Children need to spend their most critical years with dedicated, educated, trained, and well-compensated individuals in order to thrive. The New York Early Childhood Professional Development Institute leads the work to establish and implement an early childhood workforce system to ensure funding, standards and competencies, career development resources, qualifications and credentials, professional development (training and strengths-based coaching), and program quality assurance and improvement for individuals who work with young children throughout New York. Housed at the City University of New York, the Institute is a fast-paced, dynamic public/private partnership that is committed to the early childhood workforce across New York State.
The Project Coordinator will oversee and administer critical components of the implementation of the PDGB-5 (Preschool Development Grant Birth to Five) Grant project as it relates to the Early Childhood Advisory Council (ECAC), workforce, quality, and related deliverables.
The Coordinator will be based in Rensselaer (near Albany) at the Council on Children and Families. The position will involve frequent written and oral communications with a wide variety of people, including the co-chairs of the ECAC, executive and management staff, co-workers, program and administrative staff, representatives of businesses and organizations, elected and appointed officials and their staff, and the general public. Periodic travel to NYC and throughout the rest of the state is required.
This is a federally-funded grant position through December 2019 with a strong possibility for continued funding after Dec. 2019. Salary will be pro-rated based on the length of this project.
