Coordinator of Enrichment Programs – One to World (New York, NY)
Company: One to World
Title: Coordinator of Enrichment Programs
Salary: TBD, Full-time
Location: New York, NY
One To World, Inc. is a private, not-for-profit membership organization which links New York City with the rest of the world through an array of educational services and outreach programs. Dedicated to the promotion of global understanding, One To World creates opportunities for cultural, social, and intellectual interchange between international visitors–students, scholars, trainees, and their families–and residents of the New York metropolitan area. Programs are typically in-person, but due to the ongoing pandemic, many have been transitioned online. One To World serves as the officially-designated coordinator of enrichment programs for visiting Fulbright scholars in New York and is a nationally and internationally recognized leader in providing substantive and innovative educational programming.
The Coordinator of Enrichment Programs is part of a 3-person team that is responsible for planning and implementing cultural enrichment programs and events for international students and visiting Fulbright grantees.
THE ROLE & WHAT YOU’LL DO
In this role, you will have the opportunity to develop and implement programs for New York area international university students and Fulbright grantees, including career development programs, volunteer activities, home hospitality visits, behind-the-scenes tours and site visits, receptions and special events. Due to the ongoing pandemic, many of the programs have been transitioned online so creativity is key in program planning moving forward.
As part of program planning in this role, you are also expected to maintain and develop program partnerships with cooperating institutions, organizations, and community groups. While we are not offering many in-person programs that the Coordinator would typically accompany the participants on (often on weekends and evenings) to provide leadership and promote interaction/cross-cultural exchange, you will still be expected to facilitate or co-facilitate online programs that take place throughout the week.
All One To World programming follows a typical cycle that includes:
· Program Marketing and Recruitment:
− create and coordinate distribution of electronic program announcements (i.e. e-blasts, mail merges, and bi-weekly newsletters)
− manage online registration process and database entry
− ensure that programs are filled to capacity whenever possible
· Post-program follow-up:
− distribute/summarize evaluations; produce internal and external reports
− prepare thank-you correspondence
One To World attends new student orientations throughout the year (mostly in early fall and spring). In this role, you will prepare new student orientation sessions and materials, and deliver presentations at campus orientations and fairs. Most presentations will take place online during Spring 2021.
Other responsibilities include:
· Co-manage part-time graduate intern
· Manage/maintain student and scholar database; produce statistical reports
· Prepare and oversee program budgets; maintain detailed financial records
· Assist in preparing funding requests, proposals and final reports to funders
Most importantly, we are looking for a candidate who is eager and enthusiastic about working with international students and scholars. During this unprecedented time where much of our programming has been transitioned online for the first time in the organization’s 40+ year history, we are excited to welcome aboard a new team member with creative ideas and passion for cross-cultural exchange that can help us thrive in this new chapter. We are temporarily (until Summer 2021) a remote organization so organizational skills, communication skills, attention to detail and multi-tasking skills are highly important in this role. Other qualities we look for in a candidate include:
- Bachelor’s degree or Master’s (preferred)
- Previous administrative experience (especially event planning/coordination and/or programming for international students)
- International work, study, or living experience
- Proficiency in Microsoft Office
- Experience with e-marketing tools like Constant Contact and fluency with social media platforms (especially Facebook, Instagram, & Twitter) a plus
