Greater Cincinnati YMCA Seeks Director of Afterschool Programs: Up to $52,500; Oversees 28 City Schools

CINCINNATI (TDB) -- For some reason, the Greater Cincinnati YMCA has not yet posted the job opening on its local website. The application deadline is Feb. 28 and the salary range is $41,967 to $52,500. The Daily Bellwether got a tip from the state officials in Columbus, who asked that word of the Cincinnati job opening be spread. Here's the complete text -- including name and e-mail of whom to contact -- of the YMCA's help wanted notice:

"As a greenhouse for youth and community development initiatives for the YMCA of Greater Cincinnati, the Community Services YMCA (CSY) leads a network of youth development agencies, school leaders and citizens. Currently managing afterschool academic and personal enrichment for 28 schools, CSY ensures quality programming featuring nine core components: Tutoring & Mentoring, 21st Century Skills, College & Career Exploration, Service Learning, Leadership Development, Arts Education, Health & Wellness, Global Learning, and Parent and Family Engagement opportunities. CSY supports Cincinnati Public Schools’ Community Learning Center initiative district-wide, particularly in supporting instructional practice and academic programs, promoting youth engagement, and developing a portfolio of innovative school-community models afterschool.

"Reporting to the District Vice President, the Director is responsible for planning, implementing, managing, and improving year-round, out-of-school time programs. This role requires a very strong project manager with an acute attention to detail and strong people management skills. In addition, the ideal candidate will be a strategic thinker who can transform the current program by adopting best practices from successful school-community partnerships and incubating innovative ideas.

"Master’s degree strongly preferred. Six to eight years work experience required, with specific experience in executing large-scale, cross-functional initiatives in an urban area strongly preferred. Previous exposure to or experience in full service community schools and/or academic-focused afterschool design and development a plus.

"We offer a comprehensive benefits package, including retirement plan participation after meeting eligibility requirements. Salary Range: $41,967-$52,500

"The YMCA of Greater Cincinnati sees diversity and inclusion efforts as an asset to our organization and as fundamental to living the mission; we therefore encourage all minorities to apply for this position.

"Please email a current resume and cover letter before February 28th to Rebecca Kelley at"

The Greater Cincinnati YMCA is currently advertising the job opening in Education Week. Apparently, it is conducting a national search.
