Program Manager (Full-time)
Location: Los Angeles, CA
Reports to: Executive Director
Start: Spring 2018
The mission of Work is to accompany families in Haiti out of poverty through good, dignified jobs. Work is a nonprofit organization working in Haiti to end poverty one dignified job at a time. We work in one community in Port-au-Prince, called Menelas, where 1,500 families reside. Our goal is simple: to place two heads of households into a good, dignified job so that each family and in turn, their community can pull themselves out of poverty forever.
We start by getting to know our families and learning about their assets and needs. Oftentimes it begins with addressing health concerns, as illness can stand in the way of all other goals. Next, we ensure all school-aged children have access to an education and address basic needs such as debt and housing with their parents. Once family members are work-ready, they enroll into our job preparation program and are trained and placed into dignified work. They receive follow up services such as professional development and access to relevant workshops while we maintain our commitment to accompany them until they no longer need us. www.dowork.org.
Work is seeking a Program Manager to manage our growing programming in Haiti. This team member will be responsible for working with our team to implement and grow our suite of wrap-around services to all Work families. Key to success in this position are the interest and initiative to work in partnership with our families, utilize an asset-based approach to problem solve, and provide strategic investments as a team. This team member will report to our Executive Director.
Our culture is collaborative, entrepreneurial, and fast-paced. We maximize resources to provide the most effective services for our families in Haiti. We're looking for like-minded individuals who will work relentlessly to accompanying our families to independence. The new team member must be an adaptable, positive, and collaborative team player.
