If so, consider yourself a candidate for BAVC’s TechSF Program Manager position! This is a full-time, 2-year, grant-funded position with a possibility of extending for two additional years.

BAVC (Bay Area Video Coalition), a 45-year old nonprofit media arts center, has over 20 years of workforce development experience and has partnered with the City and County of San Francisco for over a decade to provide advanced technical training and job placement assistance to underserved populations.

You will oversee all aspects of the program as it pertains to BAVC, including outreach, vetting candidates, helping onboard them into one of three tracks: Digital Marketing, Video Production and Video Post-production, attending all required Office of Economic & Workforce Development (OEWD) TechSF meetings, inputting data into OEWD’s online database system and in BAVC’s Salesforce system, running reports and staying current on all participants’ progress. 

The TechSF Program Manager will coordinate all program activities, such as group job search workshops, guest speakers, career fairs, and oversee participants’ completion of advanced technical training through job placement and retention.
