You will receive a complete description and instructions on how to apply when you click on the title of each position.

Be inspired. Be inspirational. Be a part of the solution!

Something special is happening in the Newark and Jersey City region, and mentoring is at its center. Our BBBS organization has been embedded in our community for nearly 15 years with direct access to some of our region's and nation's most credible leaders. From being honored by President Obama in the Oval Office, to being featured in national media, to being recognized by locally respected voices, our organization stands apart with its ability to attract high potential opportunities for positive, local change.

As our agency grows, there is a need for a dedicated financial analyst to manage our portfolio of grant funding. This individual will value the necessary "little" things that must be done on a daily basis that, in their aggregate, are part of "big" and meaningful impact.

Agency Overview

Our mission is to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth, and to be a credible social justice organization embedded in our community.

Today, we are a direct service organization serving three of the most populous counties in the state of New Jersey– which are home to communities with wide economic and social disparities for low-income families and people of color and have been hardest hit by the pandemic.
