Advisers work full-time and focus on mentoring students (especially those from low-income backgrounds) through the complex steps toward college enrollment. Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree. Deadline to apply is April 10. Contact Jamie Jacobs, Director of Professional Development, at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
