TASP Program Coordinator - Academics
TNDC’s Tenderloin After-School Program (TASP) is a community-based youth center serving amazing, funny, curious, hardworking, resilient children between the ages of 5 and 18. TASP is committed to providing the highest quality programming and services to our very energetic, diverse, and fun-loving family of youth. Here at TASP we work hard, always look for ways to improve, and put the needs of our participants first. Being a successful part of this team requires discipline, creativity, self-reflection, and lots of energy. The more you put into this work, the more you will get back.
TASP has two Program Coordinators (Academics and Activities) who, under the guidance of the Manager, are responsible for overall planning and implementation of engaging, age appropriate daily programming. Creativity, efficient research skills, strong writing skills, and an eye for fun are all required for this work.
The Program Coordinator - Academics has two other key responsibilities which overlap: School Liaison and Volunteer Coordinator. As School Liaison, you will serve as Lead Staff for our daily Homework Program, helping participants to build skills and develop discipline. You will also interface with K-8 school site personnel on behalf of TASP participants and parents/guardians. A dedicated and effective team of volunteers is key to a successful homework program, so recruitment, supervision, and training must be well managed by this Coordinator.
