BRING YOUR RED PEN

BECOME AN ESSAY COACH

Whether you live in a OneGoal region or hundreds of miles away, you can play an important role in helping a young person on their journey toward college graduation. Throughout the spring, OneGoal Year 1 Fellows (juniors in high school) will be perfecting the art of the college essay. College essays offer OneGoal Fellows the chance to share their stories, to show how their unique background and experiences have made them who they are.

We’re looking for essay coaches who can help Fellows put their best foot forward.  You don’t have to be a seasoned writer to be a volunteer. The support and editing eyes of a caring adult will go a long way in strengthening Fellow’s essays, and our team will provide content training and support for volunteers.

“My husband Greg and I worked with four different OneGoal Fellows and they were all great!  Each one had an amazing story to tell. We felt very lucky to be able to spend some time getting to know them.”
