Chemeketa Community College welcomes applications for a full-time PTO/STEP Navigator Coach.
The Pathways to Opportunity (PTO)/SNAP Training & Employment Program (STEP) Navigator Coach works to increase low-income students' connection to federal, state and local resources through deepened local and campus partnerships; expanded outreach and support for rural areas; and one-on-one student support. This role supports students as they access GED, ESOL, Career Technical and short-term training programs leading to economic mobility.
Chemeketa aspires to be an inclusive environment where we honor and value the unique contributions of our diverse students, employees, and community. We seek to foster cultural competence and pursue equitable solutions that support all students in achieving their educational goals. If you are interested joining the work of the college to pursue a supportive and inclusive culture, we encourage you to apply.
Closing Date: Sunday, January 26, 2020
You would be challenged to find a college that matters more to its community than Chemeketa means to the residents of Oregon’s Mid-Willamette Valley. If you can affirm our mission to provide opportunities for students to explore, learn, and succeed through quality educational experiences and workforce training, then Chemeketa will be a rewarding workplace to fulfill your potential and contribute your expertise.
