Fort Worth ISD Go Centers
GO Centers aspire to help students see pathways to careers and college, assisted by support from United Way of Tarrant County. They are physical spaces in schools and other locations, equipped with computers and overseen by school staff. Students visit the GO Centers and research career opportunities, collegeoptions, and financial aid. Students are assisted by mentors from higher education institutions and from the community.
