STUDENT NAVIGATOR NETWORK

WHAT THE STUDENT NAVIGATOR NETWORK IS

As the pandemic has unfolded and colleges and universities around the country have shifted their operations, thousands of students are facing exacerbated financial, academic, and personal crises.

To help students during this critical time, we partnered with Rise to collaboratively launch our Student Navigator Network, a one-on-one online student referral service that helps students.

This innovative program employs and trains Student Navigators to help their peers access the resources available to them, reducing the stigma often associated with seeking assistance.

STUDENT NAVIGATORS HELP THEIR PEERS:

  • Apply for emergency financial assistance

  • Find and access local and communal support

  • Navigate public benefits

  • Receive timely information on policies, programs, and services

HOW THE STUDENT NAVIGATOR NETWORK WORKS

  • Student fills out this form to report what types of assistance they need, including: food, technology devices, unemployment insurance, WiFi, housing/rental assistance, healthcare, transportation, moving, mental health, utility assistance, financial grants/loans, work study assistance, and financial aid.

  • Trained Student Navigator replies to student via email with resource referrals and customized forms of requested support
