What We Do

College Counseling Services

Independent College Counseling Services

Upon completion of the Canvas Leadership Program and Service Learning Project, program participants will be eligible to receive personalized college counseling services. This service will help students navigate the college search and selection process and present their talent to the right colleges. 

To help you select the right college we provide the following services:

  • Surveys and assessments:

    We gather information that helps students and parents make informed decisions throughout the college choice process.

  • Standardized testing strategies:

    We will help you maximize your test-taking success. Will the SAT or ACT be a better fit? Should you focus on test-optional institutions? When is the best time to take the test? Also, we will help you stay on track so that you can take the test more than once, if necessary.

  • College selection and application strategies:

    Choosing the right college for you can be overwhelming. Let us help you figure out the right fit and give you application strategies that can help you get accepted to the right school for you.

  • Essay and short answer assistance:

    We offer assistance in answering those tough essays questions. We can help you ensure that your response not only answers the question but is well written. Well written answers help admissions officers understand your uniqueness, which goes beyond grades and test scores.

  • Interview Coaching:

    Practice makes perfect. We will go through sample interview questions and talk through your responses to make sure you are ready for the real thing.

  • Financial aid and scholarship assistance:

    We can help you find the resources available to you. We will also help interpret complex award letters and determine which college is the best fit financially.

  • Additional services provided based on specific needs.

  • BLMHTX
    BLMHTX

    In the wake of recent violence and brutality against black lives that continues to sweep the nation, BLMHTX formed as a locally-based, and Houston-founded, activist organization and collective of researchers, activists, artists, religious leaders, and community organizers that aims to educate, empower, and build coalition in order to address issues that impact black lives in the city of Houston.

    Our mission is to spark critical visions of a world where black lives matter while working toward making this a concrete reality here in Houston. In all of our work, we emphasize three core tenets: creative imagination, critical dialogue, and coalition building--all in the pursuit of intersectional social justice.

    BLMHTX employs an Ella Baker model of community organizing, a model which brings people together for sustained and coordinated strategic action for social justice. As such, in addition to direct actions and political engagement with local civic leaders, we are committed to building community through programming, trainings, community meetings, and conferences that combine critical dialogue and the arts in ways that creatively highlight and confront issues of racism and social injustice. These community building efforts are central to our aim of curating spaces for disparate members of the Houston community to collaborate, come together, and think about how to contribute to the valuing of black lives through their own areas of interest and influence.
