\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan\u003eHome is the foundation for everything in life. Since 1971, our model has been about supporting residents in finding stability and achieving their goals. It\u0026rsquo;s why we\u0026rsquo;re more than housing\u0026mdash;we combine quality affordable homes with our on-site Advantage Services\u0026mdash;because we believe that with the right support and opportunities, all people can thrive. Today, over 13,000 people\u0026mdash;families, seniors, veterans, and people with disabilities and other barriers\u0026mdash;call a CommonBond community \u0026ldquo;home.\u0026rdquo;\u0026nbsp; Our core values are \u003cem\u003eRespect, Integrity, Partnership, Innovation,\u003c/em\u003e and\u003cem\u003e Excellence\u003c/em\u003e. We live these values and look for people who embody them to represent our organization in the community. If this sounds like you, please consider joining our team.\u0026nbsp;\u0026nbsp;\u003c/span\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e\u003cspan\u003eWhy CommonBond Communities?:\u003c/span\u003e\u003c/strong\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eWork-life balance\u003c/span\u003e\u003c/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eCompetitive salary\u003c/span\u003e\u003c/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eEmployee referral program\u003c/span\u003e\u003c/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eComprehensive benefits package\u003c/span\u003e\u003c/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eEmployee recognition and rewards program\u003c/span\u003e\u003c/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eA respectful and growth-oriented workplace\u003c/span\u003e\u003c/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eA chance to make a difference in the community!\u003c/span\u003e\u003c/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eOngoing training and professional development\u003c/span\u003e\u003c/li\u003e\n\u003c/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eCommonBond Communities invites qualified applicants to apply for the Youth Program Coordinator position\u0026nbsp;at our Torre de San Miguel Townhomes property in St. Paul, MN.\u0026nbsp;The Youth Program Coordinator works with Advantage Services staff to design, develop, implement and evaluate youth programs, manage core youth programs, provide overall on-site volunteer management and support overall Advantage Center operations.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eESSENTIAL FUNCTIONS \u003c/strong\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eCoordinate school-year academic support programs for youth in grades K-6.\u003c/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eCoordinate academic enrichment and community exploration activities during summer and school-year breaks.\u003c/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eCollaborate with Academic Coordinator, volunteers, and others to coordinate the implementation of individualized learning goals and intervention plans for youth\u003c/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eInterview, train, and guide staff and volunteers\u003c/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eEngage parents/caregivers through regular communication, family nights, conferences, and other techniques to promote parents/caregivers as the primary leader of their child\u0026rsquo;s education.\u003c/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eFacilitate engagement between parents/caregivers and schools.\u003c/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eFocus on evaluation and continuous quality improvement\u003c/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eWork collaboratively within department and other departments\u003c/li\u003e\n\u003c/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eMINIMUM REQUIREMENTS\u003c/strong\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAvailable to work M-Th 2pm-7pm (minimum)\u0026nbsp;
