Volunteer with 826 Boston and College Essays
The college essay might be the most important piece of writing a student will author. The format of the personal statement allows students to use their stories and voice to distinguish themselves to an admissions committee.
Join 826 Boston for an upcoming College Essay Boot Camp to work with students on their college essays as they begin their senior year of high school. You will support students in developing their personal statements and move them forward in the writing process—to an outline, rough draft, or final draft.
