About Beyond 12:

Beyond 12 is a technology-based service organization whose mission is to increase the number of historically underrepresented students who graduate from our nation’s colleges and universities. Through a unique, hybrid approach of virtual student coaching combined with innovative technology products, including our MyCoach mobile app and our student tracking platform, Beyond 12 helps high schools and colleges provide their students with the academic, social, and emotional support they need to succeed in higher education. By collecting and sharing longitudinal data that crosses K-12 and higher education, Beyond 12 not only provides students with differentiated coaching that ensures they earn a college degree, but also provides actionable feedback to high schools about their college preparatory efforts, informs the retention work of colleges and universities, and influences the national conversation about student success.

Beyond 12 has created a network of college coaches who provide virtual, 1:1 coaching to students who attend its partner schools and programs, beginning the summer after their senior year of high school. In this “near peer” model, recent college graduates who successfully completed their own college degrees are assigned to coach college-bound high school students. Coaches help students navigate six key challenge areas: achieving academic and career goals; balancing school, work and extracurricular activities; utilizing campus resources; understanding and accessing available financial resources; networking and building social capital; and planning for college graduation and career. Ultimately, coaches help students make the most of their college experience by helping them become academically and socially engaged in campus life.

About the Position:

Are you a recent college graduate who is passionate about lifting other students as you climb your own ladders of success? As a college coach, you will work with students virtually -- phone, video chat, text messaging, email, and social media -- to help them navigate the beginning of their college career and, ultimately, achieve their dream of earning a degree. You will use your academic and personal experiences to help your students set goals, create education plans and budgets, and manage their time effectively so they can be successful in and out of the classroom. You will also consistently collect important data about your students to keep track of their progress and serve them in the most effective way possible, and help our organization better understand college persistence and graduation trends.

About You:

You are passionate and excited about impacting the lives of college students from underrepresented backgrounds. You consistently demonstrate empathy and respect by seeking to understand the obstacles others face and by creating a safe and supportive environment in which they can interact with you virtually. You are comfortable with technology and understand the important role that data plays in providing insights that can help address our most intractable social challenges. Finally, you pursue all tasks with energy and drive, never giving up even in the face of obstacles and setbacks.

Your Responsibilities (include, but are not limited to):

  • Establish and build relationships with up to 200 students (via phone, video chat, text messaging, email, and social media), helping them navigate the transition from high school to college and ensuring they are on track to graduate from college.
  • Maintain consistent contact with assigned students by scheduling regular virtual coaching sessions to deliver personalized, motivating, and actionable coaching consistent with Beyond 12’s coaching curriculum.
  • Consistently collect, record, and interpret student data to guide coaching conversations.
  • Provide perspective on college life and act as a facilitator, guiding students to the appropriate campus resources and helping them understand the commitment necessary to succeed.
  • Work with students to identify and overcome the obstacles that may prevent them from succeeding.
  • Invoke safety for students during virtual coaching interactions, actively listening and asking powerful questions that get at the core of a student’s needs.

Requirements

  • Deep commitment to Beyond 12’s mission, vision, and core values: Collaboration, Excellence, Innovation, Knowledge, Respect, and Trust.
  • Experience working with students from under-resourced communities and those who are the first in their families to attend college, strongly preferred.
  • Results oriented and self directed with excellent organizational and time-management skills.
  • Ability to use information and data to draw insightful conclusions and consistently identify when additional information is needed.
  • Excellent interpersonal, oral, and written communication skills.
  • Strong desire to learn about education technology and college success best practices, and incorporate those lessons into the work.
  • Bachelor's degree earned from an accredited college or university (degree earned since 2015 strongly preferred) with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale; demonstrated leadership and achievement in academic, extracurricular, volunteer or professional settings is a plus.
  • Familiarity with Microsoft Office and a good grasp of web and mobile communication tools.
