Job Summary: Program Director for New Enrichment Scholarship Program
The high school years are an important time for young people to identify and explore what they are passionate about as they imagine their future after graduation. Unfortunately, many high schoolers who have a passion—whether for science, music, debate, culinary arts, or another pursuit—have limited resources to explore. Universities, cultural institutions, and other organizations offer enrichment programs for teenagers, but it can be challenging for students to find great opportunities on their own. Further, programs often charge tuition, which puts them out of reach for many families.
The Hollyhock Foundation is seeking a full-time program director to design and lead a new program at the foundation that will provide high school students from under-resourced communities in the Greater New York area with support to attend exceptional summer enrichment programs. This is an exciting opportunity for an entrepreneurial leader committed to helping young people achieve their full potential.
The program director will start in summer 2021 and develop this program in preparation for launching it with a pilot cohort of students in summer 2022. The program will serve a growing number of students in the years to come. The program director will focus exclusively on this program within the foundation.
The program director will serve in all respects as the leader and “home base” for this program, including:
-Creating the vision for how to support young people to explore their passions through summer programs.
-Designing a plan to implement the vision, including:
-Leading implementation of the vision, beginning with the first cohort in summer 2022, including:
Compensation is competitive and includes health insurance, travel reimbursement, vacation, family and medical leave.
