Welcome Baby Program Manager
United Way of Northern Utah Mission: Uniting people and organizations to build healthy and well-educated communities where individuals, families and neighborhoods thrive.
Title: Welcome Baby Program Manager
Reports to: Welcome Baby Program Director
Summary: Welcome Baby is a free community service designed to promote healthy, secure, and enjoyable beginnings for young children (0-3 years). Volunteers visit moms monthly in their homes bringing age-specific developmental information for their baby, parental engagement activities to enhance development, and parenting tips. Home visitors discuss good health habits, school-readiness activities, and family economic self-sufficiency. Families are also connected with resources in the community as needs arise.
The Welcome Baby team seeks a dynamic and energetic Program Manager who is passionate about early childhood development and supporting families in the community. The Program Manager will work closely with the Program Director to recruit and oversee a group of AmeriCorps members (who in turn recruit home visitation volunteers). The program manager will maintain strong partnerships with community stakeholders to propel forward the work of the Welcome Baby Program. Additionally, the program manager will ensure program measures and goals are being met.
