Since 1989, Partnership 4 Kids (P4K) has harnessed the power of mentoring to engage thousands of Omaha's low-income students in academic achievement and college access. It is the agency's mission to "mentor kids for college today and careers tomorrow". P4K provides programming and services for 6,100 students, (pre-k through college). The agency's direct service programming focuses exclusively on students within the Omaha Public Schools (OPS) district, because of its concentrated level of need.
It is our belief that the most powerful tools to overcome poverty are education and consistent mentor support. Therefore, by engaging these students in their educational process, offering them an added support from a caring adult who is invested in their success, and making certain they are college and career-ready, P4K students are able to begin building towards a successful future. P4K programs ensure: 1.
Students' grades and state test scores are positively impacted through program participation; 2. Students develop life skills and set goals increasing their engagement in the school process and a sense of hope for the future; 3. Students develop a stronger sense of self-worth through goal achievement, participation in strengths-based activities with the consistent presence of positive adult role models; 4.
Students will graduate from high school and pursue post-secondary education. The most qualified applicant for this position will move these efforts forward by providing systems analysis and data management support; becoming the resident expert on the agency's current data management system, thereby significantly increasing agency capacity to steward new and existing supporters who are willing to invest in breaking our city's cycle of generational poverty through education and mentoring. Qualities should include critical and analytical thinking, aggressive researching skills, exemplary communication and presentation skills, and training experience.
