Service Learning Program Manager


About the organization

buildOn is a not-for-profit organization working to break the cycle of poverty, illiteracy and low expectations through service and education. We’re not a charity, we’re a movement.
In the United States, we run intensive service learning programs in under-resourced, urban high schools in six major cities. Through these programs, buildOn empowers youth to transform their communities through high-impact service. Over the last 27 years, buildOn has empowered more than 100,000 urban youth to contribute more than 2.2 million hours of service that has touched the lives of more than one million people living below the U.S. poverty line. Moreover, 98% of buildOn students graduate high school, and most go on to college.


● In partnership with stakeholders (students, school staff, community partners, etc.), plan and facilitate quality IPARD Service Learning through buildOn’s engagement strategies (i.e. Weekend/Holiday projects, In-class lessons, Ongoing/After-school projects, etc.) to drive student outcomes at partner school(s).
○ Plan, recruit, and work directly with students to lead quality IPARD Service Learning through buildOn’s engagement strategies. The Program Manager is directly responsible for 30% of the goals at a 300/student program.
● Directly manage one (1) staff person including weekly check-ins, performance evaluation process, conducting monthly IPARD evaluations, core competency assessments as well as ongoing coaching and support.


The Service Learning Program Manager works closely with colleagues to plan and execute regional program events. Additionally, the Service Learning Program Manager oversees and leads recruitment and support of students for Immersions (Trek, 36 Hours, and Partnership program) as well as special events, and fund development opportunities in collaboration with other departments.
This is a great opportunity for a mission-driven leader who enjoys working with people and overseeing programs. If you have a history of leading successful teams with measurable results, then join buildOn as we continue to grow and change the world!
