Design an outreach plan to engage Global Citizen Year alumni who want to be a part of the Admissions selection team (i.e. the awesome alums that interview prospective fellows)
Help organize and lead alumni selection team onboarding trainings, create training materials for selection team, assess the efficacy of current application and interview questions with focus groups, research metrics to assess whether application and interview questions match GCY learning outcomes
Develop short video clips to highlight and walk through each step of the application process (including videos explaining application questions, preparing prospective applicants to be successful in the interview, walking applicants through each application stage including FAQs for Financial Aid and Medical, etc.).
Media production tasks will include reaching out and recruiting alumni to be in videos, coordinating the execution of filming and editing videos (eg. iMovie), writing content for videos, and facilitating virtual focus group sessions
Producing podcasts that highlight a Global Citizen Year
Engage in focus group research with selection team members to determine the learning outcomes that each application and interview question measures (how are the questions being interpreted by 18 year olds, how are they being interpreted by selection team members)
Review applications and interview responses of 2017, 2018, and 2019 alumni that had “transformative experiences” to see if any trends emerge
Begin evaluation process of current application and interview rubrics for admissions
