The Great San Francisco Personal Statement Weekend

826 Valencia is proud to announce our ninth weekend-long personal statement tutoring event, The Great San Francisco Personal Statement Weekend, will be held on October 21 and 22 at Mission High School. We invite all SFUSD high school seniors to register for a weekend of free college essay help.


Here’s how it works: during the weekend of October 21 and 22, 826 Valencia will have trained tutors on call to give one-on-one attention to students who are writing responses to the UC's Personal Insight Questions, Common Application essays, and scholarship essays. We're prepared to support students at all stages of the writing process, whether they’re just starting, almost finished, or somewhere in between. We’ll also have computers on hand for easy editing and brain food to keep them going.


Registering for the event as a student is easy and free—just follow this link for more information and to sign up. You can choose to attend one or two two-hour session(s) on either or both days. Advance registration is required so we can best prepare to meet each student's individual needs.


Save the date and spread the word! Last year we served 191 students over the weekend, and this year we are hoping to exceed 200. Seniors: Don't miss this opportunity to polish your personal statements, making them clear, powerful, meaningful, memorable, and effective at getting you into college!
