Descrição

Position Status: Full-time and at will. One (1) open position.

Closing Date: Positions open until filled.

Salary & Benefits: Annual salary of $64-74K, based on experience; benefits include health insurance, dental plan, paid time off, and retirement plan.

Job Location: Prince George’s County, Maryland. Each of these positions will be assigned to one of VineCorps’ two primary school partner sites: International High School at Largo and International High School at Langley Park (located in Bladensburg). Most work hours will be spent in person at the assigned school. Occasional work hours will be spent in person at shared community spaces in Cheverly and throughout P.G. County, along with periodic program outings and trips further afield.

Work Schedule: The position requires considerable schedule flexibility. Schedules will be established seasonally based on community needs, school realities, and program design. During the school year, “core hours” will generally be set between 10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. Monday – Friday. Occasional “flex hours” earlier, later, and on weekends will be counterbalanced with hours off within the month to average as closely as possible to 40 hours per week. During summer, intensive all-day programming from the first week of July through the second week of August often requires hours beyond 40 hours per week, counterbalanced with time off in June and later August. Paid holidays include all federal holidays plus the Friday after Thanksgiving, the week between Christmas Eve and New Years Day, and one flex day for spring break/Easter/Ramadan/ Passover.

About VineCorps:

VineCorps is a comprehensive youth development organization that builds community hubs of connection, action, and growth for teens in under-served areas of Prince George's County, Maryland. Working closely with youth who contend with challenging circumstances such as low household income, undocumented or uncertain immigration status, English language learning, first-generation college attainment, learning differences, prejudice and discrimination, VineCorps bridges opportunity gaps while promoting health and wellbeing by fostering learning communities of tailored activities, useful tools, and transformative experiences for young people to learn, grow, and thrive in school, at work, and in life. Running year-round, weekly out-of-school time programming since 2011, VineCorps offers personally-tailored educational enrichment, academic support, mentoring, family assistance, service learning, outdoor adventure, pathways to high-quality youth employment, and other crucial life experiences beyond the classroom and workplace — all with relentless encouragement. VineCorps engages young people with numerous ways to come together, explore, contribute, own responsibility, make the most of good opportunities, take the right risks, work through setbacks, navigate transitions, heal and revitalize in community, and realize their own unique potential.

Through all our activities, VineCorps young people cultivate a radical sense of belonging by weaving their lives with connectedness, specifically: (1) close relationships with caring people, (2) active participation in community life, (3) exploration of identity, heritage, and purpose as a meaningful part of something larger than oneself, (4) openness to serious challenge, including discomfort and vulnerability, and (5) extensive networks of accessible support. Together, our youth build mutual support systems capable of meeting needs, overcoming obstacles, and achieving goals that they personally identify.

The signature programs this Coordinator role will directly engage include:

• VineCorps Marigold Centers for Wellbeing at International High School at Langley Park: providing welcoming safe space; programming and curricula focused on nurturing behavioral health and community life; participating with school staff on the student support team.

• VineCorps After-School Programing: educational enrichment, tutoring, and mentoring that provides academic, social-emotional, and community-building supports and post-graduation planning and preparation.

• VineCorps Summer Leadership Adventures Program (SLA): intensive 7 full-time weeks of leadership development programming comprised of challenging service-learning projects and outdoor adventure activities that require substantial preparation, teamwork, and reflection.

About the Role:

The School Site Coordinator is responsible for coordinating all VineCorps programs at the assigned school site and making sure they run well. The Coordinator will lead a team of 3-4 half-time Community Youth Wellness Workers along with a cadre of program volunteers.
