You will lead the admissions process for the City Year Providence site, while collaborating with our regional admissions team in the hiring of AmeriCorps members for our entire East Region (Boston, Buffalo, New Hampshire, New York, Philadelphia, Providence, and Washington, DC). You will implement a comprehensive admissions process, with responsibility for front-line relationship management and customer service for our applicants, and for establishing resilient and effective partnership with Providence site colleagues. You will serve as part of our Recruitment and Admissions department, a national network of professionals working each year to recruit and hire 3,000 incredible young people to serve in schools in 29 communities across the country.
The primary functions of your job will be to:
Implement City Year’s Admissions Process. You will organize and conduct applicant interviews, review and assess applications, make selections decisions, and support placement and preparation of City Year AmeriCorps members at your home site (Providence). You will implement this set process effectively and proactively seek to improve the process over time.
Model Excellence in Customer Service. You will communicate with responsiveness, consistency, and clarity to deepen applicants' connection to City Year.
Exhibit Commitment to All City Year Applicants. City Year recruits and attracts a diverse applicant pool, ages 18-25.

You will display a commitment to continuously learn and grow in ensuring the admissions process is equitable for all applicants.
