Programs Lead – Seeking Qualified Applicants

Programs Lead – Seeking Qualified Applicants

At St. Louis BWorks we believe that everyone deserves the chance to be more and to gain the skills they need to pursue their dreams. We believe that children ­ or any young person for that matter ­ can thrive when they have the opportunity to challenge their abilities in a safe, supportive environment.
St. Louis BWorks is currently accepting resumes to fill the role of Programs Lead, a teaching position that helps St. Louis BWorks, a 501(c)(3) organization, accomplish our mission.

The ideal candidate has a background in elementary education and experience working in the nonprofit sector. Applicants must be passionate, motivated, and flexible, as this role requires the ability to articulate program objectives to a wide array of individuals and operational needs may change quickly. This position is based out of BWorks’ Soulard location but requires travel to partner organizations in the St. Louis Metro area.

Where Do Our Student Come From – Everywhere!

mapWe have just completed plotting the location of each student who participated in one or more of our class programs over the past 12 months, these classes include BikeWorks’ Earn-A-Bike, BookWorks’ Create-A-Book, and ByteWorks’ Earn-A-Computer.

These classes are available at no cost at the BWorks home location at 2414 Menard in Soulard as well as a number of off-site remote locations indicated by the orange flags.

Each student is indicated by a pin and the off-site remote locations for our programs by a flag – the data is between February of 2015 and February of 2016.

We also appreciate all those of you who have supported BWorks and our kids programs through your donations and time.

Thanks – BWorks Staff, Volunteers and Students.
