About

Are you looking for something fun to do on Fridays? Something casual? I would like to ask you to volunteer with DCTMI as part of our College Nights, a collaboration with the Student Education and Leadership Fund. We’ll even provide dinner. Promise.

You will be joining us for a fun and rewarding time as we support high school students by helping them learn about post-graduation options and by reviewing their materials for job and college applications.

Put us on your calendar for Thursday, May 4th starting at 5:30 pm.

We will be working with students who have brilliant aspirations but who may not have the support system to help them maneuver the complex college admissions process. Without help and support, college attendance may remain an improbable goal for these students rather than a reality.

By joining us, you can inspire a young person and give them the support they need to make the transition from high school to post-secondary education in order to pursue their dreams. And they might just do the same for you, whether your aspirations are to make a difference in someone’s life, build a better community, or simply lend a hand to a student in need.

To understand the difference you can make, see what an impact mentoring and guidance made for Omarina Cabrera in Frontline’s The Education of Omarina at http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/frontline/film/the-education-of-omarina/transcript/
