Since its founding in 1877, The Fresh Air Fund has provided life-changing summer experiences for children from New York City’s underserved communities.
Each year, thousands of children experience outdoor summer adventures through visits with volunteer host families and at The Fund’s sleepaway camps in upstate, NY. Fresh Air children also participate in academic enrichment and leadership programs throughout the school year.
We believe that investing in a child’s journey through life provides an opportunity for young people to learn, grow, and thrive in our city and beyond. The magic of a Fresh Air summer, full of new experiences and new friends, is simple yet transformative.
The Fresh Air Fund is seeking a Full-Time Project Manager for several Capital Projects.
The Fresh Air Fund's Sharpe Reservation has over 2,000 acres of beautiful land with lakes, ponds, streams and hiking trails through the woods. Located in the Hudson Highlands near Fishkill, NY, Sharpe Reservation is the site of The Fresh Air Fund's five summer camps, where 3,000 children get a break from city life each summer.
During the rest of the year, Camp Mariah, and Hidden Valley serve as residential facilities, where each year over 18,000 people from community and school groups as well as Girl Scout troops visit to learn about the environment. Groups also make use of the Sharpe Environmental Center, the Gustafson Planetarium, our high and low ropes courses, and the numerous nature trails across the Reservation. The Sharpe environmental programs enhance school curricula through a hands-on learning experience that can only be achieved in an outdoor setting.
The Project Manager will be stationed at The Fresh Air Fund’s Sharpe Reservation site in Fishkill, New York and will manage several capital projects on the Reservation. The Project Manager will serve as a project advisor and owner’s representative and be responsible for overseeing the timeliness, thoroughness, quality and budget of concurrent projects from inception through all phases to completion. The position will report directly to the Director of Sharpe Reservation and work in collaboration with several members of FAF Senior Management, consultants, vendors, and the Sharpe Facilities team.
