Respond by Friday, September 30.

Thanks to all of our members and volunteers, we have had a terrific first year in our philanthropic partnership with Genesys Works. As you’ll recall, Genesys Works is a non-profit that trains low-income high school seniors in professional skills, and provides them with a corporate internship during their senior year. Genesys Works also helps these economically disadvantaged students with the college application process – from applying online to financial aid and scholarships. We believe that Genesys Works’ mission fits well with YPF’s philanthropic goals.

Genesys Works currently has a class of 185 interns, each of whom writes 1-3 essays, totaling over 500 essays that need to be reviewed and edited. As such, they are seeking volunteers from YPF to help proofread and edit some essays. It makes a huge difference when the essays have been edited by a professional eye and suggestions are made to improve the essay. 99% of Genesys Works’ 2016 class were accepted into college and having top notch essays was a big reason!

If you would like to volunteer, please email Ray Miller at no later than Friday, September 30th indicating your interest. Once we receive your indication of interest, a program coordinator from Genesys Works will contact you and send you essays. These essays need to be edited and sent back to the program coordinator who contacts you no later than Friday, October 14th.

We would love to have as many volunteers as possible so we can continue to grow our relationship with Genesys Works. With that said, please only volunteer if you know you can edit and send the essays back by October 14th as that is a key deadline for Genesys Works’ essay review process. We are excited about our ongoing initiatives with Genesys Works.
