Hack the Hood Case Manager Job Description
Location: Headquartered in OAKLAND, CA
Job Category: Full Time, non-exempt Employee
Reports To: Oakland Program Director
Compensation commensurate with experience
Hack the Hood was launched just five years ago to build a tech sector that works for everyone. We support under-resourced youth of color in communities around the state and the country to build 21st century careers in technology and social media. We turn the digital economy from threat to opportunity by joining our youth with the 58% of small businesses that don’t have a website. As one of the first organizations in this field, our programs aim to ensure that tech is making the world better for all the communities it intersects.
We are seeking a Case Manager who will evolve and strengthen our baseline wrap-around services. As Case Manager, you will interface with our programs team to better engage participants of our six to nine week boot camps and year-round membership programs. You will be central in providing case management support to under-resourced youth of color enrolled in our programs. As Case Manager, you will assess, problem solve, coach, provide support and referrals for youth experiencing barriers to education, which have included: housing, transportation, wardrobe, income supports/benefits, child-care, health/mental health services, etc. As care-provider for our participants, you will be a critical part of developing strong referral relationships with service providers across Oakland and Alameda County.
Work at Hack the Hood is strongly collaborative. We achieve amazing things not just through hard work, but through the value we place on our relationships with the young people we serve, with each other, our community, and the businesses, small and large, that we partner with. Come join us!
This is a wonderful opportunity to be part of a committed team doing important, innovative regional work. The position offers growth opportunities, great community engagement and tangible measurements of outcomes and impact. Candidate consideration will begin the 11th of December 2018.
