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.
Efforts to reach both the whole-school population and the priority students should be measurable in terms of the following:
The College Coach should work to help the school attain the following benchmarks:

The member is to serve in the site in a full-time capacity, generally 35 hours per week between the dates of September 1, 2015 through June 30, 2016.
During the term of service, the member will receive $1,210 per month, depending on start date for term of service, in living allowance, less FICA and other applicable taxes. Member will also receive health care and child care benefits as needed per AmeriCorps Program guidelines. Individuals in approved AmeriCorps positions are eligible for forbearance for most federally-guaranteed student loans. If your loan holder tells you that your student loan does not qualify for forbearance based upon your national service, ask if your service qualifies you for some other type of forbearance or for a deferment.
The member will have a 90 day evaluation and an end-of-term evaluation by the site supervisor. This evaluation will take into account completion of service hours and successful completion of tasks assigned, as determined by the school site supervisor and as agreed upon by Program Staff. At the end of a successful service term, the member will receive an education award of approximately $2,865. A minimum of 900 hours is required to receive the Segal Education Award.
