This fall, a corps of extraordinary people have spent long hours, and sometimes late hours, helping students finish personal statements and submit college applications. The students return with smiles on their face and feel very fortunate to have people who care about them so deeply!
Below are some volunteer facts :)
75 amazing individuals volunteered at Kid City this fall.
With their help, Kid City supported 50 High School Seniors with their college applications and personal statements.
9 of those students came in the week UC/CSU applications were due and were still able to get their applications submitted on time because of amazing drop-in mentors who stayed past closing hours and also because of our one-to-one mentors who were helping their students wrap up their applications or had already finished.
The average student at Kid City this fall was helped by at least 2-3 volunteers including mentors, music instructors, online readers, etc.
On a given week 35-40 volunteers were hard at work at Kid City AND
Kid City volunteers logged in about 80-100 volunteer hours a week this fall.
If each volunteer was to get paid a minimum wage, this is an investment of about $14,000+
