Youth Program Manager

Posted by Citizen Diplomacy International on June 15, 2021

As the Youth Program Manager, you should be enthusiastic, creative and detail-oriented, and enjoy working as part of a small, mission-driven team. Our Youth Program identifies, cultivates, and amplifies the talent of Philadelphia while building a worldwide network of Young Citizen Diplomats. Our Youth Programs serve high school and college-aged young people, engaging them in discussions of the most complex and challenging social, political, and scientific issues in our world today.

Following a successful pilot last summer, this role will involve launching and scaling the Citizen Diplomat Academy, a new virtual international exchange, for 400-500 young people in the Greater Philadelphia with the goal of connecting them with 400-500 peers in Sister City Frankfurt, Germany; Sister City Tel Aviv Israel; Egypt; and the United Arab Emirates. Exchange topics focus on STEM entrepreneurship and Social Innovation,  as well as intercultural communication. Young people participate in 4-week long virtual exchanges to build practical skills and global competencies through synchronous and asynchronous activities.  Additional classroom-to-classroom programs may also be coordinated outside of the Academy.

The program goals are to engage diverse youth to (1) expand their understanding of American and different world cultures and global networking;  (2) learn and practice respectful dialogue; identify and respond to bias and stereotypes; (3) hone critical thinking skills and collaborate cross-culturally; (4) prepare for global workforce success; and (5) learn several different pathways successful STEM entrepreneurs have used to bring innovation to the public or Social innovators who have addressed compelling social issues facing their communities or UN SDGs.
