About the Role
The Director of High School Program is a key leadership role at Summer Search Bay Area. This hire will lead a dedicated and collaborative team and oversee a program that currently serves over 430 students across 30 Bay Area high schools and community-based organizations spanning eight Bay Area counties.
Reporting to the Regional Program Director and working in close partnership with the National Program Team, this position will have the opportunity to deepen Summer Search’s impact and contribute to closing the opportunity gap for low-income youth across the Bay Area.
About the Company
While young people from low-income communities – who are disproportionately young people of color – face systemic inequities in school, in the workforce, and in life, they possess unique strengths, resilience and tremendous potential. When provided with support and resources, these young people fulfill their potential and achieve success in school, work, and life.
Through a combination of mentoring and transformative experiences, Summer Search supports young people to successfully transition from adolescence into adulthood. We aim to unleash the potential of our young people while also building a toolkit for navigating and challenging systemic barriers to higher education and career opportunities.
