La Comunidad que Construimos empowers Peruvian kids through an after-school program designed to build their self-esteem, giving them the confidence and positive self-image needed to take control of their own futures.
We believe ending poverty starts with empowerment. In our Young Leaders Program, kids become teachers who instruct foreign volunteers in Peruvian history and customs, making them proud of who they are by taking pride in where they’re from.
We’re looking for a conscientious self-starter excited about being part of our small nonprofit’s growth. The Program Coordinator works closely with the Programs Director to plan and facilitate our Young Leaders Program.
Responsibilities of the Program Coordinator include:
Assist Program Director with daily program execution (i.e. help managing large group of kids, provide translation for non-Spanish speaking volunteers);
Assist volunteers in their preparation to teach in the program (i.e. help them purchase necessary supplies);
Network with and recruit local experts to speak in the program on cultural themes;
Coordinate monthly field trips based on cultural themes;
Track program metrics of children’s self-esteem to measure program effectiveness.
