A new school year is right around the corner and, with that, the season for applying to college! Join the REACH BOLDLY Mentoring Program for one-on-one support throughout the college application process!
Applying to college? We can help!
We're here to help you apply to college, and guide you every step of the way! Whether you need help writing your personal essay, or navigating through the College Board’s website, you can count on us! There are a few different tracks you can take in getting help from REACH! Learn about your different options below.
Our advising track is set up to help you obtain one-time help from REACH. If you have a question about a certain part of the application process, or an essay you would like one of our editors to take a look at and send back to you with feedback, this is the track for you! Unlike our mentoring program, advising is set up if you only need help with a certain part of the application process or if you only want an essay edited once. You won’t get a mentor to work with for the whole year. For advising, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you within a week with feedback! We’ll also add you to our mailing list to make sure you know about important events and deadlines throughout the college application process!
Everyone: Learn Online
In addition to obtaining help from us through mentoring and advising, you can also definitely benefit from checking out our online Student Resources. This section of our website contains information about the entire application process—from applying to the college that’s the right fit for you to learning about the components of a successful personal essay, asking for letters of recommendation, and much more!
Our mentoring track focuses on pairing you up with a college student who will serve as your guide throughout the college application process. You are required to meet with your mentor at least once a week for the entire year so that you have a chance to form a relationship and work together. Depending on your schedule, you can either meet with your mentor at whatever time and public place works best for you, or you can meet with your mentor at our weekly REACH Boldly Saturday Sessions.
REACH BOLDLY Workshops
Our REACH BOLDLY Saturday Workshops are a part of our mentoring program. Each session involves a short presentation followed by a workshop where you can work in a group or one-on-one with one of mentees to apply the topics to your specific college application process. Topics range from SAT Prep to scholarships to a tutorial on college-level writing. The sessions are a great place to come to hear from currrent college students and to meet other high school students who are also going through the college application process, and snacks are always provided.
