  • Seacoast Outright, Program Coordinator

    Posted: 09/12/2022

    Overview

    For 29 years, Seacoast Outright has been serving, supporting, and advocating for LGBTQ youth in the Greater Seacoast Area of New Hampshire. We provide direct services in the form of weekly youth groups, conduct outreach and education, partner with other youth organizations, and sit on several steering committees to ensure the needs of our community are represented in NH and southern Maine.

    We are seeking an energetic, mission-driven, creative Program Coordinator to deliver our current core programming and identify areas of need where future programming might be developed. As a new position at Seacoast Outright, this is an exciting opportunity to have a direct impact on the health and wellbeing of the LGBTQ youth community of the Seacoast, to shape the organization, and expand its scope and reach.

    This position is 40 hours per week, reporting to the Executive Director. While the majority of time will focus on programming, other tasks relevant to the overall welfare of the organization will also be required. With a small, yet dedicated group of Board members and volunteers, some events require all hands on deck. It is assumed that all Outright staff will participate in PRIDE and other annual events.
