The coordinator will work remotely and meet with staff, leaders, and volunteers as needed in downtown Brooklyn. The Program Coordinator will be responsible for developing and producing all aspects of our Cooperative Leadership Institute and public programming and should be comfortable working in a membership-based democratic organization.
The Cooperative Economics Alliance of New York City (CEANYC) aims to strengthen and expand community-led, democratically-controlled initiatives — from worker, financial and consumer co-ops to community land trusts and gardens, mutual housing, and low-income housing co-ops. Our goal is to build an economy based on values of social and racial justice, ecological sustainability, cooperation, mutualism, and democracy.
We seek a self-directed, reliable, creative, and flexible individual who has a strong aptitude for project management, collective leadership, and working with diverse stakeholders in neighborhood-based settings. Our ideal Coordinator has excellent written and verbal English and Spanish skills and at least two years of experience creating and producing leadership development programs for social justice organizations or within the solidarity and cooperative economy. Experience and aptitude for working remotely and willingness to travel frequently in the five boroughs is required. Working knowledge of CiviCRM, Twitter, Facebook, WordPress, Instagram, Google Drive, Google Hangout, Zoom, and Skype strongly preferred. Interest and experience in cooperatives, solidarity economics, or democratic community organizations is ideal.
Coordinator duties will include:

- Produce programs and events for membership and the general public
- Develop and implement trainings for per diem instructors and event staff
- Develop a roster of expert practitioners to staff programs
- Create and manage programming calendar

People from these and other traditionally marginalized backgrounds and communities are strongly encouraged to apply.
This is an independent contractor position that will grow into a full-time staff position with benefits as funding is secured.
