Description

The Abington Engineering Ahead Summer Bridge Program is seeking a Program Assistant, an outgoing, positive, and detail-oriented individual who is interested in helping to recruit first-year undergraduates. Abington Engineering Ahead is a non-residential summer bridge program designed to increase success and retention among diverse first-year Engineering majors. The Program Assistant will work closely with the Engineering Ahead Academic Director and staff in the overall coordination, supervision, implementation, and management of the program. Responsibilities during Spring 2019 (30 hours in total from March to June 2019, on wage payroll) involve various aspects of planning and preparing for the summer bridge program, such as program outreach and marketing, coordination of communication with program participants (once selected) and their parents. Almost all of these spring semester responsibilities could be conducted remotely, supported by just one or two spring visits to Abington. The ideal candidate will have excellent organizational skills, leadership abilities, oral and written communication skills. A STEM background is not required but would be advantageous.
