Hey — our first jobs and engagement fair is on April 19.


THE MISSION: “to cultivate leadership in queer Latin@ communities by empowering and teaching the skills and tools to communities most affected to fight, organize and advocate for themselves”

THE JOB: Executive Director

It’s been a big year for GALAEI: Last spring, the social justice org for queer Latinos moved from the Gayborhood to Norris Square in West Kensington. “For us, it was an obvious and essential move,” Elicia Gonzales, the former executive director, told us at the time. “We needed to be in community, in a neighborhood that was very heavily Latino, in an area that does not have any services for queer people. We knew that doing so would be really game changing for Philadelphia.”

Gonzales was with the organization for over six years, so there are some big shoes to fill here. Have a passion for offering peer-based public health programming serving lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, knowledge of Latin@ community issues in Philadelphia and experience working with both? You might be the one to fill them.

THE ORG: Resources for Human Development

THE MISSION: “to empower people as they achieve the highest level of independence possible, building better lives for themselves, their families and their communities”

THE JOB: Resource Coordinator (full-time)

This nonprofit covers the gamut of human services — behavioral health, youth development,  returning citizens and addiction recovery, to name a few. It also operates One Step Away, the street paper aimed at raising awareness of homelessness and providing employment to those in need.

From our Partners

RHD is looking for someone to support its programming by helping consumers find “natural community supports and available psychiatric, medical, social, residential, financial services and other services appropriate for the consumer.”

THE ORG: Need in Deed

THE MISSION: “to use the classroom to prepare young people for civic responsibility and service to others, enabling them to become capable, contributing members of society” 

THE JOB: Associate Director

Serving-learning nonprofit Need in Deed has learned a lot about effectively serving students and simultaneously making its work sustainable in the past few years. The associate director would continue to develop the org’s mission as COO, leading fundraising efforts and overseeing major organizational and programmatic events. Applicants must be “intellectually curious” — a trait surely required of the students being served. We love an organization that practices what it preaches.
