Job Title: AmeriCorps Student Success Coach - High School (4)

Faribault Public Schools is posting this for these positions in the Faribault High School. However, the hiring is done by the Minnesota Allance With Youth. Do NOT apply through the FPS system; instead, apply through:


As an AmeriCorps Promise Fellow with Minnesota Alliance With Youth, you will join a statewide cohort of Promise Fellows supporting 6th - 12th-grade students. You will train alongside other individuals that have answered the call to serve, providing direct support for up to 30 students during the school year (January 16th - May 31st, with the option of extending through the summer). Promise Fellows support students in the areas of:

  • Attendance: Provide attendance coaching, call home if students miss class, and increase student attendance by creating a caring adult relationship.
  • Engagement: Provide avenues for increased youth engagement in school and the broader community by coordinating programs like lunchtime mentoring, book clubs, promoting youth leadership development, and connecting youth with civic opportunities.
  • Course Performance: Help students set academic goals and provide before, in, and after school educational support for individuals and small groups as students work towards their goals.

AmeriCorps Promise Fellows spend a school year helping a small group of Minnesota students in grades 6 to 12 get the education they need to start off strong in life. Much more than a tutor, AmeriCorps Promise Fellows use the proven Promise Fellow Model for youth support to provide one-on-one support for students who are struggling in school. As a Promise Fellow, you will foster your student's unique talents, honor their voices, and help them prepare for graduation and beyond.

Where you SERVE:

Promise Fellows serve students directly in a school for the duration of their service. Faribault is hosting four (4) Promise Fellow positions for the second semester of the 2023-24 school year!


  • Close the opportunity gap . Minnesota has some of the largest educational disparities in the nation. As part of your service, you will be trained on equity-focused topics that enrich your understanding of and ability to support middle and high school students in Minnesota. As a Promise Fellow, you will learn how to identify and understand the systems that affect students in Minnesota-and identify and enact solutions to the changes that your students are facing.

    Amplify youth voice. You will be trained by Minnesota Alliance With Youth staff and local experts in Motivational Interviewing and WOOP (Wish, Outcome, Obstacle, Plan) goal-setting practices, which strengthen young people's autonomy and empowers them to create change.
  • Deepen self-awareness. During your AmeriCorps service, you will be able to explore and clarify your unique strengths and interests and how to use those to meet your personal and professional goals.
  • Practice leadership. As a Promise Fellow, you will have the chance to develop and exercise lifelong leadership skills that will make you a powerful force for good.


  • AmeriCorps Living Stipend: $1,066.67 twice per month for 35hrs/week, $800 twice per month for 25hrs/week, and $600 twice per month for 18hrs/week
  • AmeriCorps Education Award : $2,626.26 Education Award upon successful completion of service. This award can be used toward federally qualifying student loans (federal student financial aid loans, not including ParentPlus loans) or future qualified post-secondary education. ($1,824.07 ed award for 25hrs/week, $1,459.26 for 18hrs/week)
  • Benefits : 5-20 Flex days (must be approved by Alliance and Host Site), Health and dental insurance, qualified student loan forbearance, qualified child care assistance, AmeriCoach life coach, TAP transportation card (metro area), support applying for SNAP benefits.
