The Independent Drivers Guild-IAMAW seeks a Program Coordinator for a new partnership with the Black Car Fund to provide mental health and wellness resources for for-hire vehicle drivers. The position will begin as part-time and potentially increase to full-time. The Program Coordinator will be a member of a team that designs and runs a schedule of workshops, events, outreach, and counseling to support driver mental health and wellness. The Program Coordinator will have primary responsibility for responding to phone inquiries, entering data, phone banking, staffing a welcome desk during open hours, billing insurance providers, and other administrative tasks detailed below.

The Independent Drivers Guild (IDG) is a nonprofit affiliate of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAMAW) bringing together app-based drivers in New York City to win better pay, benefits, and dignity on the job. Since our launch in 2016, our campaigns have put millions of dollars in drivers pockets, first through a campaign that established the right to be able to accept tips through apps, and through landmark regulations that have won an average 44% pay increase and established the first-ever pay floor in the industry. We seek to build on this foundation of economic gains through classes, organizing, and other programming that empowers and enhances the mental health and well-being of drivers.

The Program Coordinator will play a crucial role in the success of this initiative. This position will be based in our Queens and Brooklyn offices for the initial 2-3 months, and will move to our new Bronx location when it opens.
