College & Career Bridge for All increases postsecondary enrollment by hiring and training college students to provide meaningful advising to graduating seniors through the postsecondary planning, financial aid, and matriculation processes. The near-peer Bridge Coach model is cost-effective, has demonstrated an impact on postsecondary enrollment, and provides paid, professional work experience to college students. Launched in 2016 in collaboration with New York City Public Schools, College & Career Bridge for All is housed in the CUNY Office of K16 Initiatives College & Career Advising Programs.

In 2020, we scaled our program to ensure that all students in the NYCDOE graduating class have access to a near-peer Bridge Coach to support them on their postsecondary journey. As a city-wide program, we serve more than 50,000 students annually as they graduate from the NYCDOE. Our Coaches work from June – September to support an average of 250 students. Coaches meet weekly in teams for supervision and professional development sessions. Coaches earn $20 per hour, and up to $5,000 by the end of the program. 

Deadline March 11. Learn more here
