Job Summary


We are growing! In 2013, we launched our program at one school in Nashville,TN. This academic year, we are in 51 schools across 26 cities in the U.S. and Canada, with plans to continue to grow our footprint! We are looking for vibrant, effective team members. If this describes you, read on.

Rock The Street, Wall Street, (RTSWS), is a 501(c)(3) non-profit. RTSWS is a financial and investment literacy education program designed to spark the interest of a diverse population of high school girls into careers of finance. Our programs offer hands-on learning experiences for girls that teach them how to manage their money and develop readiness skills for college or careers in business.  In the U.S., we lose girls in math as early as age 9, and women represent only 6% of the leaders in the financial services industry. We’re changing that. We currently offer our extracurricular program in 51 high schools located in 26 cities, and growing, across the U.S., Canada and the United Kingdom. 

The role of the Program Coordinator is to work directly with corporate volunteers, financial professionals, academic professionals and students in high schools to ensure successful delivery of our program. This position requires knowledge of logistics. 

Location: Nashville, TN with ability for some remote work

Travel: 20 – 30%, seasonally

This role requires facilitating the launching of our programs in multiple cities across the U.S. Schedule volunteers, and orchestrating program sessions to meet student/school demand with little to no delay.

The Coordinator will cultivate relationships in a wide range of settings — leading financial firms, corporations, public and private high schools. It is a business-critical role that rewards you with the chance to make a lasting impact on the girls we serve, the professionals who volunteer for us and the communities in which they live.

Collaboration as a team player is a must to achieve the dream of our organization. We know we are making an impact in our communities and that’s what drives us to do whatever it takes and have a sense of urgency when doing it
