Applying for college is a confusing and overwhelming project, one that is already challenging for students lucky enough to live in school districts that offer well-funded college counseling offices at their local high schools. Students who attend less well-funded high schools, or who are taking a non-traditional path to college, often fall through the cracks. Here at College Coach, we believe deeply in the power of education, and we are committed to helping everyone access it. To that end, we developed a Community Support Committee a few years ago and are always looking for opportunities to help under-served populations with the college application process by working with the non-profit organizations that serve them.
Workforce Development Program at Dana Farber
A recent highlight of our activities includes volunteering for the Dana Farber Workforce Development Program. The Workforce Development Program mentors students, giving them internships and providing them with job training. In addition, they assist their students with their college applications.
