From Graduate NYC!:
As mentioned in our October newsletter, Graduate NYC! is pleased to be partnering with the NYC DOE, Goddard Riverside’s Options Center and CACNY in College Application Week, a statewide effort to promote the importance of college planning efforts for low-income, first generation college students. During this week, we aim to highlight the the critical work you do with students year-round.
This week we aim to see at least 200 NYC schools and more than 50 CBOs leading College Application Week (CAW) activities to support greater rates of college application. These efforts include application and exploration workshops for students and for counselors preparing students, drop-in one-on-one sessions for students working on personal statements or applications, and more.
We want to promote your College Application Week commitments! What are you doing this week to support students in preparing for or completing their college applications? Tell us what you’re doing here. We will promote it through social media channels and to the GNYC community.
This week NYC College Line (NYCCL)’s CAW activities will include sponsoring an App-A-Thon with College Summit and the NYC DOE and being part of the NYC Virtual College Fair. We hope you will join us and we also encourage you to submit questions through NYCCL’s Ask an Adviser.
If you have already completed a form for GNYC, Options or CACNY, we already have logged your commitments. Thank you!
If you would like to hold a workshop or volunteer at a school but don’t know where to hold it or which schools need support, please contact Sugeni Perez-Sadler at NYC DOE at firstname.lastname@example.org. There are registered schools that may still be seeking additional support throughout the week.
Thank you for your contributions to the 2014 College Application Week and for your efforts with students all year.
