NYC Department of Education
Community Associate – College and Career Resource Center Coach [004969AAA] (79Q950)
Posted Date: Feb 10, 2023 Deadline: Feb 21, 2023
Position Summary: The New York City Department of Education (NYC DOE) strives to ensure that every student has the opportunity to earn a high school or high school equivalency diploma. At the same time, we recognize that traditional high schools do not work for all students. District 79 was established to help these students succeed by providing diverse and innovative education opportunities that combine rigorous academic instruction with meaningful youth development. Research indicates that only 16% of students who receive a High School Equivalency Diploma enroll in a post-secondary institution. Without higher education, future work and earning prospects are extremely limited. District 79 believes that students in our programs often lack the knowledge, skills and support that would lead to college and career advancement, and that the absence of these elements leads students to believe that higher education and meaningful careers are “not for me”.
The College and Career Resource Center (CCRC) Coach performs a broad range of community-related duties for the alternative school programs that support District 79 students in meeting their education and career goals. This includes the planning, implementation, monitoring and administrative management of college and career services provided in association with the CCRC to students. The Coach also solicits assistance and resources from community and partner organizations to ensure that operational issues pertaining to both Hub and site-based Pathways to Graduation programs are implemented fully and support student post-secondary preparation. Performs related work.
