One of the Dream Project's most important events is Admissions Workshop Weekend which will be held on November 13th and 14th from 9am - 4pm. Students from each of our thirteen partner high schools are invited to participate in information sessions from a variety of Washington colleges and universities. Many of our students complete entire college applications over the course of this weekend.
A critical part of the application process and this event is writing their personal statement. A good writing tutor can help a student produce a powerful, thoughtful, and polished personal essay. This year we are expecting over 650 high school seniors to attend the workshop. We would love to have you by our side helping students from local high schools apply successfully to college.
We are looking for people who:
* are comfortable working with high school students,
* can help students formulate their ideas into a strong college application essay,
* have solid writing skills, and
* have a general understanding of the college admissions process.
If you are not comfortable with volunteering as a writing tutor, please consider being a general support volunteer for the event.
If you're interested in committing to this effort, please go to the following link and register: www.dreamproject.washington.edu/workshop/help
When you arrive, there will be a brief orientation and overview of what's required in an admissions essay on the morning of both days. I will send out an email later about the details of the meeting.
Not only do you get the rewarding experience of helping students access higher education, you will also get lunch!
If you have any questions, you may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
