Description

This position will primarily involve working with youth at two school sites to improve behavioral school outcomes and to boost student engagement with school and school communities. There are Communities In Schools Site Coordinators at both schools, so the AmeriCorps member will have additional team members to work with. This will be a direct services position and may include some social media outreach to promote activities and programs.

Communities In Schools of Peninsula (CISP) is located on two peninsulas connected by a bridge. Our organization serves students and families in Gig Harbor and on the Key Peninsula. The mission is, “to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.”

The vision is currently undergoing revision to include a more equitable lens and to be inclusive and welcoming. The organization is led by an Executive Director with eighteen years of experience leading the team and the Program Director has fifteen years of experience. Retention and job satisfaction are priorities for our administrative team and there are opportunities to learn and grow into new skills.
