Position Summary
The Director of Workforce and Education will lead the development and management of integrated education and workforce development programming at **MEMBERS ONLY**SIGN UP NOW***.. Enabling each **MEMBERS ONLY**SIGN UP NOW***. participant’s unique journey towards gainful employment, the newly integrated Workforce and Education Program will include a suite of complementary coursework, programming, and staff. The Program will directly provide both educational skills (including ESOL) and workforce preparation and training geared toward specific industries – made possible, in part, by sustained partnerships with government agencies (city, state, federal), employer businesses, and private funders. As a member of **MEMBERS ONLY**SIGN UP NOW***.’s management team, the Director’s ongoing planning and management will weave Workforce and Education services into other **MEMBERS ONLY**SIGN UP NOW***. programming. Reinforcing this cross-agency integration, the Director of Workforce and Education will also oversee **MEMBERS ONLY**SIGN UP NOW***.’s Family Childcare Network and its Coordinator (as childcare is a focal area in **MEMBERS ONLY**SIGN UP NOW***.’s workforce training). Key qualifications include experience in workforce and training-related program development and oversight; adult education strategies; and management of talented staff and external partnerships. The ideal candidate will be a creative and evidence-based thinker, a collaborator, and will have skills and passion for growth and expansion.
Agency & Program Background
**MEMBERS ONLY**SIGN UP NOW***. is a multi-service agency working in partnership with families as they move up and out of poverty. We do this by being a catalyst for change in the lives of families and in the systems that keep them poor; developing and providing family support solutions for homelessness and poverty; and advocating for just public policies that strengthen families.
Located in Boston’s Dudley Street neighborhood, **MEMBERS ONLY**SIGN UP NOW***. is at the forefront of efforts in the city to move families beyond homelessness and poverty. It was founded in 1981 by the Little Sisters of the Assumption who first settled in the Dudley Street area in 1947 to live and work with the neighborhood families. In the 1980s when family homelessness became a crisis in Boston and the state, the Sisters opened their doors and welcomed families to stay with them, and **MEMBERS ONLY**SIGN UP NOW***. was launched. Once best known as a family shelter, today **MEMBERS ONLY**SIGN UP NOW***. offers an array of services, including shelter and housing support services, to assist families, especially low-income single mothers, in gaining the resources and skills to overcome their impoverished circumstances.
