826LA’s 8th Annual Great LA Personal Statement Weekend
November 18 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
When: Sat., November 18, 10am to 3pm & Sun., November 19, 10am to 3pm
Where: Manual Arts High School
Who: 200 LAUSD high school seniors + 200 826LA volunteers (that’s you!)
What: One-on-one writing support as students finish college application essays
It’s time to empower our future writers, activists, and community members.
Our Eight Annual Great LA Personal Statement Weekend is on the horizon, and you are needed to help 200 high school seniors increase their chances at gaining admission to their dream colleges.
Whether you’ve attended past Great LA Personal Statement Weekends or have never volunteered with 826LA before, our students need your help. You’ll spend the day working one-on-one with a student to listen to their story and help shape their life experiences into responses that reveal the student’s incredible dedication and character.
You can volunteer for either one or both days.
