The Site Director will lead and manage a staff of experienced, high-energy youth workers as a well-balanced team to run both tiers of New City Kids’ program. The Site Director will also keep the highly creative and talented team moving in a coordinated direction. But to be an effective leader of youth leaders, the Site Director must also be a practitioner. They must enjoy being with kids and model what it means to never give up. This will require a missionary zeal for urban children. Finally, the Site Director must be an ambassador for the mission and pro-actively foster relationships with donors who can support the work.
