      Description:

      Peer Health Exchange (PHE), is a national non-profit organization that gives teenagers the knowledge and skills they need to make healthy decisions. We do this by training college students to teach a comprehensive health curriculum in public high schools that lack health education. Since our founding in 2003, we have trained more than 6,500 college student volunteers to deliver effective health education to over 72,000 public high school students in Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, the San Francisco Bay Area, and Washington, DC. In 2011, we launched a four year Strategic Plan with three major priorities: deepening impact, investing in more robust program evaluation, and developing and testing additional methods for impact, all while serving 120,000 teens over the next four years. To achieve these priorities, we will grow from a staff of 40 and a budget of $9.5M today to a staff of over 100 and a budget of $14M in 2015.

      The primary responsibilities of the Boston Program Manager will be to assist with the development, management, growth, and evaluation of the Boston program and support the Boston Program Director and Boston Executive Director.
