Kentucky College Coaches are AmeriCorps State service members tasked with assisting high school students to think, apply for and get accepted to college. This will involve doing whole-school activities, as well as one-on-one mentoring with core students from each grade level (9th-12th grade) designated by the member’s school-site supervisor. These priority students will be students who 1) will likely get through high school, but who are unlikely to go to college; 2) who would be first-generation college attendees; and/or 3) who are from low-income families.
