Career Navigator and Internship Coordinator (Temporary), Summer Search
Posted by Summer Search Philadelphia on March 23, 2021
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.
The temporary Career Navigator and Internship Coordinator will oversee workforce development projects in conjunction with both the development and post-secondary departments of Summer Search Philadelphia. The primary focus will be to source relevant and age/industry-appropriate internship and job opportunities, establish partnerships with corporations and organizations providing such opportunities, provide training to our program participants with regard to preparation and placement in such opportunities, and provide support and follow-up throughout the initial months or duration of their internship/job experience.
This temporary position will run through the rest of the 2021 calendar year, with potential opportunity to extend beyond that.
