First Graduate’s 8 th grade students are applying to high schools all over San Francisco, and we want them to shine! Help 8th grade students who need to interview for independent high schools hone their interview skills for the day. Work with a student one on one or in a small group on what they will talk about, common questions, and interview etiquette.
Light snacks will be provided. We’ll start with a short introduction and training session, followed by Part 1, where you will meet with students to help them prepare. In Part 2, students will be rotating through a series of 2 or 3 mock interviews! The end result will be a group of future 9 th graders with interview skills that wow!
To sign up, please contact Sara at firstname.lastname@example.org, AND be sure to fill out the volunteer information form at firstgraduate.org/volunteer.
Wait, did you say high school interview?
First Graduate recruits students from public middle schools in the SFUSD. Once it is time for students to transition to high school, First Graduate helps students apply to the right high schools where they can become strong college candidates and gain the academic skills necessary to succeed in college. Students in San Francisco must apply to high school because all high schools are city-wide schools, and the more prestigious schools often require an interview. Even if a student chooses to continue to go to public school, they will need to put together a top-notch application to get into the more competitive high schools.
