Promise Corps College & Career Ambassadors

Promise Corps College and Career Ambassadors

Promise Corps College and Career Ambassadors (CCAs) will be placed in one of four high schools in Philadelphia’s Promise Zone. The high schools are West Philadelphia, Overbrook, High School of the Future, and Sayre High School.  CCAs will work with high school students and families to ensure that they graduate from high school with strong skill sets, and develop awareness of paths and challenges related to postsecondary opportunities, while working with students to help them develop long-term plans leading to postsecondary entry. CCAs will work with school teachers, administrators, and guidance counselors to identify and recruit students who need additional support.

All members are expected to serve 7:30am-4:30pm with a 30 minute lunch break Monday-Friday while in school service with students. On Professional Development days members serve 8:30am-5:00pm. While a transpass is provided to members to freely travel in Philadelphia proper, members must upgrade their transpass to an alternate zone as needed and are still expected to serve from 7:30am – 4:30pm each day.
