Community Colleagues,

Thank you for your willingness to assist the Boys & Girls Clubs of Kentuckiana in our effort to provide employment opportunities within the community. 

We are now accepting open applications for all positions and would appreciate your support in posting this flyer in a location accessible to the public and sharing with your networks of family, friends, and community.

We are seeking Youth Development workers who can serve as supportive and relatable role models for our teen population. We have a number of career-readiness programs to support their growth and development while building their potential for success to include healthy lifestyles, character and leadership, and academic success. The individual selected for this position would be responsible for deploying these programs and providing support and assistance to young teens. This is a time of many changes for a young person, and we are seeking individuals who can engage and provide positive supports during this time in a young teen’s life. We have two teen coordinator positions—one in New Albany, Indiana, and one at our Parkland Club in Louisville. We know this is important work, and our organization has an incentive plan for our teen coordinators that provides the potential to increase the hourly rate of this positions starting at $10.50/hour to $12.00/hour within the first two years of employment.

Some of our hard-to-fill positions include our art instructor and athletic coordinator positions. We have an art instructor opening at our Newburg club, and we have an athletic coordinator opening at our Jeffersonville, Indiana, club. We are also hiring for entry-level program aides as well. The program aide position provides a great entry point for an individual with limited or no experience working in youth development but has a passion for helping young people.

Again, thank you for your support.  If you have any questions about our job opportunities, please feel free to contact me at (502) 585-5437, Ext. 208.

We always appreciate your continued support of Boys & Girls Clubs.
