Helping Link/Một Dấu Nối is non-profit organization that works to make the transition from Vietnam to the US easier to manage for recent immigrants. For over 25 years, Helping Link/Một Dấu Nối has committed to help many Vietnamese integrate into American society through our ESL, computer/iPad, and citizenship programs as well as information and referral services.
The challenges of moving to a new continent and learning a new culture are immense, at times overwhelming. Helping Link is here to pay forward the help they received so that families remain inter-generational, connected, and united. This source of empowerment and knowledge in a safe environment allowed many of Helping Link’s clients to successfully achieve their goals to improve their English skills, become U.S. citizens, and find opportunities to grow and thrive.
Helping Link is looking to increase their team to support the increased demands of the community and build our agencies capacity, and they’re advertising 2 ways to get involved.
The Program Manager position is a full-time position reporting to the Executive Director. This person will play a critical role in managing the day-to-day effectiveness of all operations, including our programs, bookkeeping, and supervision of the volunteer corps. S/he will play a collaborative role in developing and implementing systems that increase the effectiveness and efficiency of our work and supporting our ability to grow and expand our impact.
