Sometimes the best leaders are those closest to the issue.
That is the theory behind the Virginia College Advising Corps (VCAC). The VCAC places recent college graduates into high schools to serve as full-time advisers for two years.
While the program serves recent graduates by giving them job experience, the main goal is for the advisers to become mentors who positively affect students.
Moving from high school to college requires dedication and many steps: taking preparatory tests, filling out college and financial-aid applications, and searching for scholarships. Often students get bogged down and stop trying.
That’s where the VCAC mentors come in.
