Meets pressing community needs by mobilizing caring New Yorkers in volunteer service.

College Prep

Guide high school seniors through the college application process and help them prepare successful admission applications to get into the schools of their choice. During this four-month program, volunteers meet weekly with students to narrow down college choices, complete applications, craft personal statements, secure letters of recommendation, and successfully provide advice on the transition to college life.

College Prep projects run weekly from September through December and take place on weekday evenings (usually from 6:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m.) or Saturdays (usually from 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.).
