Who are CCR Advisors?

First-generation college students rely on numerous mentors on their pathways to college. In a recent survey we conducted, most cited teachers, coaches, community members and others as critical sounding boards.

Guidance counselors are rarely mentioned—because they’re frequently too overwhelmed to focus on students in a position to pursue a college degree.

That’s where you come in. A CCR Advisor™️ can be anyone who is passionate about a student’s success. Our training and tools empower you to support our students as they address challenges such as admission requirements, financial aid applications, and ways of paying for college.

“I like to think of the Essential Skills as a muscle. If you want to grow or strengthen any muscle in your body, you have to work at it, you have to exercise it. There’s no better way to do that than through a CCR Training.”

– Greg Muccio, ‎Director Talent Acquisition, ‎Southwest Airlines

How Training Works

The course starts with a live 30-minute opening session that provides examples of how corporations are helping underserved students become college and career ready, while strengthening their own future workforce pipeline. Following session one, participants engage in two pre-recorded 30-minute lessons that provide specific strategies to support students and to build a culture that is diverse and inclusive while meeting bottomline goals.

The 30-minute live closing brings it all together and melds what participants learn into a plan to not only help students but also prepare their corporation for the future. Newly minted CCR Advisors leave with case studies, planning tools and other resources to meet ongoing challenges.

Participants who complete the training receive a certificate from the University of Vermont. While the CCR Advisor training costs $1,500 per person, it’s free for CFES partners.
