About Oakland Promise
The College Access team provides group advising, coordinates and aligns resources, and plans structured activities to promote college and career access for all students. Partnerships with other college and career access organizations provide additional capacity to carry out the OP’s work in OUSD high schools and ensure that the services and support are coordinated, minimizing duplication and maximizing opportunities for students.
The College Access is one of four programs within Oakland Promise working to ensure that every child will graduate from high school with the expectation, skills, and resources to complete college and/or be successful in the career of their choice.
Under the supervision of the Director of College Access, the Coordinator is responsible for working with students, parents, and other relevant persons to support the work of the Oakland Promise College Access team. The Coordinator will collaborate with the College Access Manager, College Access Coordinator, and College and Career Readiness Specialist (CCRS) at Oakland schools serving grades 6-12th grade to ensure that the college access, financial literacy, and workforce development address the needs of all students, including historically marginalized students. All aspects of program planning are addressed to ensure all students have equitable access to programs and services needed to graduate from high school and pursue post-secondary education and careers.
Employment eligibility will include background check, fingerprints, tuberculosis and/or other employment clearance.
