Each year in NYC public schools, up to 80,000 8th graders need to apply for high schools. For Chinese immigrant students, they have a hard time navigating the process. Due to language barriers, they don’t understand it and can frequently choose the wrong schools. Their parents work seven days a week and lack the knowledge to help them with the process. Selecting the wrong school can lead some students to drop out. As we all know, most students need a high school and college education to become successful. We are looking for volunteers that speak Chinese who can help these immigrant students navigate the fair that day and provide guidance on the process.
