Careers at The Hope Center

At the Hope Center, we are social scientists, practitioners, communicators, and activists committed to communities that demand affordable, accessible, high-quality education from high school to higher education and beyond. We are looking for dedicated individuals to join our team.

Associate Director of Finance & Administration

Summary of Position

The Hope Center seeks an Associate Director who is passionate about addressing structural inequality and racial disparities and committed to sustaining a team that gets into what the late Cong. John Lewis called “good trouble” on a regular basis.

This position is ideal for a talented finance director with experience and a strong skill set in the financial management of both grants and contracts within a Research I university. The Associate Director should be prepared to work closely with the new Senior Director of Operations & Finance to problem-solve, take ownership over business and strategic initiatives, and “fight fires” where relevant. The Associate Director will work very closely with the Finance teams in the Lewis Katz School of Medicine and Temple University. The right candidate will support the Hope Center’s internal financial and administrative procedures to ensure Center goals are achieved and help to expand our portfolio to establish the Center as a Service Core at Temple University.


Senior Policy Analyst

Summary of Position

The Hope Center for College, Community and Justice, in the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University is seeking a Senior Policy Analyst (SPA) to join our growing team. As a mission-driven organization we take seriously the importance of rigorous research, engagement, communication activities, and advocacy. Our diverse team is committed to communities that demand affordable, accessible, high-quality education from high school through higher education and beyond. Our teammates demonstrate why #RealCollege matters: we have collectively lived the challenges of navigating government bureaucracy and cash-strapped colleges, experienced the trauma and perils of living without financial stability, and experienced marginalization along nearly every possible line.
