MAPS provided Natalie with multiple career opportunities that landed her first full-time job and a path to matriculate to prestigious graduate program. We provide career opportunities, but it is up to individuals to take advantage of our programs. Natalie did!
She came in as an intern and hired as a coordinator. She then left MAPS to work at a full-time position, and now, she is in graduate school. MAPS is proud of Natalie.

“MAPS not only prepared me for a career in the field of Education and nonprofit work, it also provided me with a support system throughout the job hunt, resume and job interview assistance, networking opportunities, and many memories!”
“Interning at MAPS 4 College allowed me to work with high school students involved in the College Preparatory Mentoring Program and gain hands-on nonprofit leadership and administration experience, which includes writing and overseeing grants, fundraising, and public relations.”
“As a MAPS intern, I have been given many responsibilities and challenges that have taught me so much in such a short time! This non-profit has so many programs, it is definitely unlike any other agency I have been involved with. It not only focuses on teens and getting them into college, but it is a non-profit that concentrates on the person as a whole; succeeding in life is more than just getting into the brand name college, it is about having the necessary communication, leadership, and relationship skills needed to reach success.”
“At MAPS, I was the Program Coordinator and Executive Director Assistant; my job duties consisted of assisting students throughout the college application process, presenting at educational conferences and events, performing administrative duties, and more. All of these responsibilities prepared me for my position today–an Online Student Advisor at ICDC College. As a Student Advisor, I provide academic counseling to students pursuing a certificate, diploma, or Associate’s Degree within the various programs offered. MAPS not only prepared me for a career in the field of Education and nonprofit work, it also provided me with a support system throughout the job hunt, resume and job interview assistance, networking opportunities, and many memories! I have personally gained more skills dealing with administration and how to start a non-profit from the bottom up.”
