Strategic Initiatives Coordinator More Than Words
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 More Than Words’ take on new opportunities to achieve strategic goals, grow our youth-run social enterprise businesses, and spread our mission. Serving with the Director of Strategic Initiatives, the Strategic Initiatives Coordinator will grow our Training Institute to teach others across the country about Social Enterprise, develop and pilot strategies to expand our pipeline of high-value books to fuel our business, and responsively take on new projects as a strategic priority is identified. Previous business or training experience isn’t required, but a learning mindset and customer service attitude are! The member will have the opportunity to learn while serving, develop new systems, and see our young people grow first hand, all in a dynamic, fast-based, team-oriented, and supportive environment. This position would be based at our Boston site, but should expect to occasionally spend time at both sites for meetings. A $100 monthly housing reimbursement and a $75 monthly transportation reimbursement are available to members serving at MTW.
