College Access Corps
Established in 2014, in partnership with Washington Campus Compact, the College Access Corps is grant funded by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS). College Access Corps supports local economically disadvantaged youth to become engaged in their education, learn more about the college application and financial aid process and become academically prepared for higher education.
AmeriCorps members are placed at selected member campuses, non-profits, or K-12 institutions, where they help develop, implement or coordinate college access programs within their local communities. AmeriCorps members recruit and train college students from their campuses or participating campuses to act as college access coaches to economically disadvantaged youth in schools, community agencies, or to student groups, that have a student population that is at least 50% eligible for the federally-funded free/reduced lunch program.
