College Access and Equity Coordinator, 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 College Access and Equity Coordinator is responsible for implementing programming in partnership with School District of Philadelphia principals, administrators and staff. This school-based position coordinates and delivers rigorous academic enrichment, college-readiness and career development activities to middle and high school students. Additionally, this role is a critical lever in the organization’s efforts to support middle school students of color in accessing criteria-based secondary school. The position maintains hours similar to school-based staff, reporting Monday through Friday, with occasional weekend hours.
