YPIE College Advisor (Part Time)

A YPIE College Advisor provides comprehensive college access and enrollment services to juniors and seniors in the YPIE programs that will result in student enrollment, persistence, and completion at a 4-year college.   YPIE College Advisors:

  • Collaborate with administrators and staff from assigned Yonkers high schools to identify, recruit, and onboard eligible YPIE students.

  • Provide individualized grade level college guidance to each assigned junior YPIE student including assessing each student’s college aspirations and goals, creation of appropriate/good fit college lists, and supporting students through the college essay process. 

  • Provide grade level college guidance to each assigned senior YPIE student including assistance completing and submitting college applications, assistance completing FAFSA/TAP/CSS documents and scholarship applications, and analysis of final school acceptances and financial aid packages to guide students to make college commitments.
