About i-tri

i-tri is an inclusive, immersive, community-based program that fosters self-respect, personal empowerment, self-confidence, positive body image and healthy lifestyle choices for adolescent girls. i-tri trains them to complete a youth-distance triathlon as a metaphor for life’s journey, giving them the opportunity to set seemingly impossible goals and helping them gain the tools to achieve those goals. Along their journey to the finish line, girls build confidence, and find their power physically, mentally and emotionally.

i-tri girls learn to believe in themselves, and that can change everything. i-tri focuses on working with middle-school girls because research shows that the largest drop in self-esteem occurs during early adolescence. 69% of elementary school-aged girls reported being “happy the way I am.” That figure plummets to 29% for high school girls.

The original pilot program consisted of 8 Middle School girls at Springs School in East Hampton, NY. 11 years later, i-tri has grown to serve over 700 girls from 11 school districts and continues to grow as we prepare for a National Expansion.

About the role:

We are looking to hire someone who “Gets It.” Our girls are looking for a leader, a mentor and someone who really cares about them. We are looking for someone who can be all of that AND responsible for creating an atmosphere of trust, acceptance and safety for the girls and their families.

This is a minimum of a three-year commitment. In the first year, you will shadow our Program Director for 1.5 days a week including one weekday afternoon/early evening and 4 hours on Saturday from January-July, working with one group of the girls, as you learn the process and the program. In the following years, this position will become a 80% of a full time equivalent (see hours below), 4 days a week and Saturday and you will be directly responsible for preparing and leading three groups in various East End School Districts from Mastic to Montauk.

Timeframe & Compensation:

Year 1: a part-time role from February – July. Ten (10) hours per week with compensation of $10,000

Year 2 & 3: Effectively 80% of a full-time position (schedule below), with annual compensation of $40,000.

·      January–July: 40 hours per week

·      September-December: 24 hours per week
