Make the college process easier

Make the college process easier

The College Board and DoSomething.org are looking for high school students interested in making the college exploration and application process easier to navigate.

The Youth Advisory Council on the College Process is being created and is looking for high school students who have taken or plan to take the PSAT, SAT or ACT, are passionate about improving the college process and making post-secondary education more accessible and can commit to the council until March 2014, providing a wide range of opinions and life experiences.

Council members will be selected by staff from the TMI Agency (a subsidiary of DoSomething.org) and will be informed by Nov. 1. The council will officially begin work the week of Nov. 4-8. Member responsibilities entail about 30 minutes every week from Nov. 4 to March 31. Most feedback will be provided in written form via online surveys, but there will also be a Google+ hangout once a month to discuss issues in more depth. The hangouts will happen at the same time and day of the week as you initially select in your application.

The deadline is midnight Oct. 27.

In addition to helping to simplify the college process, YAC members will also develop important leadership skills such as decision-making, presentation skills, working with a team and developing creative ideas. This type of experience helps build a strong resume and, who knows?  Participating in a college-related project like this might actually help you get into college!
