Volunteer

The opportunities to volunteer change throughout the year.

Crosby Club Advisor

High school scholars meet in groups monthly. These Crosby Clubs usually begin in the second semester. Volunteers may serve as Club Advisors.

These advisors share positive personal, social, and educational experiences with their scholars.

These adults help Crosby Scholars achieve their goals by leading discussions on topics focused on preparing for the college admissions process.

The topics of discussion build a foundation of knowledge that prepares the scholar for his or her senior year. Crosby Club meetings are held during lunch blocks or after school on the high schools’ campuses, depending on the school's preference.

An advisor's handbook is provided to each leader with a curriculum and suggestions for leading each group.  Support is also available from the High School Program Coordinator.

Senior Advisor

K. Flora, Senior Advisor

Senior Advisors work individually with Scholars to navigate the college admission process.

Advisors meet with Senior Scholars beginning in late spring or early summer. Meetings continue as long as a student needs help.

If you are interested in being a Senior Advisor please complete and submit the documents below. 

In January, we recruit volunteers to serve as Senior Advisors for the next school year.  A background in school counseling or college admissions is helpful.

Please contact Jenniffer Jamison if you are interested in this opportunity.

Essay Readers

The hours for essay readers are very flexible. In the fall of each year, high school seniors complete their applications for college admissions. Many students need the eyes of an adult to read their college essays -  an important part of the admissions application process.

These volunteers read essays and provide feedback within a week. 

Essay readers remain anonymous as the volunteer task is by e-mail, only.

 

You can also volunteer to help with registration at academies, represent Crosby Scholars at a school's open house, and different jobs that help our program run smoothly.
