Riverdale Neighborhood House
$55,000-$65,000, commensurate with experience
Riverdale Neighborhood House (RNH) is a 150-year-old non-profit, providing services and resources to meet the needs of all of our neighbors in the northwest Bronx. Our mission is to strengthen our community in the Northwest Bronx by delivering programs and ensuring access to resources that build bonds, create networks, and promote equity across generational, cultural, racial, and economic lines. Our programs include a pre-school (3K & 4K), after-school enrichment for K-12th grade, a robust teen internship program, summer and vacation camps, community classes, and an older adult telephone reassurance program. In 2021, RNH created the Food & Farm program, made up of an educational garden, community fridge, farmstand, teaching kitchen and monthly food pantry. The program is focused on building food sovereignty and promoting food and environmental justice in the local community.
RNH is seeking a dedicated project manager and community organizer to join the organization as the new Community and Volunteer Program Manager. This position is responsible for overseeing a growing set of social justice initiatives at RNH with a focus on food and environmental justice, including managing the community fridge and pantry program, supervising the Food Justice teen internship, overseeing the garden education program, and developing outreach events to engage the community. The Program Manager will collaborate with other departments and external partners to develop intergenerational programs that have high educational and community impact. The Community and Volunteer Program Manager will also expand the volunteer program for the organization, including creating a volunteer management system, as well as developing volunteer opportunities and events that have meaningful impact in the community. The Community and Program Manager will manage the Garden Coordinator, as well as seasonal employees, volunteers, and interns. This position requires strong organizational skills, an ability to manage multiple projects simultaneously, a passion for education, and an enthusiasm for collaboration. This is a Tuesday through Saturday, full time position.
