First Graduate offers many opportunities for individuals to get involved in our program and support our students. You can make a difference by volunteering to serve in one or more of the following areas:
Academics - First Graduate's Academic Coaches help students improve their study skills and master their academic subjects, including language arts, mathematics and science. They volunteer at least once a week for two hours after school.
College Counseling - Volunteers can help students with college research, SAT preparation, and the development of personal statements for college applications.
Career Exploration - Career Advisory Coaches assist students with summer internship research, resume writing, and career guidance. Volunteers also serve as career panelists, Career Day hosts, and informational interviewers.
Student Evaluation - Evaluators interview and assess prospective students on Discovery Day (in March), part of First Graduate's application process. At the Presentations of Learning (in August), when students offer presentations about their progress, evaluators pose questions and offer feedback.
Organizational Support - Volunteers assist with a range of activities that keep the organization running, such as administrative work, mailings, fundraising, securing sponsorships and in-kind donations, event planning, and marketing support.
