Please see the following link for details and to submit your resume/cover letter by April 5!

The Vice President Finance/CFO reports to the CEO and is responsible for all the financial activities of PEF, including but not limited to the agency’s financial reports, budget, contract invoicing, and audits.

In spite of robust programming at the high school level and scholarship support in college, many of PEF’s College Access Program graduates still face challenges that inhibit degree attainment. The PHENND/PEF Persistence Fellow will help uncover the “why” behind PEF’s persistence trends and make data-based recommendations for sustainable interventions, which in turn will inform the basis of a new post-secondary persistence framework to be implemented by PEF staff. Specifically, the Fellow’s primary responsibilities will be to:

  • Support the execution of original qualitative and quantitative research of PEF’s historical persistence practices and post-secondary outcomes
  • Strengthen data management and tracking practices of CAP graduates
  • Develop a model of time-bound college persistence interventions to be implemented by PEF staff
  • Lay a foundation for a future community-supported career coaching/mentoring program.
