College Access and Equity Advisor, Heights Philadelphia

Posted by Heights Philadelphia on May 16, 2023

About Heights Philadelphia:

Led by respected and veteran educational leaders from Philadelphia Futures and Steppingstone Scholars, Heights is rooted in the bold vision that “all Philadelphia students graduate high school and achieve economic mobility through college and workforce success.” Heights’ work reflects a deep and abiding commitment to break the cycle of generational poverty, which has long challenged the City of Philadelphia, connecting students –especially Black, Latino, and first-generation scholars – with a network of people who believe, and invest in, their talents. Beginning in middle school, students receive access to academic, workforce, and college support to propel economic mobility. Serving more than 3,000 students in Philadelphia, Heights works with students to provide not only programming including one-on-one advising, academic enrichment, internship opportunities, and financial support – but also pathways to success through every step of their lives.

About this Role: 

The Access and Equity Advisor will be responsible for helping a cohort of students throughout their middle school and/or high school experience. This position provides individual advising and conversations, as well as supporting them through making positive academic and extracurricular decisions. The Access and Equity Advisors will also work closely with peers to support student recruitment into dual enrollment, internship and summer opportunities provided by the organization. This is a Monday through Friday position with occasional weekend hours and will be based at partner middle and/or high schools.
