Full Job Description

POSITION: MIRC is seeking candidates for a full-time Supervising Program Coordinator position based in any of our Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, or Ypsilanti offices to join its dynamic and committed unaccompanied children’s legal services team.

DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM: MIRC is a legal resource center for immigrant communities. The three pillars of our work are: 1) direct legal services; 2) systemic advocacy; and 3) community education and engagement. MIRC is part of Michigan Statewide Advocacy Services (MSAS), a non-profit law firm providing free legal services to low income and senior persons through several statewide programs. MSAS is administered by the Michigan Advocacy Program (MAP), which provides access to the justice system for those who need it the most through civil legal aid offices and statewide advocacy programs. MAP’s mission is to advance the safety, independence, and economic stability of those most affected by poverty, racism, and other structurally oppressive systems by increasing access to justice and working for systemic solutions.

BENEFITS: This is a full-time position with a starting salary of $42,000 depending on experience and education.
