The Richmond Promise college scholarship program needs an executive director.

Richmond Promise is a $35 million slice of the $90 million community benefits agreement between the city and Chevron Richmond connected to the upcoming modernization of the Richmond Refinery. City Council voted to use the $35 million on a program promising college tuition assistance for every every high school senior. The program’s aims are not only to make college more affordable, but to also spark a college-going culture that data suggests is lacking at Richmond high schools.

The leadership role packs an annual salary range of $90,000 to $150,000. The person hired will lead an effort to ensure every college-going high school senior who lives in Richmond gets a $1,500 annual boost to attend college for up to four years, as mandated by council. The person must also launch fundraising efforts in order to sustain and grow the program. At $1,500 annually per student, the program will last about eight years on the initial $35 million grant, city staff says.

Check out the job description, which includes information on how to apply.

  4. Dear Sir, I hope this is the appropriate place to inquire as to whether of not the position for executive director of the Richmond Promise has been filled. I am certain that my qualifications are a match for your search. I worked in central administration in WCCUSD. I have been accountable for budgets over 300 million. I have exceptional communication and public speaking skills. I am familiar with the members of the WCCUSD school board, 4 of the members of the city council, and the cabinet level staff of WCCUSD. I would like this opportunity to bring success to all involved. Again, please let me know if the position is closed.
    Respectfully,
    Kaye
