Program Coordinator - June Jordan High School at Mission Graduates
Mission Graduates 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 afterschool support services that serve over 4,800 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. 
Program Summary: Mission Graduates has been providing quality afterschool programming for its entire 50-year history.  The organization is partnering with June Jordan School of Equity (JJSE) to develop and implement a quality afterschool program that blends extracurricular activities and builds a college-going culture on campus. Youth who participate in the program develop a sense of self-confidence in their ability to learn, to speak their voice, and contribute to their community. The program infuses college messaging throughout its curriculum to ensure both youth and parents alike develop or strengthen expectations to enter college.
