College Possible is a growing nonprofit coaching students from low-income backgrounds to and through college to break the cycle of poverty and empower the next generation of leaders. Our model earns top-of-field results: a 2011 Harvard study found that the program more than doubles a student's chance of enrolling in a four-year college, and our students are four times more likely to become college graduates than their low-income peers. College Possible has a budget of nearly $20 million, more than 110 full-time employees and more than 270 AmeriCorps and VISTA service members. During the 2017-2018 school year, we will reach an estimated 30,000 students in all 50 states, at more than 90 partner high schools and at more than 350 colleges. 

College Possible is committed to equity, diversity and inclusion, and seeks to build a diverse workforce to create impact in partnership with the communities we serve.  We welcome a diverse pool of qualified applicants.  For each of its positions, College Possible is mindful about what best serves our students, and seeks to hire staff with relevant experience, skills and aptitude, and a commitment to the power of education.

Headquartered in Saint Paul, Minnesota, College Possible also operates in Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Portland, Oregon; Omaha, Nebraska; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Chicago, Illinois. We're joining forces with colleges to achieve a transformational impact: by 2021, we will partner with 400 colleges to reach 50,000 students.
