The WELL, a center for Wake County high schoolers, has a busy November planned with test prep and college information sessions.
Here's what's scheduled, with program descriptions courtesy of the Wade Edwards Learning Lab, which is across the street from Broughton High School in Raleigh:
The learning lab also will dedicate space in its computer lab to work on online college applications during the North Carolina College Application Week, which is Nov. 18 to Nov. 22. Staff and computers will be available for students from 2:30 p.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and 2:30 p.m. to 5 p.m., Friday, of that week. During the week, there will be some opportunities for fee waivers.
Also ... the lab's leaders tell me that they are looking for more volunteer tutors to help high school students with their academic work. Right now, the lab has a waitlist of students seeking help. Volunteers typically come from the community or are students from area colleges. Appointments are made based on availability and areas of expertise and continue for as long as the student needs assistance. This is a great way to have an impact on an individual.
