One Million Degrees (OMD)— a Chicago nonprofit organization that empowers low-income, highly motivated community college students to succeed in school, in work, and in life—is now accepting applications for its volunteer coaches. OMD Coaches work with scholars in a one-on-one and small group setting to provide professional and personal support throughout the academic year, while helping to broaden scholars’ horizons of career aspirations and possibilities. Coaches give just a few hours each month and make a profound difference in the lives of OMD Scholars. Coaching sessions take place on community college campuses, including Kennedy King and Olive- Harvey Colleges on the Chicago South Side. Currenlty, 24 University of Chicago College Alumni serve as coaches. Learn more about coaching and apply here.
