Near-peer coaches set our model apart.

For over 20 years, College Possible has refined our model of near-peer coaching using research-based curriculum. We are a national leader in college success programming.

Near-peer coaches

Recent college graduates serve as coaches to College Possible students. Our coaches are young, passionate and dedicated recent college graduates serving as AmeriCorps members. They offer advice, mentoring and even friendship to students to help guide them to college graduation.

6+ years of support

Our model starts in a student’s junior year of high school and continues on to college. We connect students with our near-peer coaches to help them learn to navigate the often complex world of college preparation and persistence.
