Citywide Out-of-School Time Initiative Coordinator, Managing Director’s Office
This position will sit within the Managing Director’s Office (MDO) which provides oversight of the City’s major operating departments. The MDO provides support, assistance, and coordination to build sustainable infrastructure within and across departments, ensuring the efficient delivery of quality services to the public.
The Citywide Out-of-School Time (OST) Initiative is developing a shared, coordinated and inclusive OST system that reaches ambitious goals on behalf of Philadelphia’s young people. This is a cross-sector, holistic initiative that is working to align various OST efforts from city departments as well as other existing and potential OST stakeholders. The OST Initiative Coordinator is a new position that will be focused on helping to implement Philadelphia’s Citywide OST Initiative. While this new position will report directly to the Citywide OST Initiative Director, s/he will work in
close collaboration with the Department of Human Services’ OST team as well as the other members of the OST Steering Committee.
This is a new phase of work that builds upon current and past investments in Philadelphia’s OST community. This effort is also rooted in the national afterschool systems building work of the Wallace Foundation. The Initiative’s nine-year plan looks to harness the power of all OST stakeholders to realize the full potential of Philadelphia’s OST. The guiding documents for this Initiative can be found here.
