The Vietnamese Student Union at UCLA is hiring a project director for the Higher Opportunity Program for Education for the 2009-2010 academic year. As an outreach project seeking to increase access to higher education for at-risk high school students since 2000, HOPE has served the communities of Westminster and Chinatown and has recently expanded its efforts into the San Gabriel Valley. The project is funded through the UCLA Student Initiated Access Center, which also oversees six other similar outreach projects jointly administered by both students and full time staff. As a project director, you will be responsible for day-to-day administration of the project as well as for building relationships within the communities being serviced. The position is a full time job that begins July 1st, 2009 and ends June 30, 2010, with the potential of rehiring pending an annual review.
Applicants are required to have a four year degree by June of 2009. Please note that applications are due by February 13th, 2009.
Additionally, we will be hosting a mixer for potential applicants at UCLA's Student Activities Center, room 105D on Saturday, January 24th from 4pm to 7pm.
