Kick-off Meeting for Early College Awareness Program
A volunteer-run workshop for SF middle-school students
Looking for a community service opportunity? Consider the Harvard Club of San Francisco's Early College Awareness Program!
ECAP is a program run by Harvard Club volunteers for SF middle-school students who could be the first in their families to attend college. Through an informational workshop in the fall, we hope to inspire students to attend college, to help them and their parents plan their time in high school with college in mind, and to introduce them to local organizations with a similar focus. (For details, see the ECAP website.)
We're getting started with planning this spring, and invite you to join the ECAP team. We need volunteers to:
If you are interested in helping organize the program, please join the ECAP team for an informal kick-off meeting on Thursday, March 25th, at 8:00pm at the University Club (800 Powell Street, San Francisco).

If you would like to join the planning effort but cannot make it on the 25th, or are interesting in volunteering on the day of the event, please indicate your interest in our sign-up sheet, and we'll be in touch about volunteer opportunities.
