      Positions are available at Grand Street Community Arts:


      Coordinator, South End Vacant Property Transformation Project

      Grand Street Community Arts seeks an individual to coordinate a spring and
      summer outreach project of Youth Organics to assist neighbors of vacant
      lots and buildings in the South End of Albany to find creative uses for
      the nuisance properties and then work with them to realize the project,
      linking each with volunteers and other resources. Lots may lend themselves
      to flower beds, vegetable gardens, children’s play areas, community
      gathering places and even art projects.

      The coordinator must have experience in working with a diverse range of
      local residents, artists and volunteers. The coordinator will also
      supervise one or two part-time outreach workers who are graduates of
      previous year Youth Organics program, as well as youth assigned to YO by
      the Albany Summer Youth Employment Program.

      Depending on funding, this can be a part-time (300 hours) National Service
      AmeriCorps position through GSCA’s partner organization, the Albany United
      Methodist Society, or a grant-funded spring and summer program.

      This program will start in May, as soon as funds are available, and run
      through September. Hours will be flexible and will be negotiated based on
      funding availability.


      Director of Development and Volunteer Service

      Grand Street Community Arts seeks an individual who is eager to work in a
      diverse inner city neighborhood with local residents, artists and a
      cross-section of volunteers. The individual must be able to work
      independently under the supervision of the executive director and managing
      director, and also to coordinate activities with program staff to insure
      that volunteers are used effectively, and to draw on the special skills of
      a diverse range of volunteers.

      The position calls for a person with a college degree and/or significant
      life experience including some hands-on volunteer experience. Strong
      communications skills and skills in basic computer programs and web use
      are essential. Experience in the use of web-based databases, management of
      a web site and facility in using new media communications are preferred.
      (Training and mentorship of these advanced computer skills can be
      provided.)

      This is a full time National Service VISTA position through the Siena
      College Presidential Mission and Service VISTA Fellows Program, with a
      minimum commitment of one year. The position will start in June.
