Program Coordinator

Job purpose
The Philadelphia Project (TPP) deploys 1500+ volunteers and over a dozen interns across Northwest Philadelphia each year. We are looking for an organized individual to join our team to coordinate various aspects of our program. The coordinator will coordinate our service sites throughout the year. This includes maintaining relationships with our church partners, homeowners, children’s ministry partners, and our nonprofit “mercy” partners. It also includes helping to develop new service sites and partners to accommodate our increasing numbers of volunteers. Working under the direction of the Trip & Intern Manager, s/he will identify, coordinate, and oversee multiple concurrent service projects for a variety of ages, group sizes and abilities on all days that groups serve with TPP. When groups are serving with us, the Coordinator will be the point-person for the beginning part of the day—ensuring that groups get up, get fed, get to their ministry sites—and coordinate the service sites throughout the workday (groups typically serve from 9-3). The Coordinator will also coordinate our outreach events in partnership with our church partners. Currently these happen at least 1 per week during the Summer of Service. S/He will also assist with the marketing of our programs, particularly for intern and group recruiting goals.
The Coordinator will also further our mission to ‘partner with the local church’ by joining the team at one of TPP’s Partner Churches and serve about 8-10 hours per week. As a part of the interview and onboarding process, we will collaboratively determine the church and best area of ministry to serve in based on the coordinator’s gifts and the church’s needs.
Currently, the Philadelphia Project hosts 7 “blitz weekends” throughout the year, 3-4 weeks of college alternative spring breaks, various days of service and our flagship program, our 7-week Summer of Service. We have partnerships with Roxborough Church, Wissahickon Church, and Church of the Atonement.
