College Bound Dorchester is a non-profit, community-based organization working to ensure that all students see obtaining a college degree as not just a possibility for their lives but an expectation. College Bound Dorchester programs provide a range of educational services to the underserved in efforts to lay the foundation for future academic, economic, and social success. The College Connections program engages at-risk youth in education services and opportunities, with the goal of supporting students through pursuing a college degree. A unique factor in our College Connections design is the engagement with an increasing number of Core Influencers over the next three years. For us, Core Influencers are defined as gang-involved youth and young adults ages 18-27. As we work to engage more Core Influencers, College Bound also wants to set itself up for replication. It is with these two organizational goals that College Bound seeks a Program Development Intern to codify and refine the College Connections program design and our training institute for College Readiness Advisors (CRAs), as well as the identification of neighborhoods in which to focus our efforts. To accomplish this work the Program Development Intern will work most closely with the Evaluation and Impact Director in implementing and monitoring College Bound’s Theory of Change and Learning Agenda, as well as assisting in ongoing research initiatives.
