·      Support youth and their families, and connect them to other services and resources

The ideal candidate will have:

·   Minimum of AA degree,  BA preferred

·      At least 2 years experience of youth development experience with middle-school age youth, ideally in a school based setting providing enrichment services

·      Familiarity with the Bayview Hunters Point section of San Francisco or similar communities a plus

·      Experience with under resourced communities of color

Other Requirements:

·    Must be comfortable using web based data management tools and online educational tools 

 ·   Proficiency with Microsoft 365, Outlook, Teams, Excel, Word & Calendar required

·    Must possess a mission-driven growth mindset, and a commitment to life long learning

·   Must pass drug screening

·   Must have your own vehicle, safe driving record and valid driver's license

·   Must pass fingerprint and background checks

 ·   Work hours may vary at times, but are generally 10am-6pm, Tuesday - Saturday. Flexibility and reliability is essential

If you are this amazing person, here’s what we have to offer:

·      You’ll start in the early stages of a small growing nonprofit

·      You’ll be part of a dynamic and supportive national network, with a proven, evidence-based mentoring model

·      You’ll have new challenges daily, and we commit to support you in every way, to help you serve our kids and to keep your batteries charged

·      You’ll be part of a friendly and collaborative workplace, where work-life balance is respected

·       Most of all, you’ll play a critical role in helping children who face significant obstacles change the trajectories of their lives!
