By volunteering with College Summit, you will make a difference in your community by empowering students to reach their college and career goals

VOL-IMG (003)

You have the power to help thousands of students from low-income communities unleash their potential. You don’t need any experience or special skills to volunteer. All you need is a passion for helping students in your community gain access to a higher education.

What is College Summit?

College Summit will connect 1.8 million students from low-income communities to college and career over the next decade. We do this by training influential high school students – Peer Leaders – to motivate their classmates over the school year to enroll in college. You can help train these Peer Leaders at our summer workshops on college campuses across the nation.

From Student to Peer Leader

Summer workshops are the cornerstone of the College Summit program. This is where the transformation occurs from student to Peer Leader. Workshop outcomes include:

VOL_GRAPHICS (002)Four days on a college campus changes the trajectory of a student’s life. 80% of students who attend a Summer Workshop enroll in college. In the past two decades, College Summit has worked with 250,000 students from over 500 schools across the nation. Our peer-to-peer model doubles the likelihood that a low-income student will enroll in college.
