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 Christi). 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 9-10th graders or 11-12th 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. This project will begin its third year of a three-year grant for the 2021-2022 school year. To learn more or to apply, visit JazzHR.
