To support students, Solenn de Kersauson’s pro bono initiative provided one, two or 10 sessions to each high school senior in need of coaching sessions to prepare them for their college/scholarship interviews. This year was incredibly difficult for them as they were applying to colleges they had not visited; they were all stuck at home in sometimes difficult circumstances; and all of their interviews were virtual.

More than 150 coaching sessions were provided to students, and the results have exceeded expectations. All of the students have been accepted by the college of their choice—most of them thanks to scholarships (interviews they were also coached for). Solenn has continued the initiative by coaching them for interviews for summer internships.
