At Thrive Scholars, our goal is to see talented BIPOC students from economically disadvantaged communities develop economic mobility and financial security, and become the diverse corporate, civic, and academic leaders our country so desperately needs.
Our comprehensive, data-driven, high-touch program model focuses on the key inflection points that can be the difference between just graduating from any college, and graduating from a top college with the grades, degree, career skills, and network needed to thrive in a career that positions students for economic mobility. Over our six-year program, Scholars benefit from admissions and intensive academic preparation before college and a comprehensive set of academic, personal, social-emotional, financial, and career supports throughout college.
The two primary components of our High School program are the Summer Academy and college counseling.
Thrive Scholars is looking to recruit a student-focused and results-driven College Access Manager to equip our students for the selective admission and financial aid process at Top 100 colleges and universities. The College Access Manager provides tailored college guidance and admissions support for a caseload of approximately 45 academically and personally motivated students from across the country. Additionally, the College Access Manager will have opportunities to leverage program design and project management skills in supporting the planning and logistics of the Summer Academy program.
Reporting to the Director of College Access, the College Access Manager works closely with their fellow Access Managers, as well as colleagues on the Scholar Recruitment, College Success, Mentorship and Career teams.
This position can be remote, with preference for it to be located in Boston or New York City. During Summer Academy, the College Access Manager will be expected to be on-site at Summer Academy during most of the six-week program.
