Project Coordinator for the East Harlem Block Nursery

OACny is assisting East Harlem Block Nursery (EHBN) in finding a new site to expand their childcare services. East Harlem Block Nursery is a grassroots education based not-for-profit providing early childhood education to pre-school age children within the East and Central Harlem communities.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Liaising with OACNY
  • Meeting with EHBN to understand their needs
  • Create a deliverable that summarizes all relevant information (which may include room adjacencies/organizations, area tallies, pertinent code research etc)
  • Manage a small team of volunteers to assist with the deliverable

Desired Experience/Skills:

  • Knowledge of building code
  • Knowledge of educational facility design
  • Architecture license is a plus
  • Strong communication organizational skills

Please send your resume to Kathy Mu, at by August 15 to apply.

Please note that this is a volunteer position.
