Temporary Program Coordinator

New York, United States


Owned by the City of New York, the High Line is programmed, maintained, and operated by Friends of the High Line, in partnership with NYC Parks. We raise nearly 100% of the High Line’s annual budget.

Through excellence in operations, stewardship, innovative programming, and world-class design, we seek to engage the vibrant and diverse community on and around the High Line, and to raise the essential private funding to help complete the High Line’s construction and create an endowment for its future operations.

The High Line Network is a program within Friends of the High Line that brings together innovative infrastructure reuse projects and their leaders from across North America into a broader learning community. This position reports to the vice president of the High Line Network.


The program coordinator will administer and assist in the execution of various initiatives related to the expansion and growth of the High Line Network. The coordinator will focus on planning the October 2019 Network symposium, a convening of over 50 infrastructure reuse projects around the country. The coordinator will work closely with the vice president and manager of the Network to support day-to-day coordination, research, and management of tasks both within the department and the High Line, as well as with our external partners.

This full-time, non-exempt position runs from July 2019 – December 2019, with the possibility to extend.
