CREWS Program Coordinator
Reports to: CREWS Program Manager
Oakland Promise is working to ensure that every Oakland child will graduate from high school with the expectation, skills, and resources to complete college and be successful in the career of their choice. Oakland Promise includes four programs: Brilliant Baby, Kindergarten to College (K2C), Future Centers, and College Scholarships and Completion, that provide a cradle to career continuum of college-focused support for students. Our program strategies touch the lives of children and families in early childhood (ages 0-5), elementary, middle, and high school, culminating in multi-year scholarships and support for students in college. Our goal is to dramatically increase the number of college graduates from Oakland and ensure that all
students, regardless of background, hold a college-bound identity. Oakland Promise provides two-year and four-year college scholarships and mentoring to Oakland public high school students. We are especially interested in skilled individuals committed to social change, who want to ensure the success of students underrepresented in college, attend, and graduate and expand their life opportunities. College Completion serves over 2000 scholars in postsecondary education.
The CREWS Leadership Program is a part of the Oakland Promise College Completion Team’s wrap-around persistence support for incoming first-year students. In the CREWS (Community, Resilience, Empowerment, Wellness & Self-Advocacy) program, current 2nd – 4th year OP Scholars work as “CREWS Leaders” to provide online and in-person peer support for first-year students to address the challenges of adjusting to college life. Through the CREWS program, Scholars are exposed to resources for financial aid, tutoring services, mental health, professional development, internships, and so much more.
Under the supervision of the CREWS Program Manager, the CREWS Program Coordinator works with staff, volunteers, students, parents, mentors, and other relevant persons to support Oakland Promise’s College Completion program. The Program Coordinator will cross-collaborate within other programs to carry out the strategic plan of Oakland Promise to ensure Oakland students have equitable access to programs and services needed to graduate from postsecondary education.
Hours are full-time, averaging 40 hours per week. Some nights/weekends may be required.
