Timeline For Students

Steps for Each Year of High School


  1. Meet with your guidance counselor to ensure you are on target with your core academic requirements
    • Discuss your GPA and class rank
  2. Schedule yourself to take the SAT and/or the ACT
    • Consider using a study guide prior to the exam
  3. Stay active in your extra-curricular activities
    • Consider volunteering for a community activity or event
  4. Look for scholarship, grant and financial aid opportunities now
    • The more you look, the more you will find
    • Familiarize yourself with the proper essays and qualifications needed to receive such money
  5. Sign up for our business/professional mentor program
    • Whether you want to be a doctor, lawyer, airline pilot or a business owner, one way to find out if it is for you is to talk with people already in that field.
    • Don't wait until you are already in college. Too many students change majors or schools because they did not know what career they wanted to pursue. This causes many students to drop out.

Do Something Grants

Each fall and each spring, Do Something gives grants of $500 each to 30 young people - including 10 Canadians - who submit creative proposals for solving local problems.
