Description

Like our other Youth Services Coordinators, you have personal experience with the challenges of foster care and the obstacles facing foster youth transitioning out of the system. Each year, hundreds of transitioning youth without caring connections face similar obstacles, struggling to find essential support they need to survive and thrive when they're finally out on their own. 

If you have the passion and commitment to make a real difference in the lives of young people in transition, taking a critical role in creating innovative opportunities for greater self-sufficiency and well-being, then we want to talk to you about being a leader on our team. If you’re looking for a dynamic, impact-driven organization that values exceptional interpersonal skills and a passion for transformative change —and offers you the opportunity to use your strengths each and every day with a team of like-minded individuals—let’s talk. 

As the Youth Services Coordinator for Just in Time for Foster Youth (JIT), you’ll help expand our reach and impact by sharing our story in powerful ways that “woo” both transition age youth and caring adults to fill the resource and relationship gap for over 1,000 young people each year.
