POSITION DESCRIPTION

Position Title: Modus Program Coordinator

Reports To: Director of Youth Development at Youth Services of Tulsa

Location: Tulsa, Oklahoma

Status: Full-Time; Exempt; Temporary March 1, 2017 through December 31, 2017

SUMMARY

Applications being accepted for a full-time Program Coordinator to implement a transportation program for youth, called “modus”.  The Coordinator will report to the Director of Youth Development at Youth Services of Tulsa (YST). This position will be responsible for recruiting volunteers and working with community partners to assist youth with transportation to social service and health related appointments.  Staff will also educate youth on transportation resources. The program will be hosted by YST until January 2018, with the intent of it launching into an independent non-profit after the completion of a successful pilot.

WHAT IS MODUS?

MODUS is a two-pronged transportation solution for Tulsa teens. modusSelect is a ride-sharing option that matches teen riders with volunteer drivers who use their own vehicles and receive mileage reimbursement for each completed trip. modusEd ensures students are trained on how to utilize Tulsa Transit to navigate the bus system to increase teen self-sufficiency. Successful implementation of modus will not only increase teen mobility but it also aims to increase teen ridership on Tulsa Transit, decrease member agency spending on transportation, and lower the no-show rate for teens who access social services. For the first time in Tulsa’s history, teens will not only have seamless access to all social services, but will gain increased independence through mobility.
