About AmeriCorps:

AmeriCorps is a national community service program that gives people an opportunity to apply their skills and ideals towards helping others and meeting critical needs in the community. The AmeriCorps Advocates of Mentoring is an AmeriCorps Program where members serve mentoring programs across Massachusetts to strengthen their capacity to run robust mentorship programs.

Overview of Host Organization: Coaching4Change

Coaching4Change (C4C) mobilizes college students to serve low-income K-12 school districts, expands pathways for student success and builds a pipeline of future educators. We do this by recruiting, training, and placing local, talented, and diverse college mentors to support school improvement initiatives aimed at increasing student engagement and improving school culture and climate. Over 60% of our college mentors identify as people of color, because we know representation in schools matters. Professional educators supervise and coach the college students who then mentor the middle school students, creating a cross-age mentoring model tha promotes growth opportunities for all participants.

Position Description

C4C is looking for an AmeriCorps Advocate of Mentoring (AMA) to support our efforts to grow and execute a meaningful mentorship experience for our college students and their mentees. The AMA will be a thought-partner and leader in three key priority areas:

  • Mentor Recruitment: AMA will recruit, train, and support our brand ambassadors by creating a playbook that includes resources and best practices. Brand ambassadors are current college mentors who take on additional responsibilities to spread awareness and recruit college students to join C4C on their campus.
  • Communications & Social Media: AMA will work with our Communications Team to highlight the unique stories of our participants while elevating C4C’s brand through thoughtful use of social media. AMA will also plan and execute a storytelling campaign that features our college mentors and alumni.
  • Community of Practice: Working with the Program Team, AMA will support a mentor community of practice that includes training and fellowship activities. The AMA will create resources centered on providing culturally-relevant practices, supports, and professional development. The AMA will play a critical role in helping mentors reflect on, contextualize, and share their mentor experiences.

The AMA will be embedded into all aspects of our work including the opportunity to support/attend site visits, mentor & coach trainings, team retreats, fellowship events, and strategy meetings. The AMA also has the opportunity to explore additional interests that align within the scope of work.
