I’ve been in the after school and summer learning field for more than 15 years. I started with internships and line staff positions. I eventually became a Site Coordinator and continued to advance in the Expanded Learning field. I’ve been an advocate and a technical assistance provider, and now I’m privileged to be fundraising for an advocacy and capacity building organization focused on Expanded Learning. In each of these roles I’ve observed the opportunity provided by public moments. Like the Expanded Learning time equivalent of Back to School Night, “Lights on Afterschool” provides a powerful public moment for after school programs.
PCY seeks to fill the Technical Assistance (TA) Manager position within our Program Department. A successful candidate is a strong relationship builder, holds a deep understanding of positive youth development theory and practice, and is eager to learn. Ideal candidates should have experience providing direct service to children and youth, and leadership experience managing staff and outside partners.
This week I will be presenting a workshop at Dare to Disrupt: The National Conference on After School and Summer Learning. My workshop is called Responsive Coaching Conversations that Empower Staff. It is part of the conference strand on Staff, Leadership, and Management.
