Pacific Yearly Meeting seeks a full-time Youth Programs Coordinator, beginning in June 2019 (or earlier). The role of the Youth Programs Coordinator is to enhance the spiritual development and nurture of youth  (‘youth’ being defined as children, teens, and young adults) and intergenerational community within the Yearly Meeting.

The Youth Programs Coordinator supports and coordinates activities that build the capacity of youth and adults to run their own programs and serves as a resource for Meetings (local/Monthly, worship groups, Quarterly, Yearly) and related Quaker organizations within PYM. In working with individuals, groups, and committees of all ages, the Coordinator and the Youth Programs Coordinating Committee (YPCC) will often act as a catalyst for new programs and activities. The work of the Youth Programs Coordinator (YPC) includes supporting young Friends and involving them in the life of the Meeting: helping them to stay connected between sessions and helping Meetings that have children, teenagers, and young adults meet these Friends’ needs.

Applicants for this position should be members of the Religious Society of Friends with a demonstrated spiritual life, including a deep grounding and experience of Quaker beliefs, practices and discernment processes. Applicants should have successful experience teaching/learning with teenagers and with curriculum development. They should possess excellent communication and interpersonal relationship skills and be able to utilize contemporary forms of technology. They should be organized and self-motivated.

This is a full-time, year-round position with an initial salary ranging from $47,000 to $54,000 per year, based on applicant experience. The position will also include salary supplements to offset the cost of health and dental insurance premiums; contributions to a retirement plan; Social Security, Medicare, and Unemployment Insurance; Worker Compensation; and paid time off.
