Description

Everyday Boston and the East Boston YMCA are partners of Social Capital Inc and the SCI AmeriCorps program. At Everyday Boston and the East Boston YMCA, we are looking for 1 member to serve as a Youth Leadership Coordinator. Time will be split serving these two organizations. Your office will be at the East Boston YMCA. You will report to two supervisors.

The East Boston YMCA (founded 15 years ago) is the anchor service organization in East Boston, providing childcare, after
school support, teen programs, health and wellness opportunities, food service, and support for parents and elders.
Everyday Boston is an all-volunteer, grassroots organization missioned with tackling stereotypes and segregation in the city
through programs that encourage curiosity and connection. We do this in three main ways: by training Bostonians to seek out,
listen to, and publish online the stories of neighbors they might not already know; by organizing city-wide story-sharing events;
and by running youth programming.

Youth Leadership Coordinators will serve as leaders to a youth council, increase the capacity of host sites to implement social
capital building, youth engagement and community service-learning as strategies to achieve high educational outcomes.
● Implement the SCI Youth Leadership Curriculum through a Youth Council program and/or another youth leadership
development program. At Everyday Boston, the YLC will recruit 15 youth to participate in a story ambassador program,
training youth to interview, seek out and publish the stories of Bostonians, and to promote curiosity and connection
through creative campaigns. At the East Boston YMCA, the YLC will recruit a separate 15 youth to participate in a Youth
& Government Program focused on guiding youth in researching community challenges, examining policies and
learning the legislative process amongst other forms of community change, meeting political officials, and taking direct
action on challenges that impact their communities.

Youth Leadership Coordinator Objectives:
- 1 corps member trains a core of 20+ youth
- Youth Leadership Training, Community Service Learning
- Youth Run Mini-Grant Cycle (funded by SCI)
- Each core youth group engages 100 youth in community service learning (CSL) and 200 youth in other civic activities
- 85% of core participants will express commitment to future civic participation
- 80% of core participants will demonstrate leadership skills
