LANSING, Mich. — Michigan College Access Network’s AdviseMI program, also known as Advise Michigan, is now hiring 37 college advisers for the 2020-21 school year. These AmeriCorps advisers serve in selected high schools across Michigan, particularly high schools in communities with low college-going rates and low adult educational attainment rates. Applications for these adviser positions can be submitted using the website listed below.

Recent bachelor’s degree or master’s degree recipients serve alongside high school counselors and other school professionals to support students as they make the transition from high school to postsecondary education. Advisers serve full time and focus on advising students through the complex steps toward college enrollment. Advisers provide students and their families with relevant information regarding the benefits of a postsecondary education, preparing for college attendance, and the admission and financial aid processes.

“Serving in this AmeriCorps role is an outstanding way to begin your professional career,” said Ryan Fewins-Bliss, executive director of MCAN. “Following their service, our advisers go onto prestigious graduate programs, careers in higher education, and beyond.”

This service role provides an annual stipend of $25,000, four weeks of all-expense paid college access/preparation training, health insurance, and a $6,195 education award to pay back student loans or pursue graduate education.

Applicants must also be a United States citizen, a national or a legal permanent resident and at least 18 years old. Proof of age and citizenship will be required during the selection process.
