Program Manager, Learning to Work for Transfer Schools in Brooklyn/Manhattan

For more than a decade, CAMBA has partnered with NYC Department of Education Transfer High Schools on the Learning to Work (LTW initiative). LTWs are designed to re-engage over-age, under-credited students at public transfer high schools and Young Adult Borough Centers (YABCs) in New York City. These students typically face numerous barriers to success, including homelessness, court-involvement, teen parenthood, trauma and poverty. At the schools where we work, 80 - 90% of the student population is eligible for free or reduced lunch. Youth in these programs are particularly underserved and our resources are stretched to provide as much support as possible. LTW provides academic counseling, social -emotional support, family engagement, attendance outreach and career-readiness activities, including paid internships, to prepare youth for success. LTW is not a stand-alone program.  It is an integral part of culture within each school.  


CAMBA is seeking a Program Manager to manage a portfolio of LTW’s in Brooklyn + Manhattan. The Program Manager directly supervises the CAMBA LTW Onsite Director and provides strategic guidance to each CAMBA site-based team. In addition, the Program Manager engages with Transfer High School principals and other administrators to ensure that CAMBA is effectively supporting overall school goals.
