Organizational Overview: The Door is an unparalleled model for youth development, offering a comprehensive range of integrated services within a single site for nearly 11,000 New York City youth each year. Our mission is to empower young adults to reach their full potential by providing comprehensive youth development services in a diverse and caring environment. At The Door, youth can access health care and education, mental health counseling and crisis assistance, legal assistance, college preparation services, career development, housing supports, arts, sports and recreational activities, and nutritious meals – all for free and under one roof. By providing participants with our suite of integrated services, we seek to provide any motivated young person with the tools, resources, and opportunities needed to successfully transition to adulthood.
Youth Opportunity Hub: The Door operates as one of five “Youth Opportunity Hubs,” a first-of-its-kind effort to knit together community-based providers funded through the Manhattan District Attorney Office’s Criminal Justice Investment Initiative. Through a three-pronged strategy: The Door connects youth to a full range of wraparound services at the hub, and provides more intensive services for high risk youth. The Door collaborates with outstanding partners on this project.
Short-term, we see increased youth referrals to The Door, deeper partnerships, more involvement with services, and more intensive engagement in working towards education, career, mental health, and positive socialization goals. Mid-term, we note outcomes such as: reduced initial justice system involvement, idle time, and risky behaviors; increased pro social engagements; improved mental and physical health; involvement in work and education opportunities; and connection to peers, adults, and mentors. Over the course of the grant period, we expect to achieve long-term outcomes such as retention in education and career opportunities, improved wellbeing, avoidance of system involvement, and continued pro social activities.
The Supervisor will be an important project and relationship manager, taking a leadership role in the ongoing operations of The Door’s Youth Opportunity Hub and serving as the point person with our 11 partners. The Supervisor will also collaborate with staff at The Door’s main site in SoHo, the Bronx Youth Center, our two housing sites, and Broome Street Academy to develop stronger and more strategic relationships between programs.
