Recruiting Organization: One Million Degrees

One Million Degrees and the Colorado Opportunity Scholarship Initiative launched the Finish What You Started Program for Adams County Residents.

Adams County residents ages 25+ now have an opportunity to re-enroll in college and complete their degree with the support of Finish What You Started. Whether looking to increase their earnings, make a career shift, or completing a life goal, continuing education is a big decision for students.

The new partnership between One Million Degrees (OMD) and the Colorado Opportunity Scholarship Initiative (COSI) intends to encourage returning adult students with some college no degree to come back to college and ramp up their career.

And we can use your support!

Finish What You Started Scholars will receive holistic wrap around support services including financial, academic, personal, and professional benefits to navigate their paths to graduation. OMD believes in the power of community and a robust network of supports for students on their pathway to career success...and this is where we need YOU!

Coaches serve as motivators, sounding boards, and thought partners for scholars. They work to set goals, build their network, navigate college, and plan their next career steps. If you have ever had the benefit of mentorship, now is your chance to give back!

Ready to apply and be a coach for our inaugural program in Colorado? Volunteer a few hours a month to empower Adams County students.

Coach Requirements:

  • Apply to be an OMD Coach
  • Complete coach onboarding
  • Meet with your scholar match virtually or in person one hour each month during the academic year

**While there is no residency requirement, please be aware that there may be required in-person events in or near Adams County

Coaches may also meet virtually with OMD Staff and other coaches to build community and share resources and practices.

If you have additional questions, please contact xmann@onemilliondegrees.org or 312-920-9605 x 312.
