Virtual College Counseling Platform Launched for Native American Students
The counseling platform will connect with about 600 leaders of Native American tribes, as only 17 percent of Native Americans are able to continue their education after high school.
Tribal leader Dino Beltran, who is vice chair of the Koi Nation, has invited myKlovr to introduce its counseling platform to leaders of 22 tribes participating in The United Pomo Nations Council meeting later this month.
“At myKlovr we leverage the power of technology to increase every student’s chances of educational success regardless of background. Native American communities have faced limited access to college education, which can negatively affect life opportunities, and we wanted to take action in a more positive direction.” Gustavo G. Dolfino, founder and CEO of myKlovr, said.
“With limited human resources at the disposal of Native American students, initiatives undertaken by a number of NGOs, state and federal institutions are falling short. We aim to fill this vacuum with our cutting-edge technology solution,” he added.
To support a stronger college-planning process for Natives, the counseling platform uses artificial intelligence and data analytics to provide an individual action plan and personalized guidance to private college-bound students.
