100% of seniors in our mentoring program graduate high school and are accepted to college. We intend to continue our record by guiding girls through the college application process with proper tools and resources, and getting them accepted into the schools of their dreams.
Twice a year, Girls Write Now hosts a free College Bound workshop series and seminar, open to all NYC high school girls, to guide them on the road to college.
- Fall College Bound Seminar: This fall, get closer to the college of your dreams! Join over 150 high school girls, parents, and guardians for a series of workshops and panel discussions about college decisions, applications, financial aid, and more. You’ll hear directly from admissions officers, get an in depth guide on how to pay for college, receive professional advice on writing an effectual essay in your own voice and style, and talk to current college students about what college life is really like! The day also includes a college fair with representatives from a variety of great East Coast colleges.
- Summer College Bound Workshops: Brainstorm, draft, and refine your unique story to wow college admissions officers. Our free college essay writing workshops offer one-to-one advising and peer editing sessions that will help you find your voice and set you on the path to college. Workshops run in July.
