Established in 1920, the Center for Family Services (CFS) has been committed to uplifting individuals and families through an innovative continuum of care. Its efforts are focused on serving more than 10,000 families annually through early childhood, supportive housing, homeless prevention, workforce development, and several crisis hotlines. In 2017, CFS was awarded a 5-year implementation grant from the Department of Education to implement the Camden Promise Neighborhood (CPN) Initiative, a neighborhood based effort to improve education and create family economic stability for Camden families through a cradle-to college-to career continuum of services. This initiative seeks to improve academic achievement and family economic success in the lowest performing schools and neighborhoods in Camden. The four neighborhoods targeted are: Cooper Lanning, Bergen Square, Centerville, and Liberty Park.
CFS is seeking a full-time, experienced coordinator who is passionate about ensuring quality education and support services for vulnerable children and their families. The Middle-High School Transition Coordinator will be responsible for working with the Camden City School District (focused on Wiggins Family School and Camden High) and KIPP Cooper Norcross Academy to oversee and coordinate all middle school and high school academic and mentoring programs, services, and activities; ensure seamless transitions of services across the middle school to high school portion of the birth to college pipeline; and identify and address programming gaps. The Middle-High School Transition Coordinator will work closely with the CPN Social Solutions Team and CPN College and Career Readiness Team to ensure full integration of academic and social supports for target children and families and use data to assess educational outcomes, solicit feedback, and support continuous quality improvement.
