Navigating changes in college admissions

Volunteer College Coach (Virtual)

ScholarMatch is in need of college coaches to mentor high school seniors through the college application process. Our coaches play an important role in helping students build their college list, craft their college essays, apply for financial aid, and more.

ScholarMatch is recruiting virtual career coaches to help our college scholars prepare to launch their careers. Career coaches can choose to mentor a college student for a seven-month period or provide one-off career guidance and advice to students as needed.
