Doubenz Fabius has joined the program team at Daniel Trust Foundation as Program Associate
As Program Associate, Doubenz will be responsible for providing first-generation and low-income high school seniors in the Daniel Trust Foundation Mentoring Program with the tools and resources they need to succeed in college, career and life.
Doubenz graduated from Bassick High School in Bridgeport, Connecticut and is currently a senior at Fairfield University where he is majoring in Communications with double minors in Public Relations and Sports Media.
Asked why he decided to join the Foundation’s program team, Doubenz said:
“Daniel Trust Foundation has had a huge impact on my life in many ways. As I reflect on how much this foundation helped me, I am inspired to pay it forward."
"I want to help students the same way I was helped and provide them with the tools and resources that are needed to be successful."
Doubenz is looking forward to being an amazing mentor to students and is excited to learn about their stories, goals, and aspirations as he assists them with the next chapter of their lives.
The Daniel Trust Foundation Mentoring Program is a college and career success program. The program focuses on supporting first-generation and low-income students in 3 areas: College Preparation, Career Development and Financial Literacy.
100% of students who participate in the mentoring program graduate high school on time and 93% graduate from college within 4-5 years.
The program is open to high school seniors from underserved communities in Bridgeport, CT; New York, NY; and Houston, TX who receive free or reduced priced lunch, have a 3.0+ GPA and have plans to attend a 2-year community college or 4-year university.
“I highly recommend high school seniors apply for the mentoring program because our team provides many tools and resources needed for the college application process," said Doubenz. “Some of these tools and resources include helping students complete the Common Application, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, and the College Board CSS Profile."
