Red Hook Initiative Has Two Positions: Adolescent Program Manager and an Education Specialist

The Red Hook Initiative (RHI) seeks a full-time Adolescent Program Manager and a part-time Education Specialist.

The Adolescent Program Manager guides the adolescent school team (grades 6th-12th) to support youth (10 to 18-year-olds) to achieve their goals within the areas of education, employment, and personal development. The Adolescent Program Manager will maintain a bird’s eye view of the program’s overall performance, troubleshooting barriers for youth or for the youth team in achieving program outcomes. Additionally, the Adolescent Program Manager will support case management from a strengths-based perspective.

The Education Specialist will work closely with middle school and high school scholars who are participants in RHI’s academic programs.

RHI has nurtured young people in Red Hook, Brooklyn, to be inspired, resilient and healthy, and to envision themselves as co-creators of their lives, community and society. Dozens of participants in RHI programs have returned to RHI as staff and have jump-started careers in youth development from there.
