Pre-College Program Specialist (Detroit)

The Pre-College Programs Specialist (PCPS) will work alongside the College Success Manager at MFS and the school leadership at each of the nine schools. To accomplish the ambitious goal of graduating 85% of our scholars from college, our students need to build the aspirations and belief that they can succeed in college, establish personal ownership over their goals, and develop the myriad skills needed to chart a successful path through life. These mindsets and skills encompass both the academic and non-academic realms, so we need to expose students to experiences that will help them develop new interests and passions, and build a sense of self-efficacy in both academic and non-academic pursuits.

Managing Director of Strategic Partnerships

The Education Trust-Midwest seeks a full-time Managing Director of Strategic Partnerships, reporting out of their office in Royal Oak, Michigan.

ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION:
The Education Trust-Midwest promotes high academic achievement for all Michigan students at all levels – prekindergarten through college. Founded in Michigan in 2010, ETM works alongside parents, educators, policymakers, and community and business leaders in Michigan to transform schools and colleges into institutions that serve all students well. Lessons learned in these efforts, together with unflinching data analyses and research, shape the organization’s work with the goal of closing the gaps in opportunity and achievement that consign far too many young people – especially those who are black, Latino, American Indian, or from low-income families—to lives at the margins of the American mainstream. 

ETM is part of the national Education Trust network which is headquartered in Washington D.C.  Founded in 1996, the Education Trust speaks up for students, especially those whose needs and potential are often overlooked. The Education Trust is widely recognized as an unrivaled source of effective advocacy, expert analysis and testimony, concise written and spoken presentations, research, and technical assistance to districts, colleges, and community-based organizations.  Ed Trust’s California division, Ed Trust-West, has worked to close achievement gaps for more than 13 years in the state of California. Regardless of location or context, Ed Trust, Ed Trust-Midwest and Ed Trust-West maintain a relentless focus on improving the education of all students, particularly those the system traditionally has left behind.

ABOUT THE POSITION:
The Education Trust-Midwest seeks a full-time Managing Director of Strategic Partnerships to develop and lead new partnerships – and deepen existing partnerships – to advance educational quality and equity for all Michigan children. Reporting to the Executive Director in our Royal Oak office and working in close partnership with the executive leadership and program directors, the Managing Director of Strategic Partnerships will provide overall direction to develop, coordinate, and implement the organization’s collaborative efforts to advance a state-wide policy and educational  agenda on behalf of students, in partnership with other organizations across the state.

This is a new position at The Education Trust-Midwest, and this individual will serve as a member of the management team. This is a senior leadership role.  This individual will provide the strategic vision and collaborative leadership necessary to plan and execute state-wide coalition-building and new partnerships focused on advancing educational equity and quality. This is an ideal opportunity for an experienced, strategic-minded individual to build a new body of promising work and leverage the organization’s successful track record and expertise in policy, practice and advocacy work at the state levels.
