Meet the Scholar Coaches

Filter Results

Each year, the Schuler Scholar Program recruits highly motivated, academically strong college graduates to work as AmeriCorps Scholar Coaches (SCs). These SCs come from a variety of backgrounds and offer diverse skill sets. In this ever-evolving and challenging position, SCs deliver enrichment programs and mentor Schuler Scholars. For some, the SC experience lays a solid foundation for next career steps, while for others it serves as a bridge before going on to graduate school. In either case, SCs become an integral part of the organization and of Scholars’ lives. When SCs complete their AmeriCorps service, they usually stay connected to Schuler and continue to be resources for Scholars and for one another. Check out what SC alumni are doing now.
