POSITION: AmeriCorps Program Coordinator
Blueprint Schools Network is in its sixth year as a CNCS AmeriCorps National Direct grantee for our Math Fellows Program. We are looking for a dynamic and civic-minded team player to join our organization and oversee our AmeriCorps program for more than 35 service members who are providing daily math tutoring at our partner elementary, middle and high schools across the country.
LOCATION: Boston, MA
Founded in 2010, Blueprint Schools Network is a national nonprofit organization that promotes educational equity and improves life outcomes for students by partnering with states, districts, and schools to plan, implement, and monitor school improvement initiatives.
Blueprint’s approach to rapidly improving student achievement at low-performing public schools is grounded in a framework of five core strategies that emerged through analyses of the attributes that drive student achievement and represent common elements of schools capable of closing the achievement gap. When implemented together, these strategies form a comprehensive and evidence-based framework for transforming the way schools operate either through our Blueprint Math Fellows Program or a customized whole-school improvement strategy.
Our culture and partnerships are defined by talented and mission-driven people who value students’ first, integrity, sustainable results, diversity, collaboration and humility.
About the Blueprint Math Fellows Program
The Blueprint Math Fellows program delivers targeted and intensive small group academic intervention in mathematics during the regular school day. Math Fellows (tutors) work with a maximum of four students per session. This allows for small group and individualized instruction and is designed to purposefully address gaps in foundational mathematics knowledge while building students’ ability to problem solve and think critically. The instruction that students receive in tutorial is supplemental and connected to what students are learning in their primary math class. In middle and high school, these tutorial sessions are built into the master schedule as an “elective” or additional math enrichment block. Thus, Fellows will lead five to six tutorial sessions each day based upon each school’s schedule.
Blueprint’s AmeriCorps Program Coordinator will be responsible for the implementation of our AmeriCorps Program across multiple sites in our network. This position is responsible for providing our Math Fellows with an exemplary member experience by leading year-round support, training, coaching and guidance. The Program Coordinator communicates frequently amongst Math Fellows, Blueprint staff and senior leadership, and the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS).
The AmeriCorps Program Coordinator must also ensure post-award compliance with AmeriCorps state and national policies and regulations. She/he provides training and support to regional Blueprint Site Managers on AmeriCorps regulations and requirements, and is responsible for grant reporting, data collection and analysis.
