Hybrid Adviser

CAC’s Innovation team is seeking a full-time Hybrid Adviser to increase the number of high-achieving, low- and moderate-income students who apply to, matriculate, and graduate from our nation’s most selective institutions. The Hybrid Adviser will provide personalized college advising (using both in-person and virtual advising interfaces) to help students identify, apply to, and enroll in a specific group of highly selective colleges and universities with graduation rates above 70 percent. The Hybrid Adviser will also be responsible for diligently recording and tracking student engagement and college outcomes.

Because high school students are often not available during school hours, advising sessions typically occur after normal business hours on a schedule to be determined by CAC. The Hybrid Adviser will connect with students on a flexible schedule and should anticipate regular evening and occasional weekend hours. Hybrid Advisers work remotely but have expected in-person office hours on a weekly schedule to be determined by CAC. Occasional out-of-state travel for trainings and special events is required. For more information about the Hybrid Adviser position and how to apply, please click here.

This position will report to the eAdvising Program Director and will be based in the Oakland, California area.


YouthBuild College Adviser

The YouthBuild College Adviser will play a critical role in delivering college advising through a new partnership between CAC and the YouthBuild Charter School of California (YBCA) to increase the number of YBCA students who apply to, matriculate, and graduate from college. YBCA students are between the ages of 16 and 24 years old, are from low-income families and underserved communities, and have previously left or been pushed out of the traditional school system without a diploma. This unique partnership seeks to re-engage these students and create a pathway to college and career for this traditionally underserved student population. The YouthBuild College Adviser will serve full-time at various YBCA sites to provide on-site postsecondary support to graduating students. Preference will be given to former CAC advisers that have recently (within 12 months) successfully completed their two years of service with CAC. For more information about the YouthBuild College Adviser position and how to apply, please click here.

This position will report to the Regional Director of Programs, West and an on-site liaison at each assigned school and will be based in the Los Angeles, California area.


Southeast Coordinator

The Southeast Coordinator will play a critical role in equipping our programs and advisers in North Carolina, Virginia, South Carolina, and Georgia with the information and tools they need to advance our programmatic partnerships with major supporters in the region including the John M. Belk Endowment and Oak Foundation. More specifically, the Southeast Coordinator will be responsible for creating resources related to these partnerships and managing data to track adviser and student outcomes. This role will also provide high-level administrative support to the Regional Director of Programs, Southeast. For more information about this position and how to apply, please click here.

More specifically, this individual will be responsible for creating materials and resources related to this partnership, traveling to train program directors and advisers, and creating a data-driven accountability system that enables program directors and advisers to meet the student- and adviser-level metrics outlined within the goals of this partnership. The Project Manager will also provide high-level project management support to the Senior Director of Programs. Moderate travel (approximately 35-40%) will be required.

eAdviser

CAC’s Innovation team is seeking full-time “eAdvisers” to increase the number of high-achieving, low- and moderate-income students who apply to, matriculate, and graduate from our nation’s most selective institutions. To combat the phenomenon of “undermatching,” eAdvisers provide personalized virtual college advising (using multiple technology interfaces) to help students identify, apply to, and enroll in a specific group of highly selective colleges and universities with graduation rates above 70 percent. CAC’s eAdvisers are also responsible for diligently recording and tracking student engagement and college outcomes. Because high school students are often not available during school hours, advising sessions typically occur after normal business hours on a schedule to be determined by CAC. eAdvisers connect with students on a flexible schedule and should anticipate regular evening and occasional weekend hours. eAdvisers work remotely but have expected in-person office hours on a weekly basis for trainings, team meetings and committee projects. Occasional out-of-state travel for trainings and special events is required. For more information about this position and how to apply, please click here.

This position reports to the eAdvising Program Director and will be based in one of the following communities: Lancaster, Pennsylvania; Kansas City, Missouri; or Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
