Middle and High School Panels

At the end of May, a group called Project Motivation sent out some emails asking for people to be panelists for middle schoolers who were interested in college.  It was meaningful in a way similar to my tutoring.  I got the chance to talk with kids who were enthusiastic about education even though they didn’t come from the most economically (or educationally) advantaged communities.

I was also on a high school panel the same day.  The high school panel was done through the Stanford Admissions Office Diversity Outreach Program, though, so it was less about telling enthusiastic students to go to college and more about getting the intellectual elite (within minority communities) to go to Stanford rather than Harvard or Berkeley.
