Metanoia: Who are we?


Metanoia is an established leader in asset-based community development in the Charleston region. We pursue an innovative model for helping communities that work to discover and grow the assets of distressed neighborhoods so that community health is restored from the inside-out. We support a movement that champions thriving schools and businesses, enhancing core economic and social sustainability.


Why work for Metanoia?

Metanoia arrives at strong community participation by obeying the ‘Iron Rule’ of community organizing – to never do for people what they can do for themselves. And by always requiring an exchange for any opportunities we present to the community. For example, our after-school programs are not free to parents but charge four hours-worth of community participation a month. By creating systems of exchange, we create a sense of pride and ownership that local residents feel toward Metanoia. The highest compliment that is paid to us is when residents refer to Metanoia as “us” or “we” rather than “them.” To learn more about our organization please visit our website at pushingfoward.org.


We have a Program Coordinator position available and we are looking for a candidate who wants to join our fantastic team, located in the North Charleston area.
