EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR POSITION ANNOUNCEMENT

May 6, 2024


About Us:

The El Monte Promise Foundation (EMPF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to establishing a seamless Cradle-to-College pathway for students in El Monte, South El Monte and surrounding communities, ensuring that every child reaches their full educational potential. EMPF serves as a backbone organization partnering with those who share the same conviction that higher education has the power to change lives.  

EMPF is centered in the power of education to close the achievement gaps for immigrant, low income, and students of color.   EMPF works to research and address  long-standing gaps in opportunity, achievement, and attainment that are complex and have roots inside and outside of schools. Our initiatives rely on research-driven and context-specific practices that are centered in community. 

As part of our cradle-to-college pathway approach, we engage students, teachers, families, and community as valued and necessary members of college preparation and access.  We are a backbone organization that brings together local governments, school districts, community organizations, businesses, parents, and community leaders to actively coordinate systems and mobilize resources for the educational benefit of our youth. We are proud to have committed staff and board members, as well as dedicated partners who work together to make college dreams a reality for our students.
