Who We Are and What We Do
The union of Philadelphia Futures and Steppingstone Scholars creates one of the most dynamic, expansive, and trusted educational nonprofits in the City of Philadelphia. Our bold new vision is that “all Philadelphia students graduate high school with pathways to economic mobility through college and workforce success,” and we are increasing the scale and capacity of our services to make it easier for students to access advising, enrichment programs, and partnerships that support their success in college and/or career trajectory.
As we await final governmental approvals on our merger, we have integrated programming and will effectively operate as one organization beginning September 1, 2022. During our first year as a merged organization, we will serve 3,300 students total through middle school, high school, and college and career programming. Following all necessary approvals, we will rebrand as a single entity with a new name, logo, and website.
About this Role:
Reporting to the Co-President, the VP of Data & Innovation oversees PFSS’s Data and Innovation team and leads the wider organization’s vision and strategy for using data to inform decisions across the organization, including rigorous program evaluation and continuous improvement efforts. The VP will oversee and support efforts to cultivate a culture of continuous learning and improvement, and work to establish PFSS as a thought leader in both research and practice. This role requires strong leadership and analytic skills, as well as experience with translating data and research into practice, and effectively communicating with a range of audiences and stakeholders. The VP will lead a team of at least two direct reports to execute on goals.
