Program Manager for Teen Engagement

The Sisterhood of Salaam Shalom is a North American-based non-profit organization committed to forging bridges between Muslim and Jewish women and teen girls and building community leaders prepared to stand up for one another and against prejudice and hate. The Sisterhood operates through three main branches- chapters, which are local groups of Muslim and Jewish women or teens who commit to meeting regularly for interfaith discussion, learning, and service work, an annual conference and regional gatherings, which bring together Muslim and Jewish women and allies from across the United States, Canada, and abroad, and an annual Building Bridges trip, which travels to a place of mutual Muslim-Jewish significance. 

The Sisterhood seeks a part-time program manager to be responsible for one of our newest initiatives, programming for teen girls. The position will be remote and require approximately ten hours/week. The purpose of this role is to provide support to existing and newly forming chapters, to identify areas of potential growth and to cultivate new chapters in those areas, to provide leadership resources and skill development opportunities to the teens, and to serve as a liaison between the teens, Central Office, and overall Sisterhood.

 The program director will communicate with our teens primarily through webinar, text, WhatsApp, and email methods and will report to the Assistant Director. This programming focus is still evolving, so the position will require innovation, creativity, and flexibility. Qualifications include previous work in community building and with youth/teens, experience in interfaith environments, excellent communication and organizational skills, time management, ability to work independently, and familiarity with Zoom webinar services, Google suite, and social media platforms. Hours will be flexible but will likely include after-school, evenings, and occasionally, Sundays. Compensation will be part-time, hourly, and commensurate with experience.

 Major job responsibilities include: 

  • Support the planning and execution of the Sisterhood of Salaam Shalom teen chapter expansion commitment
  • Work closely with the Teen Chapter Expansion Board Committee head to support organized chapter growth through the establishment of new chapters located throughout North America
  • Work closely with the co-leaders of existing and newly forming teen chapters to provide training, guidance, and support on chapter formation and management, the implementation of special projects, and the development of leadership transition plans 
  • Provide necessary resources, including, but not limited to webinars, toolkits, and guidebooks
  • Maintain responsibility for potential member communication and correspondence
  • Collect photo releases for all teen members
  • Conduct regular meetings to help guide expansion of new chapters and to facilitate management of existing chapters (monthly teen webinars or Help Desk)
  • Update and monitor social media teen content (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc.)
  • Help generate press opportunities for teen chapters

Interested candidates should send a letter of interest and resume for consideration to Samantha@sosspeace.org.
