JOB ANNOUNCEMENT

Extended Day Coordinators
(Kindergarten- 5th Grade)

Mission Graduates (formerly St. John’s Educational Thresholds Center) is a nonprofit organization that increases the number of K-12 students in San Francisco’s Mission District who are prepared for and complete a college education.

We work towards fulfilling our mission through a wide range of after-school support services that serve close to 1,000 children, youth and families each year. Our vision is to transform the culture of our neighborhood so that college becomes the expectation for Mission families, rather than the exception.

The Extended Day Program (EDP) is an award-winning after-school academic enrichment program serving 450 students K-5 year-round from Marshall, Bryant and Flynn Elementary. Youth who participate in the EDP develop a sense of self-confidence in their ability to learn, to speak their voice and to contribute to their community. The program infuses “college messaging” throughout its curriculum to ensure both children and parents alike begin visualizing early for the college experience.
