Hoops and Homework, a licensed afterschool and summer program dedicated to expanding opportunities for underprivileged kids in Framingham, is looking for a Program Director. The individual will be involved in all aspects of the organization including supervision of staff at our two centers and will report to the Executive Director.
Hoops and Homework is a safe and nurturing neighborhood-based afterschool program which expands opportunities for youth in Framingham. The vision of Hoops and Homework is that all children in Framingham, regardless of income or neighborhood, will have the support and guidance they need to succeed in school and in life. We believe there is a need for afterschool services in the neighborhoods where children live and that in the neighborhood setting we can create a positive social and learning environment where all children can succeed.
The Program Director is a new, full time position that will have responsibility for creating educational content with the executive director and Board as well as coordinate 4-5 part time staff at both the Interfaith and Pusan Road sites. More than half of the time will be spent in planning and coordination of staff and volunteers but will include some time directly with children. Initially, the Program Director will directly supervise the Pusan Road site with staff support. The afterschool program is 3-6 pm with a 1 pm start on early release days and is 1-5 during the summer program. While overall hours can be flexible, direct participation in after school hours is necessary.
Develop an appropriate curriculum and plan activities that are consistent with the needs of the children and within the mission of the program. Ensure that the program is current with all licensing requirements and that all health and safety procedures are followed.
Recruit, hire, develop, and schedule direct personnel and volunteers as needed. Review and evaluate staff performance. Develop strategies to motivate staff and achieve goals.
Assist in financial management of budgeting, purchasing, and accounts payable as it relates to children program.
