National College Advising Corps
We place recent college graduates from one of our partner universities as full-time college advisers in America’s high schools. Advisers work to foster a college-going culture within the schools they serve, which is one of the best predictors of whether students will pursue higher education. Advisers become part of their school’s community. They collaborate with teachers and administrators to tie college-going culture into the life of a school, devise creative approaches to reach and connect with students, and most importantly, open the eyes of students and their families to the possibility of college. Equally important, advisers supplement, not replace, existing high school counseling staff, thereby reaching more students. From navigating the college admissions maze, to securing SAT/ACT fee waivers and assisting students and their families with FAFSA applications, our advisers become experts, mentors, champions, and guides. It is not hyperbole to say that they change the lives of the students they serve. The position requires tact, diplomacy, and a strong commitment to service. Successful candidates will demonstrate the ability to collaborate creatively and effectively with others in order to solve problems and reach goals. Successful candidates will also demonstrate excellent organizational and communication skills, including the ability to listen carefully and to write and speak persuasively. The position requires a bachelor’s degree. AmeriCorps college advisers will report to the program director and to an on-site supervisor in the schools they will serve. Advisers will be expected to live within their service areas and to involve themselves in the surrounding communities.
