students the opportunity to apply for admission, scholarships, financial aid, and receive their results on the spot just days before the national holiday.
Family Friendly Entertainment- There will be concerts featuring local talent and musical performances from DISD students. We are also seeking celebrity guest performances.
