The College Advising Corps (CAC) is a nonprofit organization that seeks to prepare students for college success in rural areas of North Carolina, helping to ensure that higher education is an attainable goal for all, regardless of socioeconomic status. The program, made possible through a generous gift from the John M. Belk Endowment, hires recent college graduates to work as full-time college advisers in high schools across the state. The advisers provide one-to-one college application guidance to low-income and first-generation college and underrepresented high school students.
Davidson College will hire up to 20 College Advisers to work full-time in rural public high schools in Central and Western North Carolina to increase college awareness, preparation and enrollment of disadvantaged students. These are two-year positions. Applicants must be 2011-2014 graduates of Davidson College.
The College Adviser position is a full-time, two-year AmeriCorps position. College Advisers are placed at partner schools to serve students and carry out the mission and goals of CAC as described above. The College Adviser Position will begin with pre-service training in July 2014. The position runs through June 30, 2016.
Applications are due by April 11, 2014. Interviews will be scheduled during the week of April 14-23 and hiring decisions will be made by April 30. Apply online at http://jobs.davidson.edu.
