To provide continued support for the Director of Curriculum and College Persistence for SEO College Scholars, which is important to SEO’s expansion efforts within New York City. The Director has direct responsibility over two key building blocks of the program: delivering best in class advisory services to college students through a team of highly trained College Persistence Advisers (“CPAs”) and continuing to develop an innovative and effective curriculum for all Scholars. The primary responsibilities combine direct supervisory responsibility over a team of CPAs (currently four) and specifically dedicated time to develop both curriculum content and delivery methods for individual advising and annual events.
