The VSU is in search of the next HOPE Project Staff Team to oversee Project HOPE's Parent and Site component, and are seeking someone who has experience with and a passion for parent outreach, educational outreach, and working with underrepresented/disadvantaged communities. 

We are looking to hire undergraduate students interested in an on-campus part-time job as a HOPE Project Staff for the 2017-2018 academic year. This position is a full academic year commitment serving and empowering high school youth to achieve higher education.

If this sounds like the job for you, please apply via Bruin View by searching "CPO-HOPE" and submitting a resume and supplemental questions by 11:59 PM on Wednesday, June 7th.

HOPE stands for Higher Opportunity Program for Education, but those words cannot define the complete experience HOPE wants to bring to our students. Since 1999, Project HOPE has committed to outreaching to under-resourced and underrepresented youth, specifically targeting Vietnamese and Southeast Asian high school youth in the Westminster and San Gabriel area.

The PC will work closely with the Site Coordinators to ensure that the parent component is relevant to each site, and work with the Academic Development Coordinator to help bridge understanding of education to parents and issues that impact students.
