Position Overview

We seek a Program Manager (PM) who will manage and mentor a team of full-time AmeriCorps members, overseeing the implementation of our service model in one school in Seattle. This Program Manager opening is for our school partner at Olympic Hills Elementary School in North Seattle.

Program Managers are responsible for three main areas: program implementation, corps member program delivery and experience, and service partner management. The Program Manager must be effective in relationship development and team management, coaching a team of 6-11 AmeriCorps members to deliver attendance, behavior, and course performance interventions to students, as well as enabling a rewarding, productive, professional and successful year of service. In this way, the PM is responsible for the overall management of the day-to-day programmatic operations of their team, as well as leading their team to ensure that all goals and service outcomes are met.

Additionally, the Program Manager serves as the primary City Year liaison in schools, building strong relationships with school administrators and personnel to enable success and sustainability of our annual $100K contract with schools.

Reporting to a Program Director, the Program Manager plays a critical role in implementing City Year Seattle / King County’s school-based service model. Program Managers are primarily based at one school site, with some time spent at our City Year Seattle offices.

During the pandemic, Program Managers are expected to serve in person while schools remain in person, though some of our trainings and internal collaboration work is happening virtually. Additionally, due to requirements from Washington State and Seattle Public Schools, City Year staff and AmeriCorps members are required to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19, unless they receive a medical or religious accommodation.
