We Are New York College Ambassadors/University Recruiter
Our office recently launched a Community Campaign based on the nine episode Emmy nominated series We Are New York. The campaign strives to reach the tens of thousands of New Yorkers who need help with English through free conversation classes in community centers, public schools and religious institutions. We’re looking for a University Recruiter(s) at CUNY who would be part of the campaign to help us identify host sites, conduct outreach to students who are interested in facilitating classes for adult New Yorkers (mostly new immigrants), and manage them at their individual campuses or Universities.
