The meetUp - Students Session
Potential Scholars! Come join us for an afternoon of fun and information about our program. Meet your 9th Grade Team and potential class at our next session! We answer all your questions about our program, the commitment, and opportunities for you. We also share the best, hardest, and most necessary parts of the program. Join us at our next session - we want to meet you!
The meetUp - Family Edition
This Family Edition is for the caregivers and adults in our potential Scholars life (all adults invited)! We know that you have questions about how our program has changed and how being in our program is a benefit, even in the midst of a pandemic. We made some changes to adapt to the current times, but our mission still rings true. Join us for an evening to learn about the community of support you and your child will receive here at SEO.
Meet & greets
Potential Scholars, Parents, and Families join us at our Meet & Greets to meet our SEO Scholars Program Staff (a.k.a your second family) and learn more about the program from different perspectives.
School Partner Kick-OfF
School and community partners join SEO's Kick-Off to learn more about our program and how we work in partnership with you to ensure that NYC students are receiving the support they deserve to excel. If you work at a school or community organization, register for our Partner Kick-Off event here.
GIRL Talk! Series
Ladies, join Girl Talk! with SEO - a space for empowering our young ladies to learn about and stand-in their power. We'll have real conversations about your experiences and share tips for how to feel and be your best. There will be three sessions where we'll discuss female confidence, share best practices, and be each other's hype-women.
The Udugu Series
UDUGU means Brotherhood in Kiswahili. This series has been created to give young males who are interested in SEO a space to begin building community during the application process. There will be eight workshops where we will discuss topics such as Black & Latin pop culture, your personal impact on the world, and how we (as young men) navigate our current society.
Application Workshops & Office Hours
Students, are you having trouble starting or finishing your SEO Scholars Application? Do you have questions about teacher recommendations, grades, or uploading documents? Come to our Application Workshop to receive individualized support from a team member.
Got an interview with SEO Scholars? Join us at the interview workshop to get some tips and practice interview skills! At SEO, we believe practice makes perfect, so we'll have opportunities for you to practice your response to interview questions and get feedback. This is a judgement-free zone, where practice and progress is the goal!
