Looking to support Posse Scholars?

Donate Now

Posse is always looking for volunteers. If you are excited about what we do and want to get involved, we offer different volunteer opportunities for people interested in working directly with Scholars or supporting general operations at the organization.

Writing Coach (Winter)

Writing coaches work with Posse Scholars during their senior year of high school to help them transition from high school- to college-level writing during the Pre-Collegiate Training Program. Individuals with experience teaching writing and working with young people are preferred.

Resume Coach (Spring)

Each spring, resume coaches provide one-on-one support to approximately 10 Scholars, aided by Posse’s Career Program managers.

Dynamic Assessment Process Observer (Fall)

Help us recruit new Scholars during the fall Dynamic Assessment Process.

Career Coach (Year-round)

Each year our Career Program seeks industry-leading professionals to serve as volunteer coaches to Scholars and alumni as they go on to secure competitive and career-enhancing internships, fellowships, jobs and graduate/professional school opportunities. Coaching includes job shadowing, support with fellowship and graduate school applications, conversational meetings over coffee or lunch, connect Scholar/s to resources, etc.

General Volunteer Support (Year-round)

Posse is always seeking individuals willing to provide general support for our fundraising, career and day-to-day operations.
