ALL Student Loan Launches Interactive Website

Students and Families Will Find Useful, Unbiased Financial Aid Information

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - February 20, 2008) - Reaching ALL Youth, a project of ALL Student Loan, today launched an interactive website specially designed for students and parents seeking information on how to pay for higher education.

The website address is www.reachingallyouth.org.

The website offers specific and detailed information regarding the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), grants, and informed student loan shopping. In addition, information and on-line registration for ALL Student Loan's myriad scholarship contests are available.

Every month, the site will feature a new pod cast, hosted by Reaching ALL Youth staff, that offers insights on topics students and parents are sure to encounter as they apply for financial aid.

High school college counselors and nonprofit leaders can also find useful information and posters to help them guide students through the lengthy and complicated process. Among the items available for download are: financial aid guides in English and Spanish, a consumer's guide to federal student loans, information about scholarship scams, and more.

This website was created to further the Reaching ALL Youth goal, which is to develop a greater level of financial aid literacy among students and parents. In addition to the website, Reaching ALL Youth staff works one-on-one with students and parents, teaching them about how they can pay for college.
