open position: opportunity navigator
HomePlate is launching a new scholarship program for our youth that will allow them the opportunity to enroll and participate in an educational program focused on career preparation without having to worry about peripheral expenses. The overall responsibility of the Opportunity Navigator is to work with a select group of young people to prepare for, enroll in, and follow through with an educational or occupational program of their choice. In addition to helping them navigate the educational system, this may include assisting with acquiring housing, planning for childcare, and other aspects of the young people’s lives that will help them to be successful in their chosen program. Time will be divided between providing ongoing support to participants, researching educational and occupational program opportunities, and building relationships with potential partner organizations.
