About The Posse Foundation:

The Posse Foundation is a nationally recognized youth leadership development and college access program that identifies, recruits, and trains diverse teams-Posses-of public high school students and sends them to top colleges and universities. To date, more than 8,480 Posse Scholars have been accepted into top-tier institutions of higher education throughout the country. These young people have received more than $1.2 billion in full-tuition leadership scholarships from Posse’s college and university partners and have been agents of positive change on their campuses.

Posse’s unique and carefully structured, three-month selection process identifies candidates using criteria beyond academic achievement, including leadership talent, desire to succeed and ability to work constructively with people from diverse backgrounds. Posse’s high school through college programming makes it one of the most comprehensive programs of its kind in the nation.

In 2010, The Posse Foundation was identified by President Obama as one of 10 national non-profit organizations to receive a portion of his Nobel Peace Prize grant. The foundation is poised to double in size over the next ten years and dramatically increase its national impact.

Posse’s current university partners include Agnes Scott, Babson, Bard, Boston U., Brandeis, Bryn Mawr, Bucknell, Carleton, Centre, Colby, Wooster, Connecticut, Cornell, Dartmouth, Davidson, Denison, DePauw, Dickinson, Franklin & Marshall, George Washington, Grinnell, Hamilton, Hobart and William Smith, Kalamazoo, Lafayette, Lawrence, Lehigh, Middlebury, Mount Holyoke, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Oberlin, Pepperdine, Pomona, Sewanee, Smith, St. Olaf, Syracuse, Texas A&M, Trinity, Tulane, Union, UC Berkeley, U. Michigan, U. Pennsylvania, Puget Sound, Rochester, UT Austin, U. Virginia, UW Madison, Vanderbilt, Vassar, Wesleyan, and Wheaton.

Posse’s 2019 budget of $23 million supports programs in Atlanta, Bay Area, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, New York City, and Washington, D.C. Posse has a staff of 170 nationally. There is a national board of directors, as well as advisory boards in each city.

Volunteer Description:

Understanding that traditional college recruitment and admissions measures can miss capable students, Posse developed the Dynamic Assessment Process (DAP), alternative student recruitment and evaluation strategy. Each Posse site works with a network of high schools and community organizations, which nominate high school students for the Posse Program.

As we prepare for our 2019 Scholar recruiting season, The Posse Foundation is seeking volunteers to assist with DAP. There are three stages to DAP: a large group interview, an individual interview (for those who advance from the group interview stage), and a small group interview (for finalists). Volunteers are needed for the first phase of DAP, the large group interview. All volunteers have two main responsibilities during this interview: Registration & Logistics and Evaluation of Nominees.
