Teen Programs Coordinator


Teen Programs Coordinator (TPC)


This position reports to the Teen Programs Manager.


At Step Up, we believe girls deserve to define and pursue success on their terms. By bringing girls together in inspired spaces – on and offline – we spark exploration and discussion of what’s possible. With structured support and access to a strong community, we guide girls towards their unique goals: first, by identifying those goals and then, building the roadmap to get there.

Step Up participants are high school girls and those who identify with girlhood and young women and those who identify with womanhood (ages 14-23), who are facing systemic barriers.

Step Up is in the process of implementing its five-year strategic plan, focused on strengthening existing programs and expanding its footprint nationally through a blended mentorship model of virtual, in person and independent learning methodologies.


The Teen Programs Coordinator is a key member of the Teen Programs team working within the Programs Department to design, create and execute programs for teen girls, and those who identify with girlhood, ages 14-18, both virtually and in-person. This role is ideal for someone who has an interest in working in youth development and/or program planning and facilitation. The role supports much of the coordination of our programs and is a valued partner in all aspects of program design and execution. If you want to support teens as they transcend racial and gender inequities, close the opportunity gap, and advance their communities and families, you are our ideal candidate.
