Bottom Line is dedicated to helping first-generation students from low-income backgrounds get into college, graduate from college, and go far in life. Our vision is to dramatically transform urban communities by producing thousands of new career-ready college graduates.
As one of the first college support organizations to focus on college completion, Bottom Line now produces best-in-class college graduation rates that eliminate the significant gap between first generation students from low-income backgrounds and their wealthier peers. We operate regional programs in Massachusetts, where we were founded in 1997, New York City and Chicago that collectively serve over 7,000 students. We plan to open two new sites in major urban areas and increase our footprint to over 10,000 students by 2020.
Bottom Line focuses on students who have the desire and potential to earn a degree, but lack the support structures necessary to navigate the college application process, make a responsible school choice, succeed in college, and prepare for a meaningful career.
Over the last 20 years, Bottom Line has developed a proven and proactive long-term, high-touch, high impact model. Full-time, trained and specialized advisors leverage our DEAL model which addresses the four key areas that are most likely to lead to college success: Degree, Employability, Affordability, and Life. Our relationship and results focused approach helps our students change their lives by gaining economic mobility through college selection, graduation, and career-readiness.
The Managing Director of Programs plays a critical leadership role to ensure Bottom Line continues to be a leader in college access, completion, and career readiness in the markets we serve. They are primarily responsible for: 1) Program Leadership, 2) Program Coordination and Management, 3) Partnership Management, and 3) Talent Development for the MA Access and Success Programs.
The ideal candidate is a strategic thinker and relationship builder with strong people instincts; is highly organized and thrives in a fast-paced, goal-oriented environment. This individual will have taken a hands-on approach in program management, and has a track record of effectively leading a performance-based and outcomes-based program and staff. They are a team-builder who operates and leads with the organization’s core values, mission, and vision in mind.
Reporting to the Executive Director (ED), the Managing Director of Programs will work closely with the regional leadership team, regional program directors, and program leadership from the National team.
