Urban Alliance interns know the importance of college. Last year, 95% of program graduates were accepted to schools across the United States. One of the main reasons Urban Alliance interns have such a high college acceptance rate is our partnership with ServiceCorps and College Essay Day. Each year, Urban Alliance interns are trained by staff from the Atlantic Media Company on how to write a successful college application essay. After a large group training, interns are invited to Atlantic Media’s headquarters, the Watergate building, for one-on-one essay review. Thanks to the hard work of the ServiceCorps staff, over 80 volunteers partnered with interns and offered the youth advice – from the point of view of professional journalists.
Urban Alliance would like to thank the ServiceCorps staff and all the volunteers from Atlantic Media, Corporate Executive Board, the Advisory Board, and other companies that participated.
