OverviewPowerful Voices is looking to hire an AmeriCorps member who will serve as the program AmeriCorps member to the Employment Coordinator in leading our employment readiness programs. Powerful Voices offers three employment programs per year, two of which culminate in youth-led social justice projects.  Annually, this member will support programs that employ up to 39 young people who identify as girls of color, ages 14-18, from low income communities to meet critical employment readiness and paid experience needs. These young people all live or go to school in Seattle with a focus on the West, South, and Central District. Most if not all participants have been or are being impacted by violence in some way and we work closely but not exclusively with the Seattle Youth Violence Prevention Initiative (SYVPI) for program referrals. In each program, young folks are paid a $500-$600 stipend for a six-to-twelve week program. They will meet two to three times a week as a whole group, in addition to having two to three one-on-one meetings with staff to set goals, discuss areas of growth, give and receive feedback, and review job expectations and progress.  

The employment programs emphasize the cultivation of positive girl* culture by working to build a trusting and supportive team with other girls* and women*. Our curriculum is grounded in research of best practices in prevention and youth development fields, designed to be gender specific, strengths-based, prioritize youth leadership and voice, and create brave spaces for young people to explore, share, learn, and grow.  We dive into team building, identity, personal values, positive girl culture, healthy relationships, racism, sexism, homophobia, adultism, and employment readiness skills.  These opportunities develop employable, concrete skills such as public speaking, project management, organization, facilitation, and resume creation.  Young folks also practice soft skills such as communication, teamwork, self-expression, and the value of using one’s voice to communicate ideas and opinions so that they can apply their learning and growth to other experiences in their life.

To ApplyPlease see Employment AmeriCorps Member Announcement for instructions. In addition, please send cover letter and resume ASAP to info@powerfulvoices.org. This position is open until filled!
