The mission of Operation Progress is to empower underserved youth to become educated, capable, ethical and productive people who will in turn lead, mentor and contribute to society at large. To do this, we guarantee our commitment to supporting students from 3rd grade through high school and beyond through our comprehensive program called Five Pillars of Success. Through Academics, Health & Wellness, Life Skills, Service and Safety & Support we believe hope, opportunity and success can be achieved.
Scholars are accepted into the OP program starting in 3rd or 4th grade and attend St. Lawrence of Brindisi and San Miguel from 3rd – 8th grade where they participate in OP’s 5 Pillars of Success. After graduating from 8th grade, the students attend a partnership school, boys matriculate into Verbum Dei High School and girls matriculate to St. Mary’s Academy. The goal is to have our scholars graduate from college well-rounded and career-ready.
Operation Progress is looking for a dynamic, high-energy candidate to fill the Program Director position. A successful candidate will be collaborative, confident and passionate executing about OP’s mission.
The Program Director is in charge of overseeing the current system while creating, documenting and implanting new processes and procedures to complement the growth. This position is responsible for the day-to-day logistics of the program, including program planning, development, and evaluation. Additionally, the Program Director would oversee mentorship programs, recruitment, small events, and support the staff. In short, the Program Director will make sure that all logistical pieces are running smoothly so we can keep up with our growth and success.
