Site Director

Since 2004, the Incentive Mentoring Program (IMP) has been a community working together towards mutual growth. IMP is a non-profit organization that engages underperforming high school students confronting significant barriers outside of the classroom by providing each one with a family of committed volunteers and increased access to community resources. IMP fosters students’ academic advancement and personal growth into self-motivated, resilient and responsible citizens. IMP Students are enrolled in the program for at least eight years. To date, 100% of students have been retained and 100% have graduated from high school (or received an equivalent degree). IMP creates a family of support for everyone, not just the students. We never give up on anyone in the IMP Family.

Position Description

IMP is seeking a Site Director (SD) to operate and manage the IMP site at ACCE ; JHU Homewood. The SD will oversee 200+ undergraduate, graduate, and other volunteers from the Baltimore community to provide tutoring, mentorship, and social services support to IMP students. Reporting to the COO, this position has a minimum two-year commitment to provide continuity for IMP Students and volunteers. The physical and psychological demands of the position can be unpredictable, and the SD must prepare to be available to students and volunteers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to offer support in times of crisis (e.g. a parent losing a job, a domestic dispute, passing of a family member, etc). The need to meet outside of traditional work hours may arise from crisis situations involving the students, but also to accommodate the schedules of IMP volunteers where meetings and other communication are necessary. Actual work schedule will vary from week to week and at times hours are unpredictable, requiring the SD to arrive early or stay late. IMP offers a flexible work schedule and environment, with some opportunity to schedule work hours at home where appropriate. IMP is a nationally recognized social venture looking for passionate individuals to join our dynamic team.
