Job Openings: New Opportunities at BUILD!
We have two exciting openings for Entrepreneurs 1 (9th Grade) Program Managers at BUILD!
Founded in 1999, BUILD’s mission is to use entrepreneurship to excite and propel disengaged, low-income students through high school to college success. We believe that the power of student ideas in action drives youth to reach their fullest potential in school and beyond. Our four-year high school program offers a unique blend of entrepreneurship, academics, and personal support that attracts and motivates many students who are otherwise at high risk of failing classes and dropping out of high school.
Our students develop their own business ideas, write business plans, pitch to funders, and launch real businesses. This real-world business experience makes school relevant and motivates them to succeed. To help them become college-eligible, students also receive individualized academic support and advising for their school-work and college planning.
BUILD currently serves over 1,000 high school students at programs located in Redwood City and Oakland, CA; Washington DC; and Boston, MA.
Reporting to the local Site Director, the Entrepreneurs 1 Program Manager (E1PM) is responsible for managing the first-year entrepreneurship program, an academic elective for 9th graders taught in partner high schools. S/he will ensure a positive student experience and that students acquire the requisite academic, life, and entrepreneurial skills through their participation in the E1 program by training and managing BUILD teachers and mentors, ensuring delivery of E1 curriculum to meet benchmarks, and maintaining strong relationships with our partner high schools.
Locations: Redwood City and East Oakland, CA
