Summary of position
Educational Services Team Members work in a rigorous campaign style leadership nonviolence effort. This position requires comfort with a coaching approach to relationships, personal transformation and social justice. Candidates must have experience with diverse communities (cultures and races other than one’s own). Educational Services team members coordinate the Institute for Community Leadership’s Educational Services leadership team to equip diverse youth with character development and leadership skills necessary for academic, civic and workforce success.
We need emancipators. We need foot soldiers, willing to do the arduous task of getting up earlier, staying up later, and changing. We are looking for warriors willing to suit-up personal change for social change. Most of our spiritual traditions honor conversion. Most abiding wisdom is recognized to come from something greater than, and outside of the self. That’s why we’re looking for individuals who want to change.
Educational Services Team Members develop relationships, resources, and power with students, school personnel and community members, in tune with values and principles of nonviolence and civil rights. Ethical leadership coaching provides a framework for self-change, as team members develop the capacity to both give and receive coaching with the students, and with other team members. Responsibilities focus on transporting students, phone calling, attending events with the students, home and school visits. Staff also participate in community and public events together with students and parent volunteers.
Maintenance of records, documentation of expenses, program reporting, program outcome documentation and other office related responsibilities are also a part of the job. There will always be other duties as assigned for the successful carrying out of the Educational Services area of Institute programming.
