"First Generation" is a documentary film following four diverse high school students facing challenges around going to college. It was funded by the Go College! initiative, an unprecedented partnership with First Generation and Wells Fargo to help close the education gap for underrepresented students. The initiative kicked off in 2014 with the ‘Go College!’ Tour, spanning 12 major cities across the US and 70+ screenings. The film was shown free of charge to high school students, their parents, educators, politicians and influential members of each community and each screening was followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers, a Wells Fargo representative, as well as local educational experts to spur a dialogue focused on increasing college access for first- generation and low-income students.
