Spark Program Coordinator, Phila. Education Fund – Sep 27

Posted by Philadelphia Education Fund on September 7, 2021

Through our College Access Program, Philadelphia Scholars Scholarship Program, Philadelphia Postsecondary Success Program, and the McKinney Center for STEM Education, we provide college advising and college / career exposure for students in low graduation-rate, public high schools, financial support and persistence programming for first-generation college students, professional development for 1,200 teachers annually, and consulting to schools.

The Philadelphia Education Fund seeks a Program Coordinator to recruit, train, support and develop a community of volunteers for our newest program, Spark Philadelphia.

Spark has a unique approach to fostering student development through engaging middle school students at a pivotal time of growth and transition. This program model was designed based on research showing the importance of social and emotional skills, the value of mentorship, and the supports students need navigating critical academic transitions. Our objective is to build students’ individual skills and social capital through a hands-on career project in the context of a positive relationship. Through career exploration workshops, workplace-based mentorship, and high school transition resources, students develop skills and build relationships to help them succeed.

Reporting directly to the Program Manager (PM) or Program Director (PD), the Program Coordinator will implement Spark’s middle grades programming for their assigned partner schools. Coordinators should expect to spend at least 80% of their time directly on-site at their respective partner schools.

As a Program Coordinator, you will be critical to Spark’s success as you are the face of Spark within schools and the primary relationship manager for our students and their families.
