Do you believe that everyone deserves equitable access to higher education? Are you interested in education advocacy and news writing? Do you want to make a difference in the lives of the young people in your community? If so, this is the opportunity for you!

Chicago Education Advocacy Cooperative (CHIEAC) is an education non-profit based in Chicago that aims to ensure equitable access to high-quality education for all, regardless of status and identity, through the supply of support services and commitment to proactive advocacy.

We’re looking for enthusiastic volunteers with an interest in education advocacy and writing to write for our blog. You would be responsible writing one article a week. Articles can be on any education-related topic, for example education reform, advocacy, and tips and tricks for students entering or planning to enter college, college life, etc.

If interested, go please send a resume and 400-500 word writing sample - does NOT need to be related to educational advocacy - to Benjamin Drury (benjamin@chieac.org).

Mission Statement

We are working to ensure equitable access to education for all. We support current and prospective underrepresented college students as they transfer from community college to their four-year institution. We provide support groups for remote learning students. We host sessions for students seeking to create change on their campus.

Description

We started in January 2020 as a non-profit entity focused on supporting students, faculty, and administrators seeking to improve the education system at all levels.

Since then, we’ve helped hundred of students successfully apply, get accepted, and complete college level courses. We collaborated with the Coalition for Immigrant Mental Health as part of their Annual Convening Series. We started the Undocumented Student Relief Fund and (in 2020) awarded $1000 in support to college students who need it the most.

Moving forward, we remain committed to our mission of providing equitable access to high quality education for all students, faculty, and administrators. We are currently working with 12 Future Scholars Fellows as they navigate higher education for the 2021-2022 academic year. We are looking to grow and expand and need new and innovative ideas on how to best serve underrepresented college students as they seek social mobility through higher education.
