Get Involved

QuestBridge Scholar and Alumni involvement is central to QB25. We want to hear your stories and your ideas about possible session topics or affinity groups you might want to convene during the Summit. We also hope to feature many Scholars and Alumni in our panels and discussions.

QB25 Affinity Groups

We’re bringing together QB Scholars and Alumni with shared interests and identities through our QB25 Affinity Groups. Meet with groups casually over mealtimes and after sessions. In order to create the groups, we need your input by June 30! Please tell us what groups you want to see at QB25:

QB25 Community Event: Volunteer!

Paying it forward: College advising and essay guidance for QuestBridge College Prep Scholars

Join us for a pre-QB25 session where you will volunteer to advise QuestBridge College Prep Scholars, rising high school seniors who are about to apply to the National College Match. You’ll have a chance to share your college experience and assist students with their college essay. A rewarding opportunity to “pay it forward” to students who are exploring their college options and preparing for the year ahead.

Please note: We expect this to be a small, interactive session of around 60 people or less.

Session time: Friday, July 26 at 1:30 – 4:00 pm at the SF Marriott Marquis. Please note this slight time change.

Volunteer expectations:

  • Please arrive no later than 1:30 pm for a brief orientation on the session. College Prep Scholars (and their families) are also expected to arrive between 1:30-2:00 pm.
  • You will share your college experiences in informal discussions with students and possibly parents.
  • You will work with a small group of students to give feedback on their college essays, roundtable style.

Please complete this brief interest form by June 6. You must be a registered attendee of QB25 to participate. We have a maximum of 15 volunteers for this session, and we will notify you in June if you are selected for a slot.

Present a Breakout Session – Call for Proposals

After many conversations with QuestBridge Scholars and Alumni, we have thoughtfully created breakout sessions around the QB25 core themes, but want you to have the opportunity to share your experiences and expertise with the community. If you would like to present a breakout session that is not already listed but still resonates with the core themes, please submit a proposal.

This application is now closed.

Become a QB25 Volunteer

We are building a team of QuestBridge Scholar and Alumni volunteers who are excited to help create incredible memories at QB25. Volunteers will be the face of the conference, and we are looking for people who are passionate, enthusiastic, hard-working, and customer-oriented to be assigned to various roles and responsibilities.

This application is now closed.

I’m excited to attend because this will be the first conference where my identity as a formerly low income student is centered and affirmed.
