One thing you may want to consider is getting a master's degree in school counseling -- this degree is often required to work in the kind of position it sounds like you are interested in and will show your commitment to the field.

What a wonderful advocate to be....Consider pulling job opportunities for a guidance counselor or advisor to get a better understanding of the role. Possibly schedule a discussion with your own advisor / guidance counselor for insight on what the expectations of the position. Then begin your quest for the necessary in school education to pursue the job. Good Luck!
