Summer Training is in Full Swing!

Annual summer adviser training is underway! From Alaska to Georgia, Program Directors are welcoming returning advisers and new Corps members. Each program has a unique training schedule that equips advisers to serve students with excellence. By the end of summer training, advisers will be prepared to address and measure Key Performance Indicators and collect and input data in our new online impact measurement system. They will also be prepared to serve students using best practices for parental engagement, FAFSA completion, admissions essays, and scholarship searches, among other responsibilities. As the year continues, advisers will participate in additional training and professional development. Please click the below link to learn more about summer training!


College Advising Corps Training and Curriculum Manager Veniese Bradley-Mitchell

“My passion for training is deeply connected to the urgency related to assisting deserving students to and through college. I am so excited about the 2015-16 summer training sessions! This year, the goal is to provide our advisers with the proper attitude, knowledge, skills, and resources to advise varying levels of high school students and families on great college options.  Our 2015-16 training plan is meant to build upon the advisers’ prior knowledge base and to engage advisers with heart and soul.”

North Carolina State University Second-Year Adviser Danielle Lechner

“I am most looking forward to collaborating with the new advisers. Summer training will be an opportunity to pass down wisdom, share best practices, and welcome diversity of perspectives and ideas! Summer training is the ideal opportunity to nurture our relationship as a Corps and learn from one another so that we can continue to grow together in the new academic year. During this time, it is important to learn how to support each other in order to make an impact as college advisers!”

College Advising Corps Regional Director Stephanie LaMarca

“The summer is always an incredibly exciting, busy, and energizing time to be a part of the College Advising Corps family. As a Regional Director, summertime means having the opportunity to visit Program Directors and advisers across the country and lead trainings on important topics designed to assist advisers in their day-to-day work with students. I cherish the time I get to spend interacting with advisers, listening to their success stories, and learning about their future plans. It is an honor and a privilege to work with such a talented group of Program Directors and advisers, and I look forward to another great summer of training!”
