YSTL Student Debt Conference

Tuition hikes, limited financial aid packages and decreased funding of higher education make college education an inaccessible burden for low income folks in our community.

Saturday, September 29 from 9AM-4PM

Regional Arts Commission 6128 Delmar Blvd. St. Louis, Mo

The event is free, RSVP to ystldebt@gmail.com
