HomeWorks Trenton is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that runs a free, community-based, after school residential program where Black and Brown high-school girls can authentically express themselves while receiving academic and social-emotional tools to thrive despite living in a systemically unjust society. Our holistic, after-school residential program runs from Sunday evenings to Friday mornings. Scholars live in the HomeWorks house and are transported to and from their public schools to combat chronic absenteeism. Every afternoon, they engage in activities focused on academics, cultural life skills, women empowerment, and civic engagement. They then eat a family-style meal and stay overnight in our dorm with two full-time staff members. Our mission is to inspire and equip young women from marginalized communities to achieve their potential and positively transform the world around them by providing a supportive and educational residential environment.
Our team is searching for an experienced contracted driver to transport 10 - 12 scholars and staff during a year long youth camp. The students will attend the Trenton 9th Grade Academy and Trenton Central High School during the day and come to the residence located in Ewing in the afternoon to stay overnight. Ideally, you will commit not only to the students' safety, but also to the mission of HomeWorks. We want you to actively engage with our program, as you will work closely with our team and our students.
Given COVID-19 guidelines and procedures, HomeWorks will not operate as planned this Fall 2020. Instead, we plan to provide an optional, safe classroom for HomeWorks scholars to attend virtual school in addition to our adapted, in-person HomeWorks programming. Your responsibilities will include transporting 10 - 12 scholars and staff to and from their individual residence and the HomeWorks office located in Ewing. There will be no overnight boarding in our HomeWorks dormitory at this time. This decision reflects our organization’s priority on community health and safety as well as scholars’ social-emotional well-being.
