Program Manager - YMSM / LGBT Services
The SoCal Club Program Manager is a self-motivated leader and an enterprising doer. You will lead the team at SoCal Club in developing fun, dynamic, culturally- and age-appropriate programming for LGBT youth in South LA. You are enthusiastic, resourceful, proactive, detail-oriented, and thrive in a fast-paced environment focused on expanding services for our clients. You should have extensive experience with grant-funded, non-profit programs providing services to LGBT youth and experience leading highly diverse teams in a start-up environment. You should also be on the cutting edge of evidence-based practices for HIV treatment and biomedical prevention, including individual- and community-level evidence informed interventions.
About MFH and SoCal Club
At Men’s Health Foundation, we are dedicated to our mission of connecting men at risk to comprehensive healthcare and wellness through education, collaboration, and advocacy, inspiring and empowering all men to live longer healthier and happier lives. Having grown out of Dr Tony Mills’ 20-years of experience running a successful medical practice emphasizing whole-person centered health care with expertise in HIV treatment, MHF works to reimagine health care, creating greater health equity for those men most at risk and breaking down barriers to care.
SoCal Club, our new location in South Los Angeles at 8601 S. Broadway, focuses on reducing stigma and expanding access to care in this historically underserved area of our city. SoCal Club achieves this by offering an expansive mix of engagement programming, including workout and vogue classes, yoga, art classes, and social activities such as cookouts, movie nights, and vogue balls. These events build community and help to create a safe space in which we offer age- and culturally-competent services such a HIV/STI testing and treatment, mental health services, and evidence-based interventions, such as Mpowerment.
MHF offers competitive pay and the opportunity to work in a dynamic, evolving, team-based environment providing services to for young gay/bisexual Black and Latino men in South LA. MHF provides support far beyond the grant funding, and you will have the opportunity to build and shape the program, developing it to meet the needs of the community. Over the next 12 months you will expand the team and implement full-time clinical operations at the site. This location will serve as a model for MHF’s expansion in South Los Angeles, and you’ll play a vital role in developing future expansion plans.
