ORGANIZATION: AmeriCorps Seniors RSVP in New York City/CSSNY

Are you a firm believer in the value of education? Have you or anyone you know been saddled with student debt? Regardless, consider joining an amazing new program designed specifically to help New Yorkers navigate the complex student loan system and generally improve their financial health.

As an Ambassador, spread awareness of the program’s services in your community and surrounding ones by giving free, informative presentations and making connections with local community-based organizations (ie. job training programs and libraries).

Or, as a Counselor, be trained to work directly with clients to resolve student debt-related issues. In this capacity, answer live helpline calls, conduct intake, and provide one-on-one counseling sessions.

Qualified individuals must possess strong interpersonal, communication, and computer skills; complete an interview; provide two references; complete an 8 to 16-hour training series (via recorded webinar during the pandemic); and pass a final exam. For now, service is entirely remote, though is eventually expected to transition to in-person.
