Vermont Youth Conservation Corps

Recruitment and Alumni Manager | Full Time

Category: Non-profit

Location: 1949 East Main Street, Richmond, VT, USA

VYCC is a 501c3 nonprofit focused on engaging young people in service, work, conservation, and agriculture. Since 1985, VYCC staff have provided valuable work and learning opportunities to youth and young adults from across the country and from nearly every town in Vermont. Our model is strong and simple: young people, working together, guided by highly trained leaders, completing priority projects in conservation and agriculture.

The Recruitment and Alumni Manager (RAM) helps young people discover VYCC. This person works across departments to coordinate outreach, and spends a majority of their time interacting with prospective applicants, incoming Members, and alumni. They work closely with a network of educators and youth development professionals to facilitate referrals. This is a person-to-person position, as the RAM meets with young people in schools, tech centers, colleges, and communities in Vermont and across the country online. The RAM supports VYCC alumni in job placement, educational opportunities, and future employment at VYCC, and collects stories and data about the careers alumni pursue after VYCC.

The RAM is a leader within VYCC, working collaboratively with program and administrative staff to connect with groups of prospective applicants who have not yet found their way to VYCC or seen themselves here. They are a master networker, seeking out, establishing, and cultivating relationships at schools, universities, and aligned organizations. They are the organizational force who manages systems and relationships to identify the short- and long-term impact of VYCC programs.

Successful candidates must have prior experience working with young people, preferably in the fields of recruitment, admissions, or enrollment. They must be comfortable working in a fast-paced environment, be an effective collaborator, and find inspiration in the VYCC mission. This position is integral to the success of VYCC and is a full-time, salaried (average of 40 hours a week) role which requires some in-state travel and frequent presence in our office in Richmond.
