We are looking for someone who is passionate about finding solutions and working with others to continuously improve the Reach Up program. We use the mission and vision of the program to help drive our work. Understanding the systems that keep people from reaching their full potential, and having a strong desire and drive to change them, is a must. If you can handle elation, disappointment, joy, frustration, excitement, and fun all in one day, and see all of these things as part of your job satisfaction, this might be the right place for you! The work changes quickly, and requires flexibility, initiative, and an overall positive attitude to do it well. As a team we care deeply about each other as people and professionals, and we're looking forward to inviting a new member to the team with fresh perspectives and the same passion for the work we share.
