Reports to: Managing Director of Persistence, Chicago
Start date: December 2019
Location: Chicago, IL
Position Filled By: November 2019
Potential and talent are equally distributed, but opportunity is not. Nearly identical percentages of 10th graders from low- and high-income communities aspire to complete a postsecondary education. Only 22% of students from low-income communities earn a college degree, compared to 67% of their peers from high-income areas. At OneGoal, we believe that all students – not just those with the best grades or the most resources – have the ability and deserve the opportunity to earn a postsecondary degree. What’s more, we have developed a solution that works, and we believe this problem is solvable within our lifetime.

You will also be responsible for leading the Year 2 DTS team through the implementation of a new set of culturally relevant curricula that is uniquely tailored to the needs of our Chicago Program Directors and Fellows, as well as identify opportunities to keep Program Directors engaged through the end of their three year commitment to our program. Ultimately, the success of the Senior Director of Teacher Support Year 2 will be determined by our Fellow outcomes, which include but are not limited to: Fellow enrollment in a postsecondary path of their choosing, Fellow enrollment in high quality institutions and progressive pathways, and culturally relevant non-cognitive skill development as determined throughout the roll out phase of our new culturally relevant programming.
