- Did you feel overwhelmed and unprepared when applying to college?
- Did you wish you had someone to coach you through the process?
- Would you like to volunteer your time and knowledge to current Boston students to assist them in learning about post-high school choices?
If so, the Connections to College or Kids 2 College programs might be the perfect volunteer opportunity for you.
Connections to College (C2C) is a collaborative mentoring program between Suffolk University and Bird Street Community Center in Dorchester. As a mentor, you will assist college bound students from the Dorchester area in the college application process while giving them a first-hand look at life as a Suffolk University student. Two unique programs are offered; a residential summer program and an academic year program.
Kids 2 College (K2C) is a collaborative college awareness program between Suffolk University and the Eliot K-8 School that provides students with important information about college and career opportunities. The curriculum, implemented by Suffolk mentors, targets middle school students to make them aware of their educational options after high school and the necessary coursework that should be completed for acceptance to college.
