College Access Now (CAN)empowers students from low-income families to access, enroll and graduate from college at rates equal to their more advantaged peers. We need volunteers in our high school program, working with juniors and seniors to help make this mission a reality!
High School Volunteers work within Seattle and Federal Way public schools on a vibrant team made up of CAN staff and CAN AmeriCorps Members, dedicated to assisting students during their junior and senior year on finalizing college essays, deciding where to apply, submitting applications, financial aid/FAFSA, scholarship research, college matching and general support through the college application and transition process.
We ask that volunteers commit to 1 full academic year, 1 day/week for 1.5 hours, after school (around 2:30 to 4:00 PM) starting September 2017 to April 2018.
Training is provided! An Associates Degree is required, along with experience working with diverse populations of youth.
We have openings to volunteer at Todd Beamer High School and Dectaur High School.
Use your gifts to create meaningful change in the lives of high school students! Become a part of a talented, diverse and caring community, and see students grow as the year progresses as a result of your effort and time.
