Descrição

About The Posse Foundation:

The Posse Foundation is a nationally recognized youth leadership development and college access program that identifies, recruits, and trains diverse teams—Posses—of public high school students and sends them to top colleges and universities. To date, more than 13,000 Posse Scholars have been accepted into top-tier institutions of higher education throughout the country. Since 1989, over $2 billion in full-tuition leadership scholarships have been awarded from Posse’s college and university partners and Posse Scholars have been agents of positive change on their campuses.

Posse’s unique and carefully structured, three-month selection process identifies candidates using criteria beyond academic achievement, including leadership talent, desire to succeed and ability to work constructively with people from diverse backgrounds. Posse’s high school through college programming makes it one of the most comprehensive programs of its kind in the nation.

Job Description:


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 will schedule four visits to partner campuses annually to meet with Posse Scholars individually and as a group. 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 that Posse Scholars on campus receive the support they need. The trainer will report to the Program Director, Posse Arts Program work in close collaboration with other staff.
