Located in West Oakland, Civicorps is a local conservation corps, and a dynamic non-profit that includes two social enterprises. Civicorps' mission is to re-engage young adults, age 18-26, to earn a high-school diploma, gain job skills, pursue college, and embark on family-sustaining careers in land management, conservation and recycling.
Youth at Civicorps have the ambition, talent, and perseverance to succeed; what they deserve is personalized mentoring and support as they develop a plan to achieve their goals. Our participants have experienced failures of multiple systems - the traditional school system, the justice system, and the child welfare system. Against a larger Bay Area backdrop of accelerating income inequality, neighborhood displacement, and food and housing insecurity, Civicorps' programs and support services are more vital than ever.
Through our unique mix of personalized academics, paid job training, trauma-informed support services, and pathways to college and careers, Civicorps helps resilient youth overcome barriers, cultivate their talents, and unleash their potential.
Reporting to the Director of Development & Communications and joining a passionate four-member team that is committed to advancing economic and racial equity, the Grant Contracts Manager (GCM) is responsible for preparing the proposals for and managing the data tracking, reporting, and financial compliance of $700K in government grants. The GCM is the main point of contact between the Finance, Program, and Development teams and must possess the ability to see both the big picture and the small details to ensure the successful proposal and reporting of all government grants. The GCM works with Senior Management to create data dashboards, improve data systems, and create a more robust data culture across Civicorps.
