K-12 Program Manager

Toronto /
Canada Learning Code /
Full Time
Due to COVID-19 Guidelines, this role is 100% remote / work from home until further notice. Canada Learning Code is committed to the health, safety and well-being of our team and community.  

Hi! I’m Nancy Madonik, COO at Canada Learning Code. I have been with CLC for about 1.5 years, though my relationship with the org started in 2012 when my daughter attended the first-ever Girls Learning Code camp!  CLC is Canada's leading national charity championing digital literacy education and has evolved since it was originally founded as Ladies Learning Code in 2011. We place a special emphasis on women, transgender and beyond binary adults and youth, people with accessibility requirements, racialized people and new comers to Canada.  

Our goal is to create 10,000,000 meaningful learning experiences by 2027 so that all Canadians have access to the knowledge they need to prosper in our digital world.  To that end, we are looking to build a team of dedicated leaders to help us achieve those goals and further our mission of bringing accessible computer science to communities across Canada so everyone can create with technology. We know how important diversity is in creating solutions for ALL people and our vision is one where all people have the skills and confidence to harness the power of technology to create a better and more inclusive future.  

We are looking for a mission-driven, experienced, inclusive leader to join our team as the K-12 Program Manager. As the K-12 Program Manager you’ll be the subject matter expert on the educator community, and will work in collaboration with our Design & Training and Community Success & Partnerships teams to deliver on our K-12 Program goals. This role is integral to support the effective design, delivery, and quality of our K-12 programs (helping to shape youth and educator insights) as well as our goal to grow our educator community and provide relevant, repeatable and sustainable programming. 
Though the last year has certainly gone differently than we expected it to, at CLC, we remain focused on our mission. Today, we are delivering live-online learning experiences across the country for adults, youth and educators. To date, Canada Learning Code has reached over 600,000 learners through an in-person experience.  

This is a full time, salaried role. This role will report to the newly created Director, Brand Strategy; in the interim you will report to the COO. 

Do your values and goals align with our mission? We want to hear from you!
