Virtual College Coach

As a virtual college coach, you will provide crucial support to students across the country as they navigate the many aspects of college admissions.

Our program commitment spans from Summer 2017 – Summer 2018, beginning with a comprehensive training. After completing a matching survey, you will be paired with two incoming high school seniors and begin collaborating through our online advising platform. Please note that a background check will be required to complete our introductory training.

*Trained virtual coaches will also attend a convening kick-off in early July hosted by ScholarMatch in San Francisco. We will provide more details as we finalize our plans.

From then on, we will check-in with you and your students on a regular basis. Our guidance will be structured following monthly cycles with specific goals and outcomes to shape your interactions for each. From building a balanced college list to completing essential financial aid forms, we will provide you with the resources and training you need to confidently advise your students to successful college admittance!

Overall, we expect each virtual college coach to dedicate 3-5 hours per month to his or her students. This relatively low time commitment dramatically impacts the success of our students.

Once you complete the form below, we will follow-up with you to confirm your interest and explain next steps in greater detail.
