City Year, Inc. – New York

Posted on August 6, 2018

For a new Special Projects Director who will manage, support, and coordinate the people and resources needed to plan for, implement and evaluate three capacity-building projects that will allow them to improve their service: 1) adopt a standardized literacy tutoring curriculum; 2) enhance the pre-service training for their AmeriCorps members; and 3) build a year-long professional development plan for staff members on the Impact team, the front line managers for AmeriCorps members and staff at partner schools. City Year is a national educational nonprofit that partners with NYC Schools, mobilizing teams of young, energetic AmeriCorps Members who commit a year to work full-time in the City’s most under-resourced schools. They identify 3rd through 9th grade students who are off-track in three critical areas — attendance, behavior, and course performance — and offer tutoring, mentoring and enrichment activities to help these students get back on track toward academic and life-long success.
