ApplyPOSITION: Elementary Testing InternREPORTS TO: PrincipalLOCATION: YES Prep North Forest ElementaryPOSITION TYPE: InternshipCOMPENSATION: $15.00/hourTHE CHALLENGEAcross the nation, only half of all students from low-income communities graduate from high school and only 10% earn a college degree. Even though 89% of our students are economically disadvantaged, YES Prep provides evidence that different outcomes are possible. Eighty-three (83%) of YES Prep alumni matriculate to college within one year and alumni like Eddie Zapata are earning their college degrees at five times the rate of their peers with similar socioeconomic backgrounds. How do we do this? YES Prep has 21 campuses serving K-12, 19 campuses of those campuses serving 6th-12th graders, like Monique Bowie. The remaining 2 are YES Prep's newest elementary campuses starting in the 20-21 school year, and we will continue adding 2 elementary campuses per year until 2024. This allows us to serve even more families and provide access to a college preparatory mindset from a child's first schooling experience.Houston is the 4th largest city and our increasing population translates into 2,000 families on YES Prep's waitlist. YES Prep's student enrollment is estimated to grow from 14,500+ students currently, to 23,000 by the 2024 - 2025 school year.This challenge is magnified when we are serving the communities who are most impacted by the national pandemic of COVID-19. Regardless of the method of learning-virtual, in-person, or a hybrid model-we will "Keep YES Prep Learning," so that our students maximize their potential and educational experience, maintaining college readiness for all students as the bar.
