First off, Through The Vine has officially reached 53 countries worldwide within the first month of launching! Thank you all for the support, and we hope that you all continue to help us grow :) We have big plans for the future, but we’ll need a bigger platform!
Some things we want to address:
- We have a bio page for our essay editors on our website! Check that out here.
- We now have a resources page on our website! If you’re a high school student, this page will be incredibly useful to you. Check the page out here.
- We have a TikTok!!!! It’s @throughthevineorg – our lovely media director has already made a video, so check it out, like it, comment on it, and share it! Make sure to follow us too :)
- We’ve been getting some emails and feedback surveys from students. We want to remind you all that although our goal is to help students with the college application process, you cannot rely on us for things like editing your essays or brainstorming ideas for your essays. Remember, YOU are the one applying to college, not us!
- We’ve gotten a ton of mentee submissions and essay submissions recently, so it may take a bit longer to match mentees to mentors and to assign essays to essay editors. Please be patient! If there are any delays, we will address it privately with the student!
- If you submitted an application to be a volunteer and haven’t finished your training, please finish it ASAP!
- If you’re a mentor and have time for more mentees, please email us so that we can match you! There’s a lot of mentees waiting for a match :)
