UWKC Benefits Hub Coach
Community and technical colleges are an affordable way for people to get a higher education, yet fewer than half of community college students earn a credential. Further, the COVID-19 crisis demonstrated the importance of a college education. So far during the pandemic, the unemployment rate for those with a high school diploma has been roughly twice that of those with a bachelor's degree at 9% and 4.8% respectively, disproportionately impacting black, indigenous, and people of color individuals. Benefits Hub helps students stay in school and complete their education by offering financial tools and resources through coaching, workshops, and grants. In the 2024-2025 school year, Benefits Hub purpose to provide 10,000 interventions to 5,000 students and target our efforts toward students of color, parenting students, and first-generation college students to take steps towards undoing systemic inequities. As a Benefits Hub Coach your role will be to meet with students individually and connect students to critical financial and emergency resources as well as provide information that aid students in achieving their educational goals. You will also build the capacity of the Benefits Hub program by developing strong partnerships and referral pathways that increase awareness and use of Benefits Hub services on campus. This position will offer opportunities to further develop your skills and understanding of direct services and outreach in higher education and non-profits. We are seeking to hire Benefits Hub Coaches at the following campuses: • Bellevue College • Green River College • Highline College • North Seattle College • Renton Technical College • Shoreline Community College • South Seattle College
