Welcomes returning citizens
The Program Manager position is a newly created role that will support Old Pine Community Center’s (OPCC) diverse and growing offering of youth, food, and community programming. In March 2020, OPCC was forced to cancel, postpone, or significantly change all its programs and services due to health and safety restrictions from COVID-19. The organization has used this period as an opportunity – along with a recently completed strategic plan – to comprehensively evaluate our work, identify the true unmet needs in our community, and determine how to best serve our neighbors. This effort is ongoing and the Program Manager will serve in a critical role in that process.
Reporting to the Executive Director, the Program Manager will be responsible for developing, implementing, and evaluating all of the organization’s existing and future programs. Current programs include afterschool care, summer camp, grocery care packages, and daily “to-go” breakfast and lunch meals. Prior to COVID-19, the organization offered in-person weekend meals for seniors and individuals facing food insecurity with plans to restart those services in late 2021/early 2022. This position will not only be focused on maintaining our current services, but also rapidly and strategically developing new programs.
The ideal candidate will have a strong knowledge of the Greater Philadelphia nonprofit and philanthropic sector; experience working with neighborhood associations and faith organizations will be beneficial. The Program Manager must be committed to collaborative decision-making and problem-solving, and building an effective team environment with all staff, volunteers, and partners. This is not a remote, “work from home” position, the Program Manager must be onsite daily with some evening and weekend responsibilities.
The Program Manager must have a bachelor’s or master’s degree from an accredited college or university in early childhood education, child development, special education, elementary education, or the human services field and one (1) year of experience working with children for OPCC to meet the requirements to maintain our Pennsylvania Child Care License. Please do not apply for this position if you do not meet this requirement; your application will not be considered.
Salary & Benefits
The salary for the Program Manager position is $50,000. The successful candidate will receive a generous benefits package that includes medical and dental with 100% employer paid premium; 401(k) retirement plan with up to 3% company match; 15 days of annual PTO; 11 paid holidays; 100% discount on Afterschool and Summer Camp enrollment for one child each year; 100% discount on one site rental each year; and access to a free, private employee parking lot.
Founded in 1977, the mission of Old Pine Community Center is to provide inclusive programs and services that uplift those in need by reducing inequality through the enhancement of education and the elimination of food insecurity. Our goal is to create welcoming and safe spaces for children, adults, seniors and our neighbors for their benefit and the benefit of future generations.
