Community Playground Build Manager (Remote, Market Based - Oakland, California)


About the organization

KABOOM! is the national nonprofit committed to ensuring that every kid, in every community, has an amazing place to play. Our mission is to end playspace inequity – the reality that playspaces are not available to every child, especially in communities of color. We unite with communities to build kid-designed playspaces that can spark joy and foster a sense of belonging for the kids who are often denied opportunities to thrive.


What Makes a Good Candidate:

If you love being outside, working with people, and leading events, the Community Playground Build Manager position at KABOOM! just might be what you have been looking for.

Community Playground Build Managers are critical to the KABOOM! mission. They travel across the country leading inspiring playground build events in partnership with community and funding partner volunteers. Each playground project starts as a flat, empty surface and is transformed into an exciting, new playspace for kids to enjoy in just one day! Community Playground Build Managers are the on-site leaders of this transformation.

If this challenge sounds exciting to you, you could very well be our newest Community Playground Build Manager.
