Event Details

In a stop-gap effort to help high school students with their college applications, PhillyGoes2College, an initiative of the Mayor’s Office of Education, in partnership with the Free Library of Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Education Fund and PHENND, are offering assistance to 12th graders as they work to complete their college application essays.  

The workshops will be offered at the Free Library in five locations on Saturdays between October 26th and December 14th (excluding Saturday, November 30th)

The locations are:

Lucien E. Blackwell West Regional – 125 South 52nd Street

Joseph E. Coleman NW Regional – 68 West Chelten Avenue

Lillian Marrero Branch – 601 West Lehigh Avenue

McPherson Square Branch – 601 East Indiana Avenue

Greater Olney Branch – 5501 North 5th Street

Each Saturday from 10:00 am - 11:00 am, a college access professional will lead a general workshop on how to craft a good college essay and help the students think about appropriate topics. 

From 11:00 am - 2:00 pm students can use the computers available at these locations to write their essays or get one-on-one assistance from trained volunteers.
