Volunteer for our High School Application Workshop!

After-School All-Stars DC is hosting a High-School Application Workshop on Thursday, January 31st, 2019 at Stuart-Hobson Middle School from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. We are asking our volunteers to assist our 8th-grade students with essay writing, application preparation, mock interviews, resume construction and general advice about application processes. As a volunteer, you do not have to be an expert in these fields for we are assisting 8th-grade students with processes we practice as adults. After-School All-Stars will also provide you with adequate tools and resources to guide your assistance. You do not have to attend the entire time. Please denote which “shift” works best with your schedule.

 

Our students come from various backgrounds. Some of them will be the first generation to attend college, some of them are the most technologically savvy in their household, some of them have never had to “sell” themselves and some are overtly confident. In any case, our students and parents need help clarifying and practicing for this whole “High School Application thing.”

 

ASAS DC’s High-School Application Workshop is a great way to demystify and introduce our students to the process of applying to a school. These skills have the short-term advantage of giving them better preparation for the high-school application process and the long-term advantage for college and even job applications.  We hope that you can bring your expertise to our Stuart-Hobson Students and help create All-Star opportunities for the young people we serve.
