Posted by PHENND on October 3, 2023

PHENND is pleased to invite public schools in Philadelphia to apply for a Community Partnerships Coordinator PHENND Fellow VISTA position for a start date of August 2024. The PHENND Fellow VISTAs will coordinate and facilitate partnerships between the host school and existing and/or potential outside community partners with the goal of well integrating services into the school’s schedule and meeting major school needs, thereby ensuring that these partnerships are mutually beneficial, sustainable and serving students effectively.

A complete job description of the Community Partner Coordinator position, a list of Frequently Asked Questions, can be found here.

This will be the 11th year of this program; we are hoping to select 5-6 schools to add to our roster of hosts. The most successful candidates will clearly articulate in their application how they will use the Community Partnerships Coordinator VISTA position to help them achieve their school improvement objectives.

Final decisions will be determined by the end of January by the review committee, which includes representatives from PHENND’s advisory board and staff as well as the School District of Philadelphia’s Office of Strategic Partnerships.
