High school students will converge upon the UW Seattle campus for Admissions Workshop Weekend (AWW), Dream Project’s largest on-campus event. This year, it will take place on Saturday, November 11, 2017 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM.

Students will receive support from college admissions counselors, writing tutors, and Dream Project mentors throughout the day as they work towards completing their college, financial aid, and scholarship applications.

In addition, there will be a Resource Fair featuring representatives from different colleges and post-secondary programs as well as workshops featuring topics such as writing personal statements, completing job applications, and creating a LinkedIn profile.

Lunch and limited transportation will be provided. Mentees can learn more about AWW from their Dream Project mentors–or they may visit the event page at http://www.washington.edu/dreamproject/events/aww/. To sign up, please visit http://dreamproject.org/aww.

Alumni and community members are also invited to volunteer as writing tutors or as another specialist. Volunteers may sign up on http://dreamproject.org/awwvolunteer.
