School Support Team Program Associate

Oakland, California, United States


In the past 100 years, we have gone from a Model T to a Tesla, from a switchboard to a smartphone, yet the very institution charged with preparing America’s students for success has remained virtually unchanged. Our students deserve better. It’s from that conviction – and commitment – that XQ Institute was born.

In 2016, XQ Institute launched XQ: The Super School Project engaging America in answering the question: What would high school look like if all students graduated prepared for college, career, and life? We issued the largest open call to rethink American public high school in our country’s history. In September 2016, we announced a cohort of 10 Super Schools who will be supported by XQ to bring their ideas to life, many opening in Fall 2017. XQ isn’t just about ideas, it’s about enduring impact; about inspiring and amplifying meaningful, measurable solutions, and real results, in high schools from Connecticut to California, and every state in-between.

To meet the ambitious goals of the Super School Project, XQ is looking for a School Support Team Program Associate.

The Role

The Program Associate will provide outstanding client service and essential communications and administrative support to the XQ Super Schools and to ensure successful development and execution of quality programs. The Associate will work in collaboration with the Program Manager and the Senior Strategist to develop and support programs as well as assess trends and effectiveness in school engagement and participation. The Associate will receive support from the Program Manager.

By working on the School Support Team, you will have a direct and immediate impact on the success of the XQ Super School Cohort and Awardees by leading coordination support, building authentic relationships, and assisting the School Support Team collaborate effectively with schools as well as the entire organization.
