College Access & Success Coach, Americorps at College Possible
Posted by NPL Connects on Friday, October 18, 2019 at 11:00 AM PDT
College Possible is a growing nonprofit dedicated to coaching low-income students to-and-through college, breaking the cycle of poverty and empowering our workforce. Our rigorously-tested model earns top-of-field results that have helped 98 percent of students served earn admission to college and supported nearly 80 percent through graduation. A 2011 Harvard study found that the program more than doubles a student's chance of enrolling in a four-year college.
As an AmeriCorps organization, College Possible is recruiting college graduates to serve for one year to help make a college degree and college success possible for low-income students. With positions ranging from working directly with students to writing grants to coordinating events, there are many ways you can serve your community. Not only do College Possible AmeriCorps members make a difference in their community, they gain valuable experience for their next job or graduate school endeavor.
We have opportunities available beginning in August, 2020 in our Saint Paul, Minnesota; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Portland, Oregon; Chicago, Illinois; Philadelphia Pennsylvania; Seattle, Washinton and Omaha, Nebraska sites.
