This hire will support Summer Search participants through the summer after their high school graduation and the first year of their post-secondary pathway, whether college, a vocational track, a gap year program, or joining the military or workforce. The Post-Secondary Program Coordinator plays a central role in our site launching the Post-Secondary Program Redesign, which aims to better support Summer Search participants in transitioning and persisting through their post-secondary pathway after high school. This is a unique opportunity to help shape future post-secondary programming for our Seattle site.
WHAT YOU’LL DO
Build relationships and provide 1:1 mentoring and advising to a caseload of high school graduates (class of 2021) and current post-secondary participants.
WORK HOURS AND LOCATION
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this position will be remote until further notice, with potential for limited working days in the office if desired in order to allow for the safest environment for our staff. Once we have returned to working in-person, this position will be based out of the Seattle office in Tukwila. Work hours are Mon-Fri 10am-6pm with occasional weekend and evening special events.
About SUMMER SEARCH
While young people from low-income communities – who are disproportionately young people of color – face systemic inequities in school, in the workforce, and in life, they possess unique strengths, resilience and tremendous potential. When provided with support and resources, these young people fulfill their potential and achieve success in school, work and life.
Through a combination of mentoring and transformative experiences, Summer Search supports young people to successfully transition from adolescence into adulthood. We aim to unleash the potential of our young people while also building a toolkit for navigating and challenging systemic barriers to higher education and career opportunities.
