Meet Samantha & Kristen


As part of Hudson Guild’s Student Success Centers Program, Samantha (top right) & Kristen (bottom right) are college & career access advisors for youth in the community. In collaboration with The High School of Fashion Industries and High School of Hospitality Management, Samantha and Kristen currently work with thousands of students to prepare them for college and the workforce.

Through lesson plans and one-on-one sessions they assist students with everything from exploring their interests, building resumes, learning hard and soft skills, attending job fairs and college tours, to learning about financial aid, filling out paperwork, applying for college and jobs, and even S.A.T. preparation.

Samantha & Kristen feel lucky to be able to provide the same community that they grew up in, with the support and resources necessary to succeed in their college and career journeys.

Doodle for Google


Illustrators and engineers from Google came by last month to doodle with our After School participants! They gave an introduction to Google Doodles, shared about their creative process, and helped the kids create their very own Google Doodles for a chance to win fun prizes, scholarships, and even have their drawing featured on Google’s homepage for a day.
