Virginia College Advising Corps: Apply to be a College Adviser

February 4th, 2013

Fourth Years: Want to help more Virginia high school students attend college?  Concerned about the achievement gap in education? Virginia College Advising Corps is hiring the next cohort of College Advisers to serve in communities throughout the Commonwealth!

The University of Virginia launched the Virginia College Advising Corps (formerly the College Guide Program) in fall 2005 to address the widening gap in college access for low income, first generation, and under-represented students. The Corps places recent U.Va. graduates in high schools throughout the Commonwealth to work alongside school counselors and other college access organizations. Our goal is to encourage and assist high school students with college applications, financial aid, scholarship searches, and making the transition to post-secondary education.
