COLLEGE ACCESS COORDINATOR
Reporting to the College Access Program Manager, the College Access Coordinator (CAC) ensures that 9th-10th grade BUILD students receive the tutoring, resources, and academic support they need to succeed in all of their classes.
The CAPM and CAC work together to achieve two primary goals:
1) Ensure all BUILD students get academic support and counseling to ensure they are on track to graduate from high school and will be eligible-and-competitive for college; and
2) Ensure all BUILD students acquire the requisite academic, life, and entrepreneurial skills through their participation in the BUILD program during their high school years.
The CAC manages Metro DC’s afterschool Academic Success Center, including students, academic mentors and tutors, Monday-Thursday from 4pm-8pm. The CAC will specifically focus on providing and coordinating support and resources for students who have been identified by the College Access Program Manager, based on grade reports, as needing additional academic intervention and support. In most instances, students will have an academic GPA below 2.0 and/or will be failing 1 or more National Core Standard requirements. The CAC ensures that BUILD students receive the core components of our academic program. In addition, the CAC will play an instrumental role in assisting with the implementation of the after school component of our program, the Academic and Business “Incubator.” With the support of the College Access Program Manager, the CAC will support an overall case load of 50-60 academically underperforming students, with 8-12 students attending the Academic Success Center each night.
