Serve your community through a year of service with College Possible!

 

College Possible is a growing nonprofit coaching students from low-income backgrounds to and through college to break the cycle of poverty and empower the next generation of leaders. Our model has earned national recognition: the inaugural Evergreen National Education Award recognized our leadership in increasing access to and success in college for students from low-income backgrounds. It also earns top-of-field results: a 2011 Harvard study found that the program more than doubles a student's chance of enrolling in a four-year college, and our students are four times more likely to become college graduates than their low-income peers.

 

College Possible has a budget of $24 million, more than 140 full-time employees and more than 270 AmeriCorps and VISTA service members. During the 2019-20 school year, we will reach an estimated 25,000 students in all 50 states, at more than 100 partner high schools and at more than 400 colleges. 

 

College Possible is committed to equity, diversity and inclusion, and seeks to build a diverse workforce to create impact in partnership with the communities we serve.  We welcome a diverse pool of qualified applicants.  For each of its positions, College Possible is mindful about what best serves our students, and seeks to hire staff with relevant experience, skills and aptitude, and a commitment to the power of education.

Catalyze Program and E-Learning VISTA-St. Paul, MN

Further College Possible's efforts to scale to additional schools and prepare Catalyze program staff and AmeriCorps members to serve first generation and students from low-income backgrounds in achieving a Bachelor's degree to combat cyclical poverty at scale. Achieve this by evaluating current programmatic curriculum through collection and synthesis of relevant published research and best practices from analogous student success programs. Suggest improvements to programmatic curriculum based on this evaluation, then outline partner and coach competencies that support the implementation of this curriculum. Build program capacity by developing a comprehensive, year-long e-learning strategy that develops these curricular competencies. Create sustainability for project by creating an initial version of this strategy within our learning management system for use by coaches and partners.
