  • Overview

    This fellowship is housed within the Office of Strategic Planning at Brooklyn Public Library (BPL). The Office of Strategic Planning is a think and do tank for a large, rapidly changing public institution. BKLYN Incubator is an innovation fund administered through this department that supports progressive library programs at BPL by providing professional development, mentorship, and resources.  The purpose of BKLYN Incubator is to provide resources and training to build programs and services from the ground up and support ideas that are responsive to community needs.


    The BKLYN Incubator Fellowship is a temporary, part time role to launch replication of a selection of previous incubator programs.  This is a paid position that will work closely with the BKLYN Incubator Manager to create the application process, gather team leads from previous iterations to deliver workshops, coordinate the selection process, and assist with implementation of replicated programs.  This role will learn the systems in place for the current BKLYN Incubator process and coordinate the entire process for replication funding.  This position will require an autonomous project manager that is eager to build from the success of the original programs and create an opportunity to give those programs a new life and an expanded reach.
