Kentucky College Coach

KCC-banner 1

Kentucky College Coaches focus on mentoring high school students who might not envision themselves going to college, first generation college students, and/or populations with low rates of college enrollment. Coaches are recent college graduates, who are placed in high schools around the state of Kentucky, to work alongside guidance counselors and other faculty and staff supporting students as they transition from high school to college.

Kentucky College Coaches are 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.
