The New York Foundling (“The Foundling”) is currently seeking a dynamic, dedicated Tutor Manager to lead the tutoring team in The Dorm Project.

The Dorm Project is a collaboration between The Foundling, New York City’s Administration for Children’s Services (ACS), and The City University of New York (CUNY) that connects youth in foster care who are attending a CUNY school with year-round dorming, life skills coaching, academic support, and more. The Dorm Project currently serves over 120 students at the John Jay College, City College, and Queens College dormitories, with a goal of dramatically increasing the rates of college and career success for youth in foster care.
