Virtually support a group of high school students through the process of applying and preparing for college!

Volunteers will help students prepare for college through a series of weekly mentoring sessions covering topics including:

  • Resume writing and interview coaching

  • Decisions and consequences
  • Setting goals and college decisions

Volunteers commit to attending weekly virtual mentoring sessions on Wednesday evenings from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm.

Volunteers are required to complete a background check and attend a virtual mentor orientation.

Since 1877, The Fresh Air Fund has unlocked the limitless potential of more than 1.8 million New York City children from low-income communities. Each year, thousands of children enjoy summer adventures through visits with volunteer host families along the East Coast and Southern Canada and at the Fund's six overnight camps in upstate, NY. Fresh Air children also participate in year-round leadership and educational programs.
