College Application Campaign

This presentation is from GEAR UP West 2017. Have you ever wondered…what makes an effective letter of recommendation? What should I write? Do colleges even read them anyway? They do! This session will offer tips on advocating for your students and helping your colleagues do the same. See examples of good and not-so-good letters, practice telling your students’ stories, and go back to your building with confidence that your students’ letters of recommendations will rise to the top.
This presentation is an introduction to Washington’s 12th Year Campaign and the FAFSA Completion Initiative. This material is from the Washington State GEAR UP: GPS for College Workshop in February 2016.
The goal of the month-long American College Application Campaign is to provide every graduating high school senior the opportunity to apply to college, with a deepened focus on supporting first-generation and low-income students, and other students who may not otherwise pursue a college education.
This resource guide is designed to assist college access professionals who work with high school students who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer (LGBTQ). The information provided has an emphasis on supporting transgender youth who plan to continue their education at a postsecondary institution.
