Publicolor, a not for profit organization, is seeking a detail oriented, collaborative and mission-driven individual for a full time Accounting Manager position.  He/she/they will be responsible for general day to day accounting functions, primarily focusing on expenses, including A/P, weekly program expense reports, payroll, general accounting, bank/credit card reconciliations, budget and cash flow analysis, and assisting the CFO in financial matters as requested.  Publicolor has a $3.6 million annual budget.  This position will work in close collaboration with one other accounting manager, and will report to the CFO.

This position will be in-person at our mid-town Manhattan location a minimum of two days per week.  In order to support and protect each other’s health, all staff working in person must show proof of vaccination.  In-person time will expand as the organization returns to the office over the next several months.

Publicolor is a 25 year-old youth development organization in New York City that engages high-risk students in their education through a multi-day, multi-year continuum of design-based programs that empower them for success in school, college, career, and life. Unlike most other youth organizations that focus on high-achieving, low-income students, Publicolor deliberately targets those students who are at high risk of dropping out. Our project-based learning models succeed in engaging them in their education year-round. 240 New York City schools and 231 under-resourced community sites have been “Publicolored” since 1996 – affecting 880,000 students and teachers, and 2,495,000 residents of low-income communities. And for the past years, 100% of our students finished high school on time, and 100% went on to college or to post-secondary accreditation programs. Publicolor has been honored twice at the White House (Clinton and Obama).
