Make a difference while launching your career! Find your passion, gain skills, and build a brighter future for Michiganders while earning a living stipend and education award (plus other benefits like health coverage!). We're glad you're here. Let's find a role for you with MCAN.
Michigan College Access Network offers multiple AmeriCorps opportunities for individuals to serve their community and improve educational equity in our state. All service opportunities include a living stipend, healthcare coverage, childcare coverage, and a post-service education award to fund further education or help pay off student loans. Members also participate in valuable professional development and networking opportunities to help launch your career.
MCAN hosts virtual information sessions where you can learn more about our AmeriCorps service opportunities. Staff from AdviseMI, College Completion Corps, and MI ECHO programs share program details, benefits of AmeriCorps service, and current opportunities to serve.
Stay tuned for upcoming sessions!
College Completion Corps
MCAN's College Completion Corps trains and places 31 AmeriCorps members on partner college campuses across Michigan. As a Completion Coach, each full-time member serves a campus-defined cohort of 100-150 students who are first-generation, low-income, and/or students of color, with a focus on college persistence and completion.
AdviseMI places recent college graduates in selected high schools across Michigan, particularly high schools that are located in communities with low college-going rates and low adult educational attainment rates, to serve as college advisers. Serving alongside high school counselors and other school professionals, advisers support students as they make the transition from high school to postsecondary education.
MCAN employs AmeriCorps VISTAs to support a variety of statewide college access work. Individuals interested in VISTA opportunities with MCAN should email their resume to Jenny McArdle, director of service strategy.
