Junior/Senior Outreach

The goal of Junior/Senior Outreach is for DU VIP students to work with juniors and seniors in our partner schools to navigate the complicated college application process. To reach this goal, we organize a variety of activities.

For the juniors, we:

  • Help the students identify areas of interest for possible future study.
  • Facilitate a college search to match the areas of interest with colleges.
  • Assist students in compiling a resume.
  • Work with students to write a college essay/personal statement.

When the students are seniors, we:

  • Conduct a "Perfect Application" workshop.
  • Work one on one with students to complete the Common Application and other college applications.
  • Continue to work with students on resumes and college essays.
  • Help students complete the CSS Profile (required by DU).
  • Assist students with completing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aide).
  • Inform students of possible scholarship opportunities.
  • Conduct an interview workshop.
  • Provide opportunities for campus tours.
 

In 2009-2010, DU VIP students worked with approximately 75 students from our partner schools to complete the application for admission to the University of Denver.
