Trainer - Posse Virtual Program

The role of the Posse virtual trainer is to help recruit, train, and support Posse Scholars. The virtual model will offer partnering colleges and universities flexibility in the geographic make-up of their Posses. Virtual Posses can be comprised of students from different cities across the United States. Alternatively, colleges and universities can choose to recruit students exclusively from select cities in a specific state. During recruitment, trainers assist with outreach to high schools and community-based organizations. Trainers also interview candidates and guide them through the college application process. Once the Posse Scholars are selected, trainers work closely with them beginning in their senior year of high school and continuing to their graduation from college. In Pre-Collegiate Training, trainers facilitate weekly virtual workshops for Posse Scholars that focus on leadership, cross-cultural communication, team-building, and academic excellence. To support the Campus Program, trainers will schedule four visits to partner campuses a year to meet with Posse Scholars individually and as a group. Some visits may be virtual and others may be in person. Trainers track Scholars’ academic progress and help develop strategies to address any potential retention issues. Additionally, trainers work closely with Posse mentors (usually college faculty/staff members) to ensure that Posse Scholars on campus receive the support they need. Trainers report to the Program Director and work in close collaboration with co-trainers.
