PelotonU VISTA Community Support Coordinator

PelotonU

About the organization

Nationwide, 45 million Americans have enrolled college and had to stop out because college wasn’t built for today’s student; the Wall Street Journal reports that over 70% of students are now post-traditional, which means they’re either older than 24, commuting to school, attending part-time, or taking care of a child. Their complex lives don’t fit within the fixed structure of traditional higher ed. That’s where we come in. PelotonU developed three programs to support working adults: our flagship college completion program, our advising program for post-traditional students in Austin, and our innovation program to ensure we continue learning and export those lessons across the country. We blend the best of online education with the best of in-person support to give our students a 5x chance of graduating.
