The Carolina College Advising Corps helps low-income, first-generation, and underrepresented students find their way to college. By placing recent UNC-Chapel Hill graduates as advisers in high schools across North Carolina, the Corps helps students plan their college searches, complete admissions and financial-aid applications, and enroll at schools that will serve them well. The Advising Corps is not currently represented in Caswell or Lenoir Counties. Is there a local interest in this type of support?
