Are you passionate about supporting youth and families? Looking for a way to gain experience in nonprofit operations and professional skills? Join Y.O.U. as a VISTA for a full-time service opportunity!
The Headquarters Operations Assistant will work to establish sustainable facilities practices for our new youth center and building in the 5th Ward of Evanston.
The Y.O.U. Headquarters facility serves two main purposes: 1) To directly support youth through Y.O.U. programming, hosting other non-profit partners, and conducting family events in the community and 2) supporting the 100+ Y.O.U. staff who provide critical services to the youth populations of Evanston/Skokie.
Desired facilities practices include procedures for community interactions with the building; developing partnerships with community organizations using our youth center spaces; creating a building maintenance plan; enhancing administrative methods and communications; and creating accessible policies and sustainable procedures in Y.O.U.’s new headquarters. Such functions will help facilitate Y.O.U.’s long term organizational priorities: our high-quality programs, an excellent workplace, and a supportive infrastructure.
