REGIONAL PROGRAM COORDINATOR – Boston

Reporting to the Executive Director, the Boston Regional Program Coordinator will plan and implement the award-winning Budget Buddies financial literacy program in partnership with city social service agencies. (Read more about our program at www.budgetbuddies.org.)

The ideal candidate will have 3-5 years of experience working in the non-profit sector, be well organized, be able to multi-task, and be able to travel to program locations – while sharing an enthusiasm for the Budget Buddies mission of promoting financial literacy and confidence among low-income women. Your work schedule will include one to two hours in the evening a couple of nights each week, but is otherwise flexible.

As a Regional Program Coordinator, you will:
• Work with Budget Buddies staff to identify partnering agencies
• Work with partnering agencies to set program schedules, ensure programs are staffed with a sufficient number of volunteer coaches, and match coaches with participants
• Identify, recruit, and train program volunteers
• Work with Budget Buddies staff to identify and train qualified workshop presenters
• Schedule and facilitate volunteer information meetings, orientations, and trainings for coaches and presenters
• Schedule and facilitate coaches support meetings and provide on-going support and encouragement to coaches

This is a part-time position at approximately 15 hours per week with the opportunity for growth and additional hours over the next year.

Although workshops and meetings will take places at Boston agencies, this position is otherwise remote. Must be able to attend training in Chelmsford for 10-12 hours per week for the first 4-6 weeks.
