Job Information:

Take equal parts life coach, social entrepreneur and community organizer and mix them with a heaping respect for diversity  for the perfect fit for Kids on Course. We are looking for two Site Managers, one to lead the program at an elementary school and another to lead the program at a middle school. These dynamic self-starters will oversee the program serving about 150 kids at each school. These are demanding and rewarding positions. Each day you'll work within a school that has a disproportionate number of children living in or near poverty and your job is giving them room to dream, reasons to hope and opportunities galore for a future they construct. Kids on Course provides schools with a champion for children and we do whatever it takes to put them on a path to college graduation. The job is different every day and demands a compassionate self-starter with impeccable time management skills. The work of the Site Manager includes doing home visits with families, mentoring students, coordinating after-school enrichment activities, enrolling students in tutoring, working closely with school staff and district leaders and running a portion of the summer school program.

 Successful Candidates will have:
  • A love of working in teams and the ability to also be able to get the job done independently
  • Degree or certificate from a post-secondary institution, preferably a four-year college degree
  • Valid driver’s license, reliable vehicle and clean driving record 
  • Experience with teaching and supporting elementary or middle school aged children 
  • Passion for diversity
  • A belief that you can create positive, lasting change for a community one family at a time
  • Computer Skills: Mastery of Email communication and Microsoft Word
  • Bilingual candidates in Spanish, French, Swahili and/or Kirundi are strongly encouraged to apply
  • Ability to lift and carry 40 pounds


Compensation range is $31,000 – $35,000 plus health/dental insurance, 401K and paid time off. Hours are typically  8:30AM – 5:30PM Monday through Friday, with occasional weekends and evenings, year-round.
