Access Code Program Manager (Nights & Weekends)

Coalition for Queens is transforming the tech industry by empowering underserved, low-income, and underrepresented communities with skills, networks, and opportunity through its innovative Access Code program. This intensive 10-month part-time program in mobile app development prepares participants with no prior coding experience for entry-level developer jobs at the hundreds of innovative startups and tech companies that are looking to hire the next generation of talent.

C4Q seeks an Access Code Program Manager to drive and develop programming for the talented students in our intensive and inclusive tech education program. The Program Manager (PM), reporting directly to our Head of Operations and Planning, is the most hands-on member of the team. Our PMs are comfortable as generalists, doing anything from working closely with our industry expert instructors on curriculum implementation to developing analyses that will inform how to improve the Access Code experience. They are also passionate advocates for student success, supporting them in and out of the classroom.

The ideal candidate is a meticulous manager and outcomes-oriented mobilizer. He or she finds extreme joy in collaborating with talented individuals to improve their lives through tech.  The Program Manager role provides great exposure to all the functional areas of an innovative and values-driven non-profit, and immense opportunity to develop operational skills.

The Nights & Weekends Program Manager needs to be on-site at our Queens campus to support our nights and weekends cohort from 6 - 10pm on weekdays, 10am to 6pm on weekends, with up to 4-8 additional hours of time required for internal meetings as needed.
