2019 - 2020 Oregon College Access Corps
 
 
 
Post-secondary education is a critical tool to break the cycle of poverty and improve the health and welfare of low income children, their families and communities. Many youth who have been labeled low-income, youth of color or first-generation youth lack the historical privilege and social capital to effectively navigate the post-secondary application and financial aid process. Furthermore, low-income youth of color and first-generation youth also face institutional racism and a growing educational opportunity gap. College Access Corp is looking for motivated, energetic candidates who can use their passion for racial equity, social justice, and education to recruit college students to serve as College Access Coaches for K12 youth of color, first-generation youth and economically disadvantaged youth. This full-time 10.5-month AmeriCorps program with 15 sites across the State of Oregon is a great opportunity to improve the lives of target youth, deepen the college experience of the coaches, and build campus-community partnerships that strengthen educational outcomes for low-income youth. For more details on individual sites go to www.oregoncampuscompact.org/college-access-corps.html
