  • Provide administrative support across projects, proactively addressing needs and managing tasks to ensure timely and effective execution without waiting for direction.
  • Prepare essential documents, reports, and presentations, alongside scheduling and managing crucial meetings.

  • A self-sufficient organizer who excels at multitasking and prioritizing in a dynamic, autonomous environment.
  • An entrepreneurial spirit, eager to take initiative, drive projects forward, and act decisively without needing much guidance.
  • An adaptive and resilient individual, with the agility to navigate the rapid pace and evolving needs of a groundbreaking organization in a start-up-like environment.
  • An exceptional communicator and community advocate, deeply invested in racial equity and dedicated to uplifting voices within diverse communities, especially in a Black urban neighborhood.
  • A tech enthusiast proficient in modern tools and platforms, including Google Workspace, Slack, Zoom, MS Office, and project management tools, with an interest in enhancing our collaborative efforts and operational efficiency.
  • Practically equipped with reliable vehicular transportation and the ability to lift up to 10-15 lbs as needed for tasks such as office setup and event coordination.

Our Core Values:

  • Respect for Confidentiality: We handle sensitive information with care and integrity.
