1:1 Senior Advisor - Volunteer Roles & Responsibilities

The Crosby Scholars program requires each scholar to have a one-on-one advisor in his/her Senior year of high school. Each scholar will either self-select an advisor or be assigned an advisor by the Crosby Scholars staff from an available group of community volunteers. The Senior Advisor will meet with the scholar during the school day on the high school campus. Click here if you are interested in becoming a Senior Advisor.

Essay Readers - Volunteer Roles & Responsibilities

In the fall of each year, high school seniors complete their college admissions applications. Many of these students will need to submit written essays, which is an important part of the admissions application. This volunteer opportunity offers flexible hours to assist these students. Essay readers remain anonymous as the task is by e-mail only. The feedback received from essay readers could mean the difference between a college acceptance or denial!
