The International Rescue Committee (IRC) in Atlanta is expanding our financial capability and asset-building services by launching an Individual Development Account (IDA) program. We are currently seeking an IDA Program Coordinator to implement this new program.
The IRC in Atlanta's Economic Empowerment (EE) department assists refugees in achieving self-sufficiency by operating economic development programs designed specifically to meet their unique needs. Within the EE department is the IDA program, which supports low-income families to increase their financial knowledge and capability, helps them to develop savings strategies, and uses grant dollars to match their savings, allowing clients to purchase assets such as vehicles, post-secondary education, business assets and homes.
The IDA Program Coordinator will coordinate a match-savings program to increase the ability of families to save money, promote participation in financial institutions, and increase asset acquisition through the establishment of savings that can be matched with grant funding. The IDA Program Coordinator is also responsible for file creation and management, facilitating trainings and meeting with clients and partners.
Undergraduate degree in finance, social work or related field preferred. At least two years of related professional social work experience.
