Executive Director - College Summit Colorado
College Summit


Location: Denver
Industry: Nonprofit
Job Level: Senior

Company Description:

A national non-profit founded in 1993, College Summit partners with school districts to increase their college-going and success rates by fostering a culture where going to college is the expectation of every student, not the exception. The country's largest provider of college access services for teens in low income communities, College Summit works with nearly 50,000 students and is committed to doubling the number of students we serve to 100,000 over the next 5 years. Many, if not most, of these students will be the first in their families to attend college.

College Summit collaborates with government, leading businesses, foundations and policy groups to prepare all students for the next steps in education and career.

In 2008, College Summit worked with the federal government to require that every high school in the nation know how many of its students were going to college. The following year, we were honored to be a recipient of a portion of President Obama's Nobel Peace Prize Award fund. This year, together with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Facebook, College Summit led the College Knowledge Challenge, a multi-million dollar initiative that uses the power of technology and mobile apps to help all students, parents, and educators in low-income communities navigate the college-going process.

Leveraging entrepreneurship and innovation, our team members channel their skills and passion to open the doors of opportunity to more and more young people across America.

For more information, visit www.collegesummit.org.

Job Description:
College Summit is currently seeking a passionate and strategic Executive Director for Colorado to oversee and deepen the region's efforts.

College Summit has deep roots in Colorado. J.B. Schramm, College Summit's Founder and CEO, is a Denver native and East High School graduate. Metro Denver students were first served by College Summit in 1996 when 32 students attended our signature summer workshop. A College Summit Colorado office opened in 2001. College Summit Colorado has partnered with schools in districts throughout Metro Denver, including Mapleton, DPS, and Aurora. With the 2013-14 school year, the region will begin serving students in southwestern Colorado — the first expansion outside of the Metro Denver area to date.

Schools that work with College Summit are experiencing, on average, an 18% increase in their college enrollment rates. The Colorado region is also driving innovative programming with its Peer Leadership Initiative, set to launch in 11 high schools this fall.

To date, nearly 9,000 youth from low-income communities in the Metro Denver area have benefited from College Summit tools and services. In addition to fees from schools, College Summit's program has received generous investment support from a number of key area funders.

On that foundation, College Summit Colorado is poised to scale their results to achieve increased impact. With local and national reach, the Executive Director will help drive the post-secondary dialogue in Colorado (working both at a systems level and with individual high schools to equip them with the tools required to increase their college enrollment results) and will also be a core member of College Summit's national leadership team.

This is an excellent opportunity for a dynamic and innovative leader with a successful track record in the development of high-impact educational partnerships, fundraising, and organizational development to lead College Summit Colorado to effectively support more schools and low-income students.

Job Qualifications:
* A successful track record of significant professional achievement in an innovative and successful education, non-profit, social enterprise, or entrepreneurial business environment; demonstrated understanding of school and district culture and the overall educational environment is critical.
* Extensive experience in fundraising and/or sales. The ideal candidate has built a high-performing fundraising operation that increases the recurrence and predictability of contributions, as well as long-term engagement of both institutional and individual donors.
* Demonstrated success recruiting, retaining, and supporting the professional development of a highly diverse and talented team.
* A strategic and visionary leader with the ability to be resourceful, set clear priorities, and guide investment in people and systems.
* Exceptional relationship-building skills, with the ability to work with diverse groups, including school leaders and major funders.
* Strong financial management of a department or organization required; previous board management experience and experience in education and college readiness preferred.
* Extensive networks in, and knowledge of, the region's educational and philanthropic communities; ideally with successful relationships with the top leadership of local educational initiatives and school systems.
* A results-oriented problem-solver who is entrepreneurial and driven but also flexible, highly collaborative and open to the input and thoughts of others, and who can point to his/her contributions in a fast-paced, measurement-driven, and dynamic environment.
* Passion for, and demonstrated commitment to, improving the life opportunities of disadvantaged youth; sensitivity to the needs of diverse racial and ethnic populations.
* Bachelor's degree required; advanced degree preferred.
