English and Math Program Consultant

Mission Graduates are looking for consultants to develop an English and Math program using a social justice framework that will aid our high school seniors in strengthening their fundamental English and Math comprehension skills.  70% of our students in the last two years upon entering college were required to take remediation (or basic skills) courses at their perspective institutions of higher learning.  The objective of the support programs are to assist students in scoring higher on English and Math placement exams and/ or minimize or bypass required remediation courses once they transition to college.  The program will train volunteers to work with students one-on-one, once a week through their senior year.

Required Qualifications

  • Experience teaching high school math or English or skill building courses at a community college.
  • A passion for working with first-generation college bound youth of color.
  • A belief in education equity.
  • A Master’s in math or English (preferable, but not required).

To Apply, please send your resume and cover to Catherine Marroquin at . This position is open until filled. For more information about Mission Graduates or the College Connect program, go to
