Volunteer for College Summit

I wanted to share with you this great opportunity to change the course of the lives of low-income students this summer. I’ve been volunteering with College Summit as a writing coach since 2003, and the 4-day workshops have been some of the most moving experiences of my life. If you find it rewarding to play a part in something bigger than yourself and want to help low-income students achieve the dream of making it to college, this should be right up your alley.

College Summit is an award-winning national nonprofit strengthening the college-going culture in low-income schools and communities. 79% of students who attend a College Summit workshop enroll in college, and 80% stay in college.

Each summer, College Summit calls on hundreds of summer volunteers—alumni, college/graduate students, young professionals, community leaders, and high-level executives—to help talented low-income high school students enroll in college. At intensive 4-day residential workshops across the country, volunteers coach students through the college transition process. Commitments range from four days to multiple weeks during the summer, and stipends are available for some positions.
