Jumpstart Your College Applications with Workshops for High School Juniors!

Are you applying to college, but not quite sure how to start or what to do? Our BCF experts will provide you with direction in one of our application preparation workshops.



An intensive, interactive four-hour workshop, "What's My Story?" generates practical strategies for using all parts of the application to "connect the dots" in revealing your story. You will:

  • Establish an overall theme for your applications
  • Identify your "hooks" and find opportunities to reveal them
  • Discover how to utilize essays, interviews and letters of recommendation

"Tips & Tricks for Developing a Winning Essay," a two-hour interactive workshop sponsored by high schools or social service organizations, includes a series of reflective, creative and editorial exercises that will enable you to:

  • Explore the critical, yet often unseen, aspects of your life experience that shape your perspective
  • Develop a greater awareness of, and confidence in, your "voice"
  • Discover strategies for effective risk-taking that will set you apart
