Overview of the Organization

 

SPSF Pulaski is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was founded in 1991 to provide scholarship dollars and support services to high-potential, low-income, single-parents in Pulaski County, Arkansas. Our students are highly motivated individuals who desire a better life for themselves and their families.

 

We nurture families and offer a strong support community through our mentoring program and access to a wide network of community resources. Additionally, we host an empowering workshop series that addresses issues relevant to our students: Financial Literacy, Communication and Leadership, Personal Management, and Professionalism and Polish.

 

Consistently, over 90% of our students graduate or continue their education. SPSF provides a “hand-up” to single parents who demonstrate the ability and commitment to be successful in completing their college education. The results are impressive–students move from a place of being economically dependent to a place of full-time employment and earning competitive wages that meet the needs of their families.

 

Overview of the Role

 

The Program Coordinator will oversee SPSF Pulaski student service programming. Within this role, the qualified candidate empowers approximately 50 single parents per semester to achieve their goals of higher education. This work is done by building strong relationships with scholars, volunteers, partner schools, and donors. Recruiting and supporting students through the application process, setting up meaningful enrichment opportunities and mentoring students through service that provides a hand up to these hand working students is critical. The Program Coordinator will have a deep understanding of the environments and communities in which we work. They will work closely with students, alumni, donors, staff and volunteers to ensure the success of the organization.
