Make It Happen!
 is a college readiness program that helps multilingual students build competitive academic profiles for college admission and financial aid. Make It Happen! AmeriCorps Site Coordinators help students take challenging classes, improve their standardized test scores, develop competitive college applications, and engage in leadership, community service, and professional development opportunities. To provide academic and language acquisition support, MIH! pairs English Language Learners in grades 9-12 with volunteer academic coaches. Volunteer academic coaches work with students from countries all over the globe.

Become an Academic Coach!

We are looking for volunteer academic coaches who have a genuine desire to motivate students to excel academically. Empower youth by setting high expectations, helping them succeed in school, and modeling success!

Coaches meet with students for a minimum of 1-2 hours per week for at least one academic semester (September to January or January to May). Coaches meet with students at one of our three high school academic centers, typically after school hours Monday through Friday.

To apply to volunteer, fill out our online application and we will contact you.  Thank you!
