Advise TX College Advising Corps launched in 2010-2011 and works to increase the number of low-income, first-generation college, and underrepresented high school students who enter and complete a postsecondary education.
The program model utilizes near-peer advisers by placing well-trained recent college graduates from four Texas partner institutions of higher education as full-time college advisers in high schools with historically low college-going rates. Through the Corporation for National and Community Service and the OneStar Foundation, advisers serve one to two years as full-time AmeriCorps members and provide one-on-one assistance to students to match their academic and career goals to the best postsecondary options that will help them achieve their dream.
