Check out this great "Where to Care Guide" for Eastside students.  This includes many volunteer opportunities and ideas!

Still Deciding on College? Try a Virtual Campus Visit.

 Online tours and info sessions help bridge the gap when students can’t check out a campus in person.  

  • The Washington GEAR UP program has information about visiting campuses in person or virtually. There are several resources through the "Visit A Campus" link. https://gearup.wa.gov/students/visit-a-campus 
  • GEAR UP also offers a series of virtual campus visits. These video presentations highlight colleges across the state, including a number of public and private four-year universities and two-year community and technical colleges.  
  • For schools with no virtual tours available, consider doing an online scavenger hunt. Use the form to research, compare choices, and find a good fit.
