Youth Intake and Recruitment Coordinator More Than Words
More Than Words (MTW) supports youth who are in the foster care system, court involved, homeless, or out of school to take charge of their lives by taking charge of a business. Youth work two paid jobs at MTW: in our $2M bookselling business learning critical skills and a “YOU Job” where they advance personal goals in education, work, and life. MTW is in the midst of a game-changing expansion in the South End of Boston, growing to take over the first floor of our building with a new bookstore, marketplace, and community event space, and serve 60% more youth. In this project, the AmeriCorps VISTA member will help expand the opportunity to attend MTW to more youth by engaging new partners and build a recruitment and intake system for new youth applicants to accommodate the larger volume. Working with the Associate Director of Recruitment and Government Contracts, the Youth Intake and Recruitment Coordinator will develop and pilot improvements to our intake system and connect with new sources for youth referrals to our program. The member will have the opportunity to learn while serving, develop new systems, gain highly useful recruitment and program management skills, and see our young people grow first hand, all in a dynamic, fast-based, team-oriented, and supportive environment. This position could be based at either our site in Boston or Waltham depending on the location of the Member, but should expect to spend time at both sites as well as offsite events throughout Greater Boston. The member should be prepared to serve a schedule may include a day on the weekend to support engaging with referral partners and youth intake. A $100 monthly housing reimbursement and a $75 monthly transportation reimbursement are available to members serving at MTW.
