Volunteer at Discovery Day - Saturday, April 26, 2014

Filed in:
Volunteer at Discovery Day 2014

Discovery Day is the second step in the recruitment and assessment process for prospective program participants (the first step is a written application and teacher recommendations). 

Volunteers serve as evaluators, observing students as they participate in activities, conducting student interviews, and providing an assessment of each student's candidacy. We rely on volunteers to guide the selection of the next First Graduate cohort of seventh graders (as well as backfilling older classes) who will succeed and thrive in the First Graduate program.


Cap & Gown Was A BIG Success!

Cap & Gown Was A BIG Success!

Cap & Gown 2014 was a resounding success and we couldn’t have done it without all the support we received from our 22 corporate sponsors, 28 in-kind donors, 27 individual sponsors, 420 guests – over 90 of who donated during the event – and our countless volunteers and supporters.

This year we raised more than $360,000 - a 25% increase from last year's event.

We asked you to think BIG and you did.
