826 Valencia is proud to announce our eighth weekend-long personal statement tutoring event, The Great San Francisco Personal Statement Weekend, will be held on October 15 and 16 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 15 and 16, 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 171 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!

MAP to College! Please join us on Saturday, September 24th from 8:00am - 1:00pm for MAP to College. You and your High School Senior will receive valuable workshops on how to properly fill out the UC, CSU, Private and Community College application, as well as workshops on the new UC Personal Insight Questions and Financial Aid.
Location: The event will be held at The University of California San Francisco, Parnassus Campus.
This is a FREE event for Seniors
Details: MAP to College! is a free, one-day, annual college-going event held in the fall for Bay Area students in the 12th grade and their parents or guardians.
Fall semester of a student's senior year in high school is a critical time for college applications. As colleges become more competitive and selective, it is important that students understand the nuances of each college application and how to write a strong personal essay.
Attendees of MAP to College! can attend workshops on the UC application and personal insight questions, the CSU application, the Community College transfer path, the application and admissions process for private colleges and financial aid. *Financial aid workshops are presented in English, Spanish and Cantonese.
