The mission of Julie’s Dream is to give children in under-resourced communities in Atlanta the hope and love of Jesus Christ through awe-inspiring wilderness experiences and outdoor adventures.
Julie’s Dream programs are conducted primarily in the Atlanta area but also in natural settings all over the United States. Hiking, camping, swimming, rafting, mountain biking, canoeing, and rock climbing, are just a few of the adventures that we utilize to reach the children we serve. The Program Coordinator will plan, implement, and evaluate school year and summer outdoor activities, ensuring that programming is appropriate for and enriching to the children we serve. The Program Coordinator is a core member of the Julie’s Dream staff and reports directly to the Executive Director. The Program Coordinator position is a salaried position with work hours consistent with the times Julie’s Dream programming occurs (after school, on weekends, and during school and summer breaks). Frequent overnight hours are required. When not onsite at a partner location or in the field, work from home may be allowed at certain approved times. The Program Coordinator essentially runs the day-to-day programming that Julie’s Dream provides. He or she will camp, hike, eat, adventure, and participate in various activities with the children we serve. The Program Coordinator is integrally connected to the success of both our programming and our relationships with our community partners. He or she will regularly meet with community partner staff, counselors, parents, and clergy and, with direction from the Executive Director, will be empowered to create initiatives, structure daily activities, plan and execute adventure trips, run day camps, and provide educational sessions.
