College Coaches

Why Join College Coaches?

  • College Coaches is the only school based Community Service program for high school students, so it provides a completely unique opportunity to serve students at this particular age level (other programs serve elementary school ages).
  • College Coaches is the only Community Service program that can provide volunteers with hands-on classroom experience. So many Whitties are interested in education reform, TFA, and other post-graduate education goals. Get a jump on the rest of your peers with real, tangible experiences -- they speak volumes. 
  • As a very young program (established in 2010), our College Coaches are doing ground-breaking work in Whitman Community Service every day. For example, this fall, Whitman students will be creating a new partnership with the incredible educators and students of Lincoln Alternative High School! (Read more about Lincoln and its revolutionary approach to a generally at-risk population of students here).
  • College Coaches strive to be the perfect combination of mentor and tutor, giving students motivation to achieve their dreams and the tools to help them get there.
