DAE, a Connecticut nonprofit democratizing access to 21st century digital career and life skills for underrepresented youth, will host a series of job fairs at their New Haven headquarters in May and June to fill seven open positions. The new roles are a result of the organization’s continued growth and span all experience levels and departments including Education, Operations, and Development.
DAE’s programming is designed to help high school students and young adults from historically underserved communities rapidly increase their mastery of technology skills and develop the personal and interpersonal skills required to form healthy and humane communities and workplaces. With a 91% retention rate, the nonprofit is giving students the tools and support needed to shape their own future and the world around them.
The job fairs, held Tuesday, May 23 (10am – 2pm), Thursday, May 25 (4pm – 6pm), and Thursday, June 8 (10am – 2pm), will provide an opportunity for applicants to meet with DAE staff, learn more about the organization, and participate in a group interview. Fluency in Spanish is a plus for all positions. Interested candidates may submit their resume and request an interview slot by visiting: https://mydae.co/apply.
Education Team: DAE’s education team works with high school students in the nonprofit’s year-long coding program in New Haven and Stamford to create a committed and inclusive learning environment around website development, video game design, and the Internet of Things. A variety of positions are available on this team for individuals with varying coding experience; at minimum, applicants must show a level of personal or professional experience with learning new technologies or coding. Applicants should have experience working with this age group in a setting where safety and relationship with students were a priority.
Operations Team: DAE’s operations team is hiring an Operations Manager accountable for the oversight and execution of all facilities and operations logistics. The ideal candidate will have 5–6 years of experience in an operations and/or manager role that required a high level of project management and coordination activity. There are also a variety of other part-time Operations positions available.
Development Team: DAE’s development team is hiring a Recruiting & Community Engagement Manager accountable recruiting, partner development, and project management for the development team. This is not a traditional recruiting position, but rather one more suited to someone with a background in community outreach. DAE is interested in candidates with 3–5 years of experience in a similar role and the ability to generate enthusiasm for community-oriented programs – and then translate that enthusiasm into action.
“As our impact and reach continue to grow, it’s essential that we expand our team to keep the positive momentum going,” said a.m. bhatt, DAE’s founder and CEO. “We are seeking passionate individuals dedicated to our shared vision of helping young people develop the skills, mindsets, and interpersonal capabilities needed to be successful upon graduation and form healthy, humane communities.”
