JOB TITLE: Healing Arts Coordinator
REPORTS TO: Senior Access Center Manager
STATUS: Full Time
Safe Place for Youth (SPY) is the leading service provider for youth experiencing or at-risk of homelessness in West Los Angeles. Founded in 2011, our agency offers trauma-informed, low barrier programs that support young people in exiting the streets and achieving stability so that they can thrive, not just survive.

SPY is a unique social impact agency that is committed to overcoming structural barriers to equity, community collaboration, and innovative youth-focused programming. If you have the skills, passion and collaborative spirit, join our growing team of nearly 60 employees.
ABOUT THE ROLE
A member of the Access Center team, the Healing Arts Coordinator will work at SPY’s Access Center location in Venice to provide services for SPY members experiencing homelessness. The Healing Arts Coordinator will coordinate arts related programming, activities and events, while maintaining a safe and therapeutic art room. The Coordinator will also connect and communicate with SPY youth artists through their own artistic expression and through collaborative art projects.
An exciting aspect of this role will be supporting the restructure of the Access Center’s engagement model into an arts and empowerment center. The ideal candidate will have a strong understanding of direct service to at-risk populations and trauma-informed care. Specific knowledge or experience related to transitional aged youth experiencing homelessness is a plus.
