Job description

Duties: This position will work alongside the Site Director to coordinate the Out-of-School Time (OST) program for Elementary and Middle school-aged students as well as support the overall development of UACS programs at Comegys Elementary School during the school day and afterschool. The OST program will offer academic, cultural and recreational enrichment programming. Academic programming includes collaboration with the school day to support homework and coursework, and particularly includes enrichment activities that support learning across the core subjects through problem-based learning and community development activities.

A major component of the position includes supervising the OST program's PT staff and university student workers and volunteers and supporting their delivery of effective instruction and programming. This position will also implement all required program reporting and compliance, including that of funders and the Netter Center. The position will work very closely with the UACS staff to implement cross-grade programs, Penn ABCS classes and Penn students engaged through academic internships, work-study and volunteers.

Qualifications: A Bachelor's Degree and 3 years to 5 years of experience or equivalent combination of education and experience is required. Strong experience with community schools, preferably university-assisted community schools, and service learning, preferably academically based community service and youth workforce development. Knowledge about Penn and West Philadelphia preferred. Experience in facilitating successful youth development programs, collaborative endeavors, and managing multiple programs at once. Track record of both self-directed and team-oriented accomplishments. Organized, detail-oriented, accurate, dependable, and flexible. A major component of the Netter Center's work is mobilizing the vast resources of the University to help transform traditional neighborhood schools into innovative university-assisted community schools (UACS). University-assisted community schools educate, engage, empower, and serve all members of the community in which the school is located. At the same time, working with community members to create and sustain university-assisted community schools provides a powerful means for universities to advance teaching, research, learning and service, as well as the civic development of their students. University-Assisted Community Schools engage students (K-16+) in real world, community problem solving.
