REAP Values and Work Environment
The REAP staff works together in a distributed fashion, due to our program work taking place in school settings. REAP staff are flexible, enthusiastic, and committed to the mission, but may not see each other in the organization’s office as often as the staff of most groups. The person in this position will work in the office more than most other staff members, but needs to be relatively self-sufficient and a self-starter.
REAP values equity and inclusion and is an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate diversity and encourage qualified candidates of all backgrounds, abilities, and orientations to apply.
Start date: May 15, 2017 (or when the position is filled)
