Director, Tri-State Program Engagement

The Director, Tri-State Program Engagement will lead the on-the-ground community education and activation efforts that are the heart and soul of our work. Reporting to the New York Executive Director, this position will be responsible for managing the front-line, community-facing engagement outreach team and helping to build and execute strategies to expand our educational footprint. Ideal candidates are experienced team managers who know how to translate organizational goals into actionable individual development plans. They will also have a strong network in the local tri-state education space – including both school systems and youth-serving CBOs – to help expand One Love’s program reach.


Key Responsibilities and Outcomes

Lead NY Tri-State Program Expansion

    • Build and execute tri-state engagement strategy: working with the Executive Director to develop a strategy that increases One Love’s reach in the NY regional coverage area.
    • Manage a team that executes on the strategy and support large education and community-based partnerships in the area, thereby increasing the One Love presence in the NY tri-state
    • Support ED in the development and execution of a legislative strategy that operates on a national, state, and county level

Manage the Tri-State Engagement Team

    • Direct responsibility for managing the tri-state engagement team: establishing individual plans that align with the overall team goals and strategies, assessing progress against those plans, brainstorming ways to address roadblocks and strategic challenges, and developing professional development plans for each member of the team

    • Create structured opportunities for the team to debrief with each other and share learning that can be filtered back to strategic approaches and plans
    • Comfort managing a team remotely and familiar with developing team communication processes that keep the team tightly linked even when they are not physically together

Increase the number of institutions and organizations that integrate One Love workshops into their required curriculum or program model

    • While young people highly value our program once they’ve experienced it, they are unlikely to choose to participate on their own. Therefore, it’s critical for One Love to develop relationships with public and private schools, as well as CBO partners to increase reach
    • Develop and oversee pilot programs to implement One Love in schools and community-based organizations, with an eye towards long-term plans that deepen engagement with our mission

Establish, build and maintain strong external relationships for One Love
