Position Description

Enrollment & Match Support Specialist

January 2021

Overview of our Organization

Our mission at BBBS NW Montana is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever. We are a small nonprofit organization that works with community partners and schools to identify children who would benefit from an additional layer of adult support. We work closely with a team of volunteer mentors to grow and maintain healthy mentoring relationships with the goal of defending the potential we know exists in every child. We are led by a board of directors and supported by an army of individuals, businesses, organizations, schools, and foundations in both Missoula and Flathead.

Position Description

The primary function of this position is to enroll and support the youth mentees and adult mentors. This includes facilitating a rigorous and well-documented inquiry and enrollment process, thoughtfully matching a mentee with a mentor, and actively engaging the mentee, mentor, and parents/guardians to ensure best risk-management practices, healthy growth of the relationship, and healthy growth of the child. The individual in this role would work closely within a small team while supporting the mission across two counties. The successful candidate will possess the capacity to work independently and make vital decisions that reflect best practices while working, in-person and virtually, collaboratively with

teammates, in-person and virtually, families, children, mentors, partner organizations, schools, and other

community entities.

This role requires close work within the Missoula community. The ideal candidate lives in or near the city of Missoula. While this is likely to change within 2021, this position would work primarily from a home office with a requirement to travel in and around Missoula and occasionally to Flathead County.

 

Salary , Status, & FTE

This position is full-time (40 hours/week) and non-exempt, with a beginning rate of pay of $15/hour.

Benefits After a 90 day probationary period, this position is eligible for healthcare benefits, paid holidays,

and accrued time off.
