College Success Advisor, Heights Philadelphia

About Heights Philadelphia:
Led by respected and veteran educational leaders from Philadelphia Futures and Steppingstone Scholars, Heights Philadelphia 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 Success Advisor supports a cohort of college students as they navigate the system of higher education. This includes troubleshooting financial issues, coaching students on academic challenges and connecting them to opportunities related to college and career success. The College Success Advisor also supports programming and events managed by the College Success Team and collaborates as needed with other departments serving students across the organization.
