Looking for Work? Part Time position with High School Girls

Anne over at the IWD sent me word that they are looking for a Part Time Program Coordinator with the Young Women's Program for High School Girls with the Initiative for Women with Disabilities. Just completing its first year, the program received a Christopher Reeve Quality of Life Foundation Grant. I know first hand of some of the talent and skills the girls in this program have. Anne spoke at a panel I organized for a Feminist Organizing Course and we were able to connect one of the girls in her program with the Willie Mae Rock Camp. Turns out, this teen girl was an amazing singer and lyricist and rocked the house.

This part time position (17 ½ hours a week) includes full benefits, vacation, competitive salary. Details below.
