Descripción

+ Role Summary

Community Coordinators foster positive, consistent, and productive relationships with a designated caseload of Rainier Athletes (RA) students, families, and mentors. They also serve as Site Lead for 2+ schools, which includes coordinating programming with mentors, teachers, building administration, students, and families.

The Community Coordinator serves as the bridge between students, mentors, families, teachers, coaches and RA’s community partners. The primary responsibility of the Community Coordinator is to mobilize the RA village, especially the RA mentors, ensuring that the youth’s voices are heard, their needs are realized, and their identities are celebrated. An ideal Community Coordinator is a chameleon when it comes to communication in that they have the ability to seamlessly connect with stakeholders from various walks of life. A successful candidate realizes that they are solely responsible for the energy they bring to the community and will self regulate, form realistic boundaries, and nurture their own needs in order to make room for the energy required for this role.
