The Center for New York City Affairs is an applied public policy research organization based in the Milano School at the New School. The Center offers analysis and solutions to pressing social and economic challenges. In early 2017, the Center launched the Institute for Transformational Mentoring (ITM), a dynamic new training program focused on the development of credible messengers – formerly incarcerated mentors – working in the social services fields throughout New York City. These mentors help young people navigate community violence and avoid the criminal justice system. The Institute was developed in partnership with social service employers and responds to the need for professional development and support for this vital workforce. The Institute also offers a program for young adults that include an intensive summer program and a new year-round training and subsidized work experience for aspiring peer mentors.
The Operations Manager will be responsible for programmatic and administrative logistics. This position is a critical member of a small team where staff members work collaboratively and are often expected to pitch in on a wide range of projects. This position reports to the Program Director of ITM.
This position is funded by and contingent upon external fundraising.
