Managing Director of Operations
Originally founded in 1991 as Harlem RBI, DREAM has grown to annually serve more than 2,500 youth across East Harlem and the South Bronx through a network of six PreK-12, extended-day, extended-year DREAM Charter Schools and community sports-based youth development programs. Through our commitment to rigorous academics, social-emotional learning, deep family and community engagement, and health and wellness, we create lifelong learners who are equipped to fulfill their vision of success in and out of the classroom. We dream big, as well, with an aggressive five-year plan to expand to serve 3,500 students across seven schools—growing our organization’s impact and leveling the playing field for all children.

In order to grow and scale with excellence, we recognize the critical importance of strong operational systems across our schools. We are seeking a strategic operational leader who will set a high bar for school operations and will achieve that vision of excellence by managing and building relationships with others. In this new role, the Managing Director of Operations will oversee school operations and is responsible, through direct management of the Director of Facilities and the coaching and mentoring of the Director of Operations (DOOs), for ensuring that our schools operate at the highest level, with systems in place that allow teachers and principals to focus on instruction and academic achievement.
This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced, strategic operational leader to build systems and processes, set a high bar for school operations, and achieve that vision of excellence by managing and supporting a team of DOOs.
