Coles, who recently starred in TV Land's "Soul Man" and is best known for her stints on Fox's "Living Single" and "In Living Color," will lead her own workshop, "PMS: Power, Money and Success," which she said encourages students to define power and success before they pursue higher education, and gives them guidance on how money works, "so they don't get caught up in the credit trap that often happens in college."

Paulette Jackson, UNCF's vice president of development, said it's critically important to reach and prepare students— even those who are in middle school — so they don't waste resources or time taking the wrong courses in high school or remedial courses their first years of college. The tour will also educate parents on resources available to help them navigate their child through college, she said.
