College and Career
Guiding students towards the pursuit of higher education and higher goals.
Over the past 22 years, Felix Ventures has offered college guidance and financial assistance to its seniors thru scholarships. Over the years, the program has expanded its goal of helping students reach their educational goals by providing more specialized counseling and college guidance as well as adding three spectacular college campus tour itineraries.
Through our events, we educate, assist, and guide students in the life-long process of career exploration and planning for the future. Felix Ventures encourages its members to graduate high school, attend college, and build a career for themselves.
Every year we offer thousands of dollars to our graduating seniors that have been active in our program and have helped our program grow thru their leadership and contributions. Besides scholarships, venturers are able to earn a multiple array of awards thru specific participation in different aspects of our program and thru leadership.
