University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Launched in 2007, the Carolina College Advising Corps helps low-income, first-generation, and underrepresented students across the state find their way to colleges that will serve them well. By placing well-trained, enthusiastic advisers who are close in age and circumstance to the students they serve, the program aims to increase college-going rates at rural and urban high schools across North Carolina. During the 2017-2018 school year, 58 near-peer advisers are serving students in 78 partner high schools throughout the state.
