Degrees of Change, First Year Program Support
Degrees of Change mission is to prepare diverse, homegrown leaders to succeed in college and use their degrees to build more vibrant and equitable communities. We fulfill this mission by creating college transition and completion programs that send under-represented students to college together in community, provide them with training and support to develop their leadership skills and mentorship to support their transition to and graduation from college. Degrees of Change AmeriCorps project is to provide intensive support to the recruitment, selection and training phase of Act Six ( and Ready to Rise ( programs, supporting high school seniors to be college ready and transition to college successfully, while developing leadership skills and building a strong, supportive peer community. In this way, the AmeriCorps project is central to beginning of our journey with students to and through college. It is during this first year that our program participants, we call them scholars, build life changing relationships with their peers who will walk with them throughout their college journey and beyond, it is where they will receive leadership development, identity and cross cultural communication trainings that they will rely upon in both the most meaningful and most challenging moments in college and beyond that will help them persevere and persist towards their goal of a bachelor’s degree and living a life of impact. Applications will be reviewed in the order in which they are received with interviews taking place until placement is filled.
