AmeriCorps College Coach with Salish Kootenai College Upward Bound

About Montana Campus Compact

Montana Campus Compact (MTCC) serves as the intermediary for this project. MTCC is a CEO-led coalition of colleges and universities that support civic engagement, service learning, and volunteerism across the state. Every year we place cohorts of full-time, part-time, and summer AmeriCorps members with schools, colleges, nonprofits, and government agencies in Montana. The AmeriCorps projects we facilitate increase educational equity, break down barriers between higher education and community organizations, and address the root causes of poverty in communities across the state.

Duties

The Salish Kootenai College Upward Bound is a college-preparatory and career coaching program aimed to facilitate the success of low-income and first-generation students on the Flathead Indian Reservation. To do so, the program engages participants in activities and instruction that encourages academic proficiency and personal discovery. The Americorps member will serve as a College Coach. The College Coach will seek to provide comprehensive college and career preparatory services to high school students in one or more of the following Montana towns: Arlee, Charlo, Hot Springs, Polson, Ronan, St. Ignatius, and Two Eagle River. As an Americorps member, you will coordinate and implement college and career readiness activities to assist students in selecting and preparing for an academic and future oriented pathway. You will also work within the school setting and with community partners to meet student and program needs. You will provide student mentorship, academic assistance, and career exploration activities. You will plan and lead college tours and other experiential activities, connect students with academic and work-based learning opportunities, implement student portfolio projects, coordinate and lead guest speakers and other events, and complete record keeping requirements.
