AmeriCorps College Guide Program in Ohio Still Accepting Applications!

College Now is the fiscal agent for the statewide AmeriCorps College Guide Program, a near-peer initiative that places fresh college grads into schools and resource centers across the state to deliver programs and counseling on college and career exploration and financial education to 6th through 12th graders; provide support to 11th and 12th graders on strategic and tactile postsecondary access and financial planning; and facilitate successful postsecondary transitions, persistence and ongoing financial education with high school graduates. 


We still have 40 positions available among the 9 college access program sponsor sites, which would mean placement in cities like Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Oberlin, Zanesville, Marietta, Yellow Springs, Youngstown and Canton. 



In return for providing 1,700 hours of service over 11 months beginning August 3, 2015, AmeriCorps Ohio College Guide members will receive:

  • Compensation that includes up to a $12,530 living allowance, health insurance, and a $5,730 Education Award that can be used to repay qualified students loans or for future education expenses. (Also, federal student loans may be deferred for the duration of the 11-month term of service.)
  • Ample training, professional development and networking opportunities and a support and advising system for AmeriCorps Members avenues of interest - graduate school, teacher licensure program, career building - for "Life After the Corps." 
  • An overall great entry-level career experience, and
  • An opportunity to make a difference and help Ohioans reach their higher education dreams.
