Want to empower first-generation, underserved students to succeed in college and beyond?

Become a PeerForward College Coach! PeerForward connects students from underserved communities to college and careers by training influential high school students - Peer Leaders - to motivate their classmates to enroll in college.

You can join PeerForward and help train these Peer Leaders at Summer Workshops on college campuses across the nation.

As a PeerForward College Coach, you will meet one-on-one with a group of 8 students to help them build a personalized list of colleges that are a good fit for each student. Volunteers have the opportunity to work with students from across the United States and Bermuda to help them achieve their postsecondary education goals.

This position is a 4-day time commitment and a high-impact experience! By volunteering, you’ll participate in one of the most inspirational weekends of your life, connect to students and other volunteers in your community, receive free room & board for the entire Workshop, and most importantly, empower students from underserved communities to reach their true potential! The workshop will be hosted in Redlands, California.

Mission Statement

PeerForward unleashes the power of influential high school students in low-income districts across the U.S. to boost school-wide college preparation and enrollment.

Description

In low-income communities across America, PeerForward trains teams of high school students to guide their peers through making a postsecondary plan. These teams are part of a national movement to strengthen the college-going cultures in high schools across the country using the power of positive peer influence. By organizing school-wide activities and events throughout the school year, Peer Leaders educate their peers about postsecondary education options, increase the number of students enrolling in higher education, and ensure all students are prepared for life after high school. Peer Leaders not only change the culture in their high schools, but they are also part of a movement that leverages the power of students to make college the expectation, not the exception!
