Organization and Role
Thrive Scholars seeks a dynamic professional with comprehensive experience in the area of mental health and a passion for supporting low income, first-generation students and students of color in their college experience.
The mission of Thrive Scholars is for high-achieving, low-income, underrepresented students to get into and graduate from top colleges equipped to reach their full career potential. Through an intensive six-year program, Thrive Scholars provides students with college counseling and intensive academic preparation before college and a comprehensive set of academic, personal, social-emotional, financial, and career supports throughout college. This continuum of support directly addresses the unique barriers our students face in entering and succeeding at selective colleges and in competitive careers.
As Thrive Scholars’ newest College Success Manager (CSM), you will leverage your rapport-building and advising skills to provide tailored one-on-one coaching to our college Scholars so they thrive on campus, academically and personally, and graduate with great grades and ready for the career of their choice. In partnership with others on the College Success team, you will design and lead programming for Scholars focused on the knowledge, skills and mindsets needed for their sustained success. You will utilize your expertise in the area of mental health to serve as the content expert on our team in ensuring that programming effectively supports Scholars’ holistic wellbeing and meets Scholars’ unique mental health needs, and that Scholars are connected to relevant external mental health resources when needed.
Due to the ongoing COVID pandemic, Thrive Scholars has adapted our programming, including our typically in-person Summer Academy, to a fully virtual model. When it is safe to resume the in-person Summer Academy, the College Success Manager will support students at our Summer Academy in Los Angeles. If the College Success Manager is Boston-based, this will include an expectation of a minimum of 4 weeks of on-site presence in Los Angeles during the summer. When in-person programming resumes, during the year, there may be limited travel to college campuses of students in the CSM'S caseload.
The College Success Manager will report to the Director of College Success and will work closely with our existing College Success Manager.
For a candidate with extensive relevant program and mental health experience, the position may be elevated to a Senior College Success Manager level.
The Ideal Candidate
Knowing its importance to the success of our work, Thrive Scholars is committed to diversity and inclusion, and we aspire to build a diverse staff team and community. We strongly encourage people of all backgrounds to apply.
