Overview: Sadie Nash Leadership Project

Sadie Nash Leadership Project provides award-winning leadership programming to more than 500 young women and gender-expansive youth of color in New York City and Newark each year. Operating at the intersection of love and rigor, we use the tools of popular education to build critical consciousness, community, and college and career readiness. Our programs include a nationally recognized six-week summer institute, in-school and after-school classes, paid internships at local organizations, college access and persistence support, and an advanced-level fellowship to design and implement an original social justice project. We support all participants to lead lives in committed pursuit of joy and liberation for self and community.

This person will have oversight of the Sisterhood Academy after-school class offered at our Newark location and recruit and train faculty and deans (teaching assistants) to partner with schools and organizations in Newark and New York to offer our Sisterhood Academy class there. Partnerships is our largest program at Sadie Nash and offers an opportunity to share our core Sisterhood Academy curriculum with young people with limited access to after-school programs including English language learners, pregnant and parenting teens and justice-involved youth.
