Colorado Nonprofit Association

Reengagement Specialist

Organization Overview: Colorado Youth for a Change (CYC) is an educational nonprofit organization with a statewide scope. CYC addresses barriers to learning by providing individualized supports throughout pivotal stages of students’ education journeys. We provide a continuum of services from Prekindergarten through high school to help students find success through tutoring, case management, and outreach to help in-school youth remain in school or out-of-school youth return to school. We envision an equitable education system where each student has access to the resources they need to maximize their own learning and growth.

Organizational Evolution: Over the past two and a half years, CYC has stepped up to lead education recovery efforts due to the pandemic, not only expanding its reach to more school districts and students but also tripling its budget and learning how to deploy resources quickly. This is an exciting time to join the team, as the organization has grown, developed a new mission and vision, created a three-year strategic plan, and positions itself to respond to many incredible opportunities to support students.  

Program & Position Summary: CYC’s Reengagement team supports young people who have left school early without a diploma. The Reengagement Specialist will work with Denver Public Schools, CYC Staff, as well as other nonprofit and service orientated agencies supporting youth with the goal of graduating high school. The Reengagement Specialist contacts over 1,000 youth who have left school through phone, text, email, and home visit outreach, connecting with approximately 400 hundred out-of-school youth per calendar year, in order to help 55 youth return to school. The Reengagement Specialist will help facilitate student enrollments, provide support services, and case management so students can successfully obtain credits and/or graduate. The Reengagement Specialist tracks their outreach, enrollments, and case management using CYC’s data management systems. This position is a hybrid of working out in the community, from CYC’s Denver office, and from home- the split of this varies on the time of year, need of students, meeting schedules, etc. This position is full-time with benefits. Hourly salary is $20.68 and bilingual hourly salary is $20.92.
