Boys & Girls Clubs looking to hire 150 employees in Milwaukee

Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee is in the process of filling about 150 full- and part-time positions at its 38 clubhouses in metro Milwaukee.

 

The nonprofit organization, which offers academic, extracurricular and recreational programming to kids ages 5 to 18, looks to hire employees to work with kids after school at its clubhouse locations.

According to Vincent Lyles, president and chief executive officer of Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee, the organization seeks individuals who have a lot of energy and will be “positive role models” for the organization’s students, many of whom come from low-income families.

“People with some experience around child and youth development are kind of our target audience,” Lyles said. “We’re also looking for folks who have a level of creativity (and) entrepreneurship.”

The 150 positions have become available as many of the nonprofit’s summer staff members, which included college students, teenagers and school employees, have transitioned back into their school-year routine. Additional positions have opened up at three schools within Milwaukee Public Schools where the Boys & Girls Clubs are introducing programming. Those schools are Grantosa Drive School, Keefe Avenue School, and Sherman Multicultural Arts School.

Positions are being funded by both governmental grants and private sector support.

Boys & Girls Clubs offers employment opportunities for both individuals launching their careers and those looking to focus their work in the nonprofit sector long term, Lyles said.

“We’re a great starting point, and we’re also a place for people to build their career around,” he said.
