Our mission is to support and empower the Arab Immigrant and Arab American community by
providing services to help them adjust to their new home and become active members of society.
Our aim is for families to achieve the ultimate goals of independence, productivity, and stability.
The Programs Associate will utilize the skills and time of volunteers and interns to ensure successful
programmatic delivery across the organization. The Programs Associate will recruit qualified candidates for both youth and adult programming.
The Associate will match qualified volunteers with various elements of AAANY programming, such as
Adult Education, Casework, and Administrative programs. Additionally, the Programs Associate will
spearhead much of our citizenship offerings by securing and training volunteers to teach citizenship
courses and conduct one-on- one tutoring in preparation for the citizenship test. Once these programs
are matched with volunteers, the Associate’s job will be to support volunteers in developing strong
programs (most of which have an existing curriculum to work from) and ensure that the volunteers
are adequately managing their programs. The Associate will collect and review data on the program’s
success and will report this data regularly to leadership. Moreover, he/she will also evaluate the
programs based on this data, and make mid- and full-year recommendations for how to improve
