Who We Are:
Founded in 1992, After-School All-Stars (ASAS) is a national non-profit organization that provides free, daily after-school programs to over 72,000 children in need on nearly 350 school sites in 19 chapters across the U.S. Offering daily programs that combine academic, enrichment, and health and fitness activities, ASAS is responding to America’s high school dropout, youth obesity, student empowerment and economic crises.

ASAS launched programs in Philadelphia in October of 2014 and is currently operating in two schools under a 21st Century Community Learning Centers grant.

What We Need:
Reporting to the Program Director, the Site Coordinator (SC) plays a critical role in helping ASAS Philadelphia achieve its mission of providing comprehensive after-school programs that keep children safe and help them succeed in school and in life. The SC will be responsible for managing the daily operations of an ASAS Philadelphia after-school program at one of our local school sites to ensure that the educational, behavioral and financial objectives of the program and the needs of the staff, youth, families and public are met. The ideal candidate will be instrumental in ensuring safe operation of an ASAS Philadelphia after-school program and facility as well as effective educational programming for participating students.

What You’ll Do:
•Maintain regular communication with school administrators, teachers, program participants and other stakeholders to promote awareness of ASAS’ mission and goals, alignment between specific activities and program goals, and foster good relations between after-school and school-day staff.
•Manage program staff and volunteers, conducting regular observations, sharing feedback and identifying areas for professional development.
•Oversee site operations and budget to ensure that staff receive needed materials, supplies and preparation time.
•Design program activities that support program goals and incorporate the needs and interests of program participants, their families and the broader community, including field trips and culminating events.
•Provide opportunities for program participants to expand their knowledge of their community and showcase their learning.
•Ensure site compliance with policies to achieve program goals and meet needed requirements, including safety, emergency, recordkeeping and reporting procedures.
•Use program data and other tools to assess the effectiveness of program activities and guide staff in program improvement.
•Communicate with families about ASAS, and individual participants’ strengths, successes, achievements and progress.
