The role of the Posse trainer is to help recruit, train, and support Posse Scholars. During recruitment, trainers assist with outreach to high schools and community-based organizations. Trainers also interview candidates and guide them through the college application process. Once the Posse Scholars are selected, trainers work closely with them beginning in their senior year of high school and continuing to their graduation from college. In Pre-Collegiate Training, trainers facilitate weekly workshops for Posse Scholars that focus on leadership, cross-cultural communication, team-building, and academic excellence. To support the Campus Program, trainers travel to our partner universities four times a year to meet with Posse Scholars individually. Trainers track Scholars’ academic progress and help develop strategies to address any potential retention issues. Additionally, trainers work closely with Posse mentors (usually college faculty/staff members) to ensure Posse Scholars on campus receive the support they need. Trainers report to the program director of the site and work in close collaboration with co-trainers.
