Description

Special Programs Manager will manage program logistics, materials, and community partnerships for our programs and focus primarily on those involved with youth. This position seeks to help youth and individuals feel empowered through learning about construction, helping others, and giving back to the community through construction project-based learning. This position assists in building partnerships with local schools and youth organizations, manages project materials, coordinates build kit assembly with Building Beyond the Walls team and Volunteer Coordinator, and assists with logistics during the event days.

This position can serve remotely and coordinate logistics from home, when necessary. The position will be expected to be out in the field when building relationships and assisting or leading on event days. Most Building Beyond the Walls projects are at our training location or if offsite, they are primarily located throughout northeast Pierce County.

Building Beyond the Walls creates an experience through inclusive hands-on construction skills training that increases confidence and self-reliance. By focusing on projects that give back, we connect individuals more deeply in their communities. Building Beyond the Walls exists to “build community through service”. Hands-on construction training is the conduit we use to connect individuals to each other and their community. We achieve this by bringing strangers together for a common purpose to build a small structure needed in the community. We offer the majority of the programs for free and ask the participants to pay it forward in community service.
