College Application Week: Help Underrepresented Students with the College App Process

What a great opportunity to volunteer! November 12th – 16th

Last year, Governor Mark Dayton proclaimed the second week of November Minnesota College Application Week. This week will provide a framework for high schools and postsecondary institutions to collaborate in a concentrated effort to engage and inform underrepresented (first generation college students, students of color, and low-income) students about the college application process and to highlight college and career readiness efforts occurring throughout the state. Over 100 high schools across the state are registered sites this year. They include high schools, charter and public, in the Twin Cities as well as cities and towns throughout greater Minnesota.

Volunteer opportunities:

  • assist students with the completion of college applications
  • speak to student or parent groups
  • share information about the college application process
  • share personal stories about your college journey
  • share about your area of expertise (financial aid, diversity, college preparation, essay writing, etc.)
  •  greet and sign-in students
