The Yakima and Skagit Valley GEAR UP program provides a variety of college readiness activities and programs through direct service and contracts with schools. We have an outstanding opportunity for a Director to provide leadership, oversight, and compliance with all applicable rules and regulations pertaining to a federal training grant funded by the U.S. Department of Education. As a partnership grant under the GEAR UP Program, this project is a collaboration between the University of Washington (UW), 13 school districts and several community-based partners including Junior Achievement, Boeing, Museum of Flight, College Board, etc. Given the predominance of services to schools and students in the Yakima Valley and to lesser degree the Skagit Valley, the position is stationed off-campus in a rented facility at Heritage University in Toppenish Washington.
