PowerUp (, 2 Yr Employee Growth Rate)
Who We Are
PowerUP is a not-for-profit that is building a scalable mentorship model for underprivileged youth. We work in partnership with senseis and community partners to bring martial arts to children who otherwise might not be able to benefit from these classes.
The driving theme behind PowerUP is that martial arts senseis can mentor 50 or more children at a time, and expose them to our three core values of Self-Control, Resilience and Respect.
You’ll Love this Job if..
- You are frustrated by the pace of a traditional nonprofit;
- You look forward to taking on responsibilities;
- You want a growth opportunity.
We are a small shop of an Executive Director and passionate Board of Directors aimed at bringing mentorship to underserved youth. This Program Coordinator (PC) will be a partner in the future growth of the organization.
PC will play the pivotal role of helping the organization keep track of our students, senseis, and data. This position will be focused on managing the attendance records of classes, working with partners to retain students, and contacting families to learn more about them and the benefits they are seeing from PowerUP classes.
We are looking for someone who wants to make an impact in the lives of our students and is willing to take on the challenge of helping them build skills for success in the rest of their lives.
Why We Will Love You
PowerUP’s next PC will need to be someone who cares about making an impact on the lives of our students and our community.

The next PC will need to be someone who is not just able to call our families, but is excited to build relationships with them.

PowerUP is based in Atlanta, GA, but is a virtual workplace, and plans on keeping our operations virtual for the foreseeable future. The role is a full time work-from-home (work from anywhere) role, but preference will be given to candidates located in the Atlanta Metro Area.

- Spanish language skills are highly desired
The salary for this position will be $36,000 annually.
