Volunteers are the backbone of Destination: College, bringing a wide variety of interests and skills to our student-athletes. They come from a variety of neighboring communities in Westchester County, N.Y.: Bronxville, Mount Vernon, Pelham, Chappaqua, Scarsdale and the like. Many have helped their own children succeed academically and with the arduous college application process. Our 60+ volunteers give their time to make our programs and students a success.
Volunteers staff all of our programs and have come to recognize that working with our student-athletes can be a wonderful and deeply rewarding experience. Volunteers typically commit one hour a week working as reading coaches, tutors for homework help and Regents test prep or mentors in our college access and retention program.
As one of our coaches said of our volunteers several years ago,
“My kids know when people really care. [Destination:College volunteers] really care and the kids pick up on this. Destination:College is the reason for my [team’s] success athletically and academically.”
