Position Description


Department: Priscilla King Gray (PKG) Center

Collaborate with PKG Center staff and colleagues from across MIT to develop and administer the center’s social impact employment programs, connecting enrolled MIT students with jobs and learning opportunities in organizations focused on positive community outcomes.


Will collaborate with Student Financial Services on the off-campus Federal Work-Study Program, promoting the opportunity to eligible students and partner agencies, meeting spending targets, maintaining compliance with federal rules and regulations, and promoting student learning and community benefit; develop complementary opportunities for students not using Federal Work-Study funds and develop community partner strategies and tools for the center; and supervise one graduate assistant and one to three undergraduate program assistants. Partnerships with external organizations (particularly nonprofits and government agencies) are a cornerstone of the center’s programs, values, and mission.
