This summer College Summit has some exciting opportunities to volunteer at our workshops. Our workshops are residential (for both students and volunteers), 4-day experiences (Thursday afternoon – Sunday morning) with students primarily from NYC, Buffalo, Bridgeport, New Haven – and, newly, Trenton, NJ.
We are recruiting for Writing Coaches and College Coaches.
Writing Coaches (WCs) work with a group of about 5-6 students on drafting their personal statement for college admissions. All Writing Coaches are trained on site in our writing methodology. There is no special qualification or writing background needed to serve in this role – all we ask is that you have a Bachelor’s degree and a heart to work with our students.
College Coaches (CCs) meet one on one with about 12-14 students during the course of the workshop to help them develop a college list. To serve in this role you would need to have at least one year of current professional experience as a college advisor.
