Job Description:

Scholar Coaches are at the root of our growth as an organization and our program's greatest resource. Join today and help make a difference in the lives of students as a

STEM Scholar Coach.

Who We Are

Schuler is a private, non-profit college access program. We currently serve over 800 high school and college Scholars in partnership with 15 high schools spread throughout Chicagoland and one location in Milwaukee.

What Our Goal Is

The Schuler Scholar Program equips high-achieving and underrepresented students to gain access to and succeed at highly selective colleges and beyond.

What Makes Us A Unique College Access Program

  • Holistic approach- academic enrichment and tutoring, college counseling, personal development and leadership, mentoring, and cultural awareness
  • Level of support- working closely with each individual student
  • Length of program- 4 years of HS, into and throughout college, and beyond

    What A Day in the Life of a STEM Scholar Coach Is Like

    The Schuler Scholar Program seeks recent college grads to serve as STEM Scholar Coaches (SCs). STEM SCs work closely with Scholars at Cristo Rey St. Martin College , one of our partner high schools in Waukegan, IL, and are responsible for delivering Schuler programs and serve as mentors. Coaches work directly with Scholars in one-on-one and in group settings. Candidates should be passionate about working with students from diverse backgrounds, including first generation college students. The qualified candidate will display strong academic achievement, be highly organized, possess strong leadership and interpersonal skills and effectively work independently as well as in teams.

    • Primary:
      • Build relationships with Scholars and staff at your partner school site
      • Collaborate with school team and other Schuler staff to support development and delivery of Schuler programming
      • Serve as an academic coach for a caseload of approximately 10-15 Scholars
      • Facilitate 1:1 Schuler program sessions, including STEM coaching and academic tutoring
      • Facilitate large group after school sessions that focus on academic success and personal development
      • Monitor and track Scholar progress to ensure that Scholars receive appropriate support
      • Secondary:
        • Plan and chaperone Scholars on cultural exposures (field trips)
        • Take on additional responsibilities as required by various Project Coordinator positions (ex: Scholar Selection Coordinator, Camp Coordinator, Communications Coordinator, Summer College Programs Coordinator, and more)
        • Chaperone up to week-long college visits
        • Plan and facilitate a range of academic summer programs
        • Participate in other Schuler activities, projects and processes as needed by your school.
          Every year we seek STEM SC candidates who can speak Spanish. Because a significant portion of our Scholars come from Spanish speaking families, it is critical to have Spanish Coordinators to assist in both oral and written Spanish communication.

          STEM SCs receive program specific training throughout the school year. Schuler ensures that STEM SCs feel prepared, confident and supported while working with students and facilitating programs. STEM SCs can also take advantage of various professional development opportunities.

          What Core Competencies Make A Scholar Coach Successful
          • Coaching and Mentoring
          • Listening
          • Planning and Organizing
          • Development and Continual Learning

            What We Offer
