Who We Are:
FoodCorps believes every school should be a healthy school and every child – regardless of race, place or class – deserves to be well nourished and ready to learn. In underserved communities across the country, our AmeriCorps leaders teach students about healthy food through hands-on lessons, partner with farmers and food service workers to create nutritious and delicious school meals, and collaborate with communities to ensure a long-term culture of health. Building on this foundation of direct impact, FoodCorps pursues systemic strategies that will benefit all of our nation’s 100,000 schools.
What We’re Looking For:
FoodCorps seeks a motivated and passionate individual to lead, coach, and support a cohort of 12-15 FoodCorps service members and FoodCorps programming in California under the direction of the California Program Director. The Program Coordinator will play a critical role in the delivery of high quality, high fidelity programming statewide by assisting with the training and ongoing coaching to service members, the selection and management of service sites, and the day to day program administration tasks. They will have experience leading young teams and be excited to support new, pre-professional leaders. The ability to learn, adapt, and work through ambiguity will be important in this role! Successful candidates will be mission-driven with a passion for national service.
This position will work in tandem with another California Program Coordinator to support programming throughout the state. This is a full time position with a flexible home base within the state. The role requires frequent in-state and occasional out of state travel, including regular visits to the Oakland, California field office.
Who You Are:
You are passionate about FoodCorps’ mission, and excited about the prospect of coaching and supporting emerging leaders to implement high quality programs in schools across the state. You have a commitment to diversity and inclusion with a desire to work for health equity and social and racial justice. You are a creative problem-solver with demonstrated leadership ability who is adept at coaching and supporting diverse individuals, both in person and remotely. You are thoughtful and compassionate, with the ability to handle technical, personal, and interpersonal challenges—professionally and with care. You approach challenges with a solutions-oriented perspective. You have impeccable attention to detail and thrive in a deadline driven environment. You thoroughly complete tasks assigned to you and are able to seamlessly manage multiple projects at the same time. You are known for your enthusiasm as well as your “no task too small” attitude, which is necessary for our fast-growing, creative, entrepreneurial organization. You are comfortable with ambiguity and eager to collaborate with FoodCorps as we build a high impact service program nationwide.
