College Adviser, College Advising Corps – Rhode Island 

As the largest college access nonprofit in the country, College Advising Corps (CAC) is devoted to giving every student the opportunities that college offers. CAC focuses on post-secondary enrollment and completion among low-income, first-generation college and underrepresented high school students by delivering personalized, knowledgeable guidance on college admission, financial aid, and enrollment. We accomplish this by placing well-trained, recent college graduates as full-time college advisers in high schools across the nation. Advisers become part of their school community, collaborate with teachers and administrators, devise creative approaches to reach and connect with students and families, and play an integral role in changing the lives of the students they serve.

Hybrid Adviser, Texas

CAC’s Innovation team is seeking full-time Hybrid Advisers to support a pilot project with the Texas Education Agency (TEA) to increase college and career readiness, postsecondary enrollment, and postsecondary persistence among Texas high school students. Specifically, Hybrid Advisers will be primarily based in Austin, TX, serving as one of two advisers in a school in Coastal Bend Texas (outside Corpus Christie). Hybrid Advisers ensure that students have the information necessary to explore the full range of college options and are also responsible for diligently recording and tracking student engagement and programmatic milestones leading to college enrollment.

In this project, Hybrid Advisers serve either 9-10 th graders or 11-12 th graders through virtual 1-on-1s, regular delivery of timely content via text and email, and monthly in-person events (involving overnight travel) that reinforce critical milestones in postsecondary access and success. They also support the design and development of content that gets delivered to the students they serve and assist with other operational and management tasks as needed. As this is a pilot, the Hybrid Advisers are expected to contribute to internal learnings around effective student engagement, in-person events, and data management practices to help CAC refine the model for future scale.
