Job Description

The Nevada Center for Excellence in Disabilities (NCED) seeks student employees to work as an educational coach for the Path to Independence program- a two-year program where students with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) get to go to college and be a part of the Wolf Pack. Educational coaches accompany our students to class and help them to succeed and fit in. Duties include, but aren’t limited to: Going to class with the student, taking notes, helping students communicate with peers and instructors, helping students understand social cues, reading with student outside of class to ensure understanding of material, help with homework. Approximately 5-10 hours a week depending on how many classes they take on.

Required Qualifications

Because educational coaches accompany students to class, we have certain times that they must be available. Ideally educational coaches would also be taking the course that the student is in. However, that isn’t always possible. Schedules are still being finalized and nothing is set in stone quite yet. You can contact Riley Fitzgerald at or 682-9074 for more details.

Preferred Qualifications

Professional or personal experience with people with disabilities.
