The Program

Upon completion of the EB program all students will have mastered the most difficult part of the college admissions process—the personal statement. Additionally, EB will assist with supplemental essays; and the students will participate in an interview skills workshop.

Who We Serve

All underserved students are not created equal. They do not have the same access to educational resources (Test prep, etc.). Essay Busters serves those students in the middle: average college-bound students, unqualified for programs that place them at the top or bottom of their academic peer group, who do not have the money to hire test prep services, or private educational consultants.

How You Can Help

Approximately $125 covers the cost of one student in the EB program, adding up to a cost of $7,500 per school. Currently, we are working in 3 schools and hope to expand to 10 throughout the NY Metro area. Our goal is to raise $75, 000-100,000 by January 1, 2014. Donate HERE.
