The Program Manager’s primary role is to train, lead, develop, and mobilize a team of school based Program Coordinators and tutors to deliver high quality, effective one-on-one instruction to low performing students.

The Program Manager manages all aspects of program quality, delivery and implementation in up to fifteen schools. The Program Manager directs the day-to- day operations, manages internal and external relationships, coaches and supports tutors, drives processes and strategies to maximize literacy development in students at high risk of failure, and is proficient in analyzing data.

The Program Manager is an inspiring team leader, is goal-oriented and excited by both strategic and on-the-ground work. Program Managers spend 100-120 days a year visiting and leading trainings at school sites. Candidates should be comfortable with spending about 50% of the year in the 9-5 office environment. Travel throughout New York City school sites is required.
