EVSC Looking for College Grads to Volunteer to Help Parents


The Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation’s Early College High School is now seeking individuals who have graduated from college to volunteer for the Early College Coaching Series (ECCS). One of the EVSC’s newest innovative school models, Early College High School opened its doors on Aug. 11 to 84 freshman high school students from the EVSC’s five high schools.

The University of Evansville is partnering with the EVSC in this quest for college coaches. The UE Alumni Association and the UE African American Alumni Association is arranging for alumni to serve as college coaches to the parents of early college students. The coaches (college alumni) will work with the families (parents, guardians, advocates) of early college students. Coaches will provide parents with consistent support and guidance by building trust, establishing a relationship, listening, and investing their time to help parents navigate the complexities of college.

Anyone who would like to be a part of this pioneering effort to transform the college going experience, should complete the ECCS Application Form online today.
