Program Responsibilities: K-8 Education Programs

Reports to: Education Program Coordinator

Position Summary: Masa is a community-based organization that partners with Latin American immigrant children, youth, and families to develop strong learners and leaders who fully engage in and contribute to the broader community. We envision a community that is civically engaged, empowered, and educated.

Masa’s community-led, integrated model engages the entire family, grounded in a deep commitment to strengthening literacy, leadership, and power for Mexican, Central American, and Indigenous People. Masa fosters a culturally responsive learning community in which families engage with direct service and advocacy programs to dismantle barriers to success.

The Program Associate plays an essential role in supporting recruitment, enrollment, and implementation of our education programs, which serves nearly 200 children in Kindergarten through 8th grade annually. The vast majority of participants are children of immigrants or immigrants themselves. At our education programs, Masa ensures children’s cultures and histories are celebrated, and supports students in growing academically so they are prepared to be critically conscious leaders.

This is an ideal position for someone who is fully bilingual in English and Spanish, passionate about supporting children and youth academically, as well as in building a positive cultural identity and a commitment to social justice, interested in education and non-profit management, and deeply committed to Masa’s mission of developing strong learners and leaders within the South Bronx’s Mexican, Central American and Indigenous speaking community.
