Effective November 2016
The REACH Center works with nearly 3,000 at-risk youth and young adults ages 16-24 each year to provide them with educational opportunities, career development, peer mentoring, and other supportive services. REACH has a strong track record of leveraging institutional partnerships to serve young people, and coordinates programs that annually place over 500 people in jobs, graduate 50 students on average from GED classes, and provide permanent housing for up to 75 youth experiencing homelessness. REACH is at the forefront of youth development, career readiness, and the fight against youth homelessness in the Greater Puget Sound Region. The work of the REACH Center contributes to positive systems change and has sparked interest in widespread replication of the REACH service delivery model.
The REACH Center is seeking a dynamic and experienced operational leader to work under the supervision of the REACH Center Director to ensure that REACH Center policies, procedures, facilities, and partnerships function to maximum efficiency and impact on behalf of regional youth and young adults. The Deputy Director supervises a talented and dedicated team of intake, outreach, and program coordination staff and manages the logistical operation of REACH and the activities of the many partnering organizations co-located at REACH. The Deputy Director serves as a spokesperson for REACH to the community—including foundations, elected officials, compliance managers, and nonprofit, education, and business leaders—and as lead site supervisor in the absence of the Director. The Deputy Director will also take on special projects related to organizational growth as they become available.
