Now hiring: College and Career Readiness Coordinator
The Community Center for Education Results (CCER), which supports the Road Map Project initiative, is looking for a College and Career Readiness Coordinator. Primary responsibilities will be to successfully manage a series of regional worksite tours and support DiscoverU.
- Worksite tours: These are field experiences in which high school students visit a local workplace to see what a company does, hear from employees about their educational and professional pathways, and participate in work-based activities.
- DiscoverU: An exciting week every fall for our communities to come together and support students of all grades to explore college and career options, in school and the community.
This position is a great opportunity for someone who is detailed-oriented, excels at problem solving and executing a work plan in a fast-moving environment, and enjoys working alongside school staff, community partners, local employers, and youth. Candidates must be committed to building equitable school and community supports so that all students can achieve their college and career goals. The College and Career Readiness Coordinator will work closely with the currently two-person College and Career Readiness team, and may, on a more limited basis, support other Road Map Project college and career efforts.
