Organization Description

New Immigrant Community Empowerment (NICE) builds the individual and collective power of immigrant workers, with a focus on newly arrived immigrants and day laborers, who face some of the most significant challenges in finding safe, dignified, and fair-paying jobs and who are among those at the highest risk of workplace abuse and exploitation. Together with our members and supporters, we work to make New York a place where all people, regardless of immigration status, can live and work with dignity and justice.

NICE’s direct services address our member's most critical needs: basic soft- and hard-skills trainings, health and safety certifications, assistance reclaiming stolen wages, know-your-rights trainings, and job dispatching. On top of these services, NICE seeks to develop the leadership skills of our immigrant worker members to participate in city and state grassroots campaigns to change policies that impact the issues that most affect them, like wage theft and unsafe worksites.

POSITION SUMMARY 

The Education Coordinator will work with the Training & Education Director and the team to execute and continue the strategic development of NICE’s Training & Education Program as a key element of our membership’s workforce development, organizing and political engagement; with the intention to create our School for Immigrant Workers, among others.

Reporting directly to the Training & Education Director, the Education Coordinator will oversee the development and execution of education initiatives under the Training & Education Program, such as the English as a Second Language (ESOL) program as well as other Worker Education initiatives developed in strategic partnership with the Director, the Training & Education team and potentially in collaboration with other key program areas. The Education Coordinator will develop the education curriculum for various initiatives and implement the program, as well as recruit, onboard, and coordinate volunteers to support the program. 

The Education Coordinator thinks strategically about Education as a tool for political development, education and organizing to engage members beyond their roles as students and funnel them into active membership and participation at NICE.

When needed, the Education coordinator supports the implementation of other programs and components of the Training & Education Program, rapid-response actions & strategy shifts within the program area and organization.

The qualified candidate is able and willing to work on-site, virtually, and/or during some evenings and weekends, ensuring at all times that activities are conducted professionally, in a culturally-sensitive manner, and consistent with the mission and standards of the organization. We are seeking a highly motivated, high-performing, and organized colleague who is able to work in a fast-paced, dynamic, and collaborative work environment.
