Posted by Philadelphia Education Fund on December 5, 2023
Philadelphia Education Fund’s (PEF) mission is to drive exceptional outcomes for all students by developing great teachers and building paths to college and career success. Founded in 1985, today PEF is the city’s most comprehensive, full-service education organization, working tirelessly to expand and improve educational opportunities available to local youth. PEF envisions a Philadelphia where all young people have the skills, knowledge, opportunity, and access to the resources they need to succeed in college and careers.
A key aspect of PEF’s work is ensuring that every high school student in Philadelphia is supported in understanding and pursuing their options for a postsecondary academic journey, anchored in college, and supported through workplace and career exposure. To support in this effort, PEF operates a diverse portfolio of offerings targeting students (College Access Program, PhillyGoes2College, Spark Philadelphia, Philadelphia Scholars Last Dollar Scholarship, Fostering College Readiness), teachers (McKinney Center for STEM Education, the Philadelphia Postsecondary Success Program), and the community (Education First Compact, Philadelphia STEM Ecosystem). In 2017, PEF launched an education consulting practice that supports schools and nonprofits deepening student college and STEM related outcomes.
The Philadelphia Education Fund seeks a Special Assistant to support the President and CEO in the design, development and implementation of special projects intended to help deepen PEF’s work as an education thought leader locally, regionally, and nationally and inform the design of PEF’s programs to strengthen impact and outcomes. This role will also be a liaison with PEF’s Board of Trustees.
