Job Description

Last Update: 1/11/24
Who We Are:

The New Jersey Coalition to End Homelessness (NJCEH) is a statewide, social impact organization [a 501(c)(3) non-profit] with one goal: to eradicate homelessness in New Jersey. Toward that end, the Coalition will advocate, educate, organize and, if necessary, litigate for emergency and permanent solutions to homelessness.

At the Coalition, our plan for improving shelters across the state is two-fold:

1. Help the policymakers get it right by promoting common sense, proven ideas backed by the wisdom of people on the frontlines of helping the homeless, and people with lived experience of homelessness.

2. Help the helpers do it right through unprecedented collaboration and support among New Jersey shelters.

To help the helpers get it right, we are starting a training academy for frontline staff throughout the state to become better equipped for the different challenges of their jobs. You will play a pivotal role in driving our mission forward by developing and implementing high impact training programs, fostering strategic partnerships, and ensuring the continuous improvement of our educational offerings.

What You Will Do:

As Program Director, you will be responsible for setting up, launching, and managing the training for shelter staff across the state of NJ.

Curriculum Development:

1. Survey shelters to identify what trainings are needed and what staff members will be participating.

2. Curate existing national training materials and negotiate cost-effective ways for NJ shelters to access these trainings.

3. Design, develop, and update training curricula to meet the evolving needs of the homelessness sector.

4. Incorporate best practices, evidence-based strategies, and emerging trends into training materials.

Program Management:

1. Oversee the planning, coordination, and execution of training events, workshops, and seminars (being mindful of the 24-hour nature of shelters).

2. Monitor program effectiveness and gather feedback to make improvements.

3. Utilize data and metrics to assess the impact of training programs and make data-driven decisions for program enhancement.

Shelter Engagement:

1. Cultivate and maintain relationships with key stakeholders, including government agencies, non-profit organizations, and academic institutions.

2. Collaborate with experts in the field to enhance the quality and relevance of content especially for trainings that are best held in-person.

3. Coordinate with shelters to ensure that trainings are relevant and being utilized by staff.

4. Be a resource for shelters with unique training needs and help develop beneficial resources.
