As an undergraduate and dual Master's degree student, Joe Tavares studied at six universities in five countries. It's fitting that today, Joe advises high school students from around the world who seek to do the same thing he did – learn, grow and form life-long friendships within university settings outside of their home country. Joe is currently a high school counselor at Jakarta Intercultural School (JIS), the largest private school in Indonesia. Prior to JIS, he worked as a high school counselor in Egypt and Brazil. Before working in a school setting, Joe published a college guidebook – the first of its kind – for students who would be first in their family to go to college. Supporting the higher education aspirations of traditionally underserved students is a personal and professional passion of Joe's, and each summer he volunteers with U.S.-based college access organization College Summit to boost the college enrollment of high school students in low-income districts. In July 2017, Joe began a three-year term of service on the Executive Board of International ACAC, and he currently serves as the organization's Chair of Inclusion, Access, and Success.
