Description: Strengthening Educational Access with Dartmouth (SEAD) equips high-potential youth from under-resourced communities in the Upper Valley with the skills needed to thrive in high school and succeed in the best college for them. SEAD's 4-year model follows a cohort of first generation and/or low-income high school students starting their sophomore year of high school up through their sophomore year of college. This model encourages academic preparedness and personal growth in high school scholars through immersive opportunities and year-round group mentoring.
Time Commitment: Varies depending on role, but averages 3-4 hours/week
Setting: Local Upper Valley High Schools (all under 30min. from Dartmouth)
Group or One-on-One: Group
Population supported: First-generation and/or low-income high school students, ages 15-19
Application: Open in spring for all student roles in SEAD which include both year-round mentoring ("Educational Access Advisors"/EAAs) as well as paid SEAD Summer staff during the summer immersion.
