At this time of year, college application deadlines loom large. That is where 826 Boston comes in to offer support on the sometimes daunting college essay writing process. Our team hosts a series of events that bring volunteers and high school students together to brainstorm, draft, revise, and polish college essays. 826 Boston’s College Essay Boot Camp at Northeastern University on October 20 drew 124 students and 84 volunteers. Our efforts to help students reach their college admissions goals continued with a flurry of College Essay Boot Camps on the Road, where we were grateful to partner with volunteer tutors from Elsevier, Shorelight, Babson College, Ropes & Gray, Hubspot, and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. In total, 826 Boston served nearly 300 students through this meaningful program – thank you to all of our partners for making it possible!
