    Propel Is Hiring!

    A college degree can be a way out of poverty, but for those 36% of students experiencing hunger and homelessness, it is a long road to graduation. At UMKC, the Department of Psychology and Propel Program are partnering with community organizations that provide social services to low-income residents and students. We are currently hiring two VISTA Corps members to identify community resources, help make those resources available to college students, and educate UMKC staff about the needs of underserved students. Be part of the solution. This is urgent work. Join our team. Apply Today
