Post-Secondary Program Coordinator, Transition Program, Summer Search
Posted by Summer Search Philadelphia on December 6, 2022
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.
Summer Search Philadelphia is seeking a Post-Secondary Program Coordinator to advise program participants as they plan for, transition into, and progress through their first year of their chosen post-secondary pathway, whether college, a vocational track, a gap year program, or joining the military or workforce. The Post-Secondary Program Coordinator is a dynamic and exciting role that plays a central role in supporting participants in transitioning into their post-secondary path by developing and implementing plans that are specific to each cohorts needs and strengths.
Reporting to the Executive Director in Philadelphia, this hire will join a team of knowledgeable youth development professionals across the national network with a passion for innovation, equity, professional growth, and wellbeing.
The Post-Secondary Program Coordinator will build relationships with and provide direct, 1:1 support to a caseload of 40 – 60 participants throughout the junior and senior year of high school through the end of their 1st year of post-secondary.
