Fight poverty in Upstate South Carolina on our team of 20 and grow as a professional, gaining hands-on nonprofit experience. Our rapidly growing community is recognized with many accolades, but that hasn’t translated to improved conditions for all. Food and housing crises are compounded by systems that keep people from reaching economic independence. Our team members serve at a variety of partner organizations to overcome barriers, improve access, and create vibrant and equitable communities. Moving out of poverty is complex, a multi-year process that requires families to juggle maintaining their health, taking care of their kids, managing their money, gaining post-secondary education or credentials, and moving into a family-sustaining career – all at once. Our team will utilize Mobility Mentoring® practices to provide comprehensive support to families. See position duties for more details on how we meet the need!
