One Day Volunteer Opportunity to Help a Kid Get into College

From my friends at 826 Seattle:

COLLEGE ENTRANCE ESSAY MARATHONS
Do you remember writing your college application essays? The fear? The frustration? The complete distrust of your parents' unsolicited opinions? We here at 826 Seattle are committed to assuaging all of these rather unpleasant feelings by way of our Fourth Annual College Entrance Essay Marathon! We've expanded our offerings this year to four weekend dates in a variety of locations: West Seattle, Columbia City, Ballard, and our home base in Greenwood. We need volunteers interested in lending a hand as students plan, write, and revise these important (and very intimidating) application essays. Would you be willing to help out for a few hours during one of these sessions? Email Sue Spang, our coordinator of high school programs.  
 
Volunteers are required to attend a short, informative, and very entertaining training on either SATURDAY, OCTOBER 19 or SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 9. The marathons will happen on the following dates:
  • West Seattle, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 26
  • Columbia City, SUNDAY, OCTOBER 27
  • Ballard, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 16
  • 826 Seattle, SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 17
