Adviser Training

Summer Training

Prior to entering their schools, advisers attend a month-long, comprehensive summer training, where they are trained on all aspects of the college process. Some unique aspects of our summer training include:

  • Experts in the fields of college admissions and financial aid are invited to lead workshops for the advisers, through which, advisers acquire the technical training and hands-on experience to help students complete the steps necessary to apply, enroll, and matriculate to post-secondary education.

  • Seasoned advisers have the opportunity to lead training sessions and role-playing exercises to expand on all aspects of the college application, enrollment, and matriculation processes.

  • Advisers attend tours of colleges and universities across the nation to learn about their campuses and make connections so they can appropriately adviser and advocate for students.

  • Advisers are trained on the College Match Best Fit model and trained extensively on recording data through our Student Tracker system, GRACE.

  • Advisers learn about the students they will serve through disability, diversity, mental health first aid, and youth development trainings, leveraging the near-peer model to connect with their communities.
