Qualities We Seek

We’re completely committed to building and maintaining a great organizational culture that involves active employees – people looking to give back to the community, wanting to inspire creativity in others and motivate and empower one another.

What We Expect From Prospective Employees

We expect nothing more than your best ideas, creativity and work ethic. Since we are a community-based organization, we seek the input of employees who are community minded, people who will support the goals, vision, and mission of the African American Planning Commission and people who can help broaden the services of the organization by virtue of their skills, talents, and training.

What We Offer

In return for your services, we will offer you a competitive salary and a generous benefits package. We also offer an opportunity to work alongside some of the best, brightest, dedicated and funniest people you’ll ever meet.

Our goal is to provide the best quality services to those served and to have you grow with us for many years to come. We offer various shift schedules, free parking on our owned properties, friendly policies, and all the caffeine you desire. These are just some of the benefits you will enjoy as an employee of the African American Planning Commission — and there’s more…


It is our objective to hire and cultivate a diverse and multicultural workforce comprised of individuals from various nationalities, backgrounds, and cultures who are qualified for positions by virtue of job-related standards of education, training, and experience, and to comply with lawful employment practices.

Equal Employment Opportunity

We understand that embracing our differences makes us a stronger, better agency. We appreciate the importance of having a workforce that reflects the various communities in which we work, and we strive to create an inclusive environment where diverse employees want to work and where they can flourish professionally.

In furtherance of our culture, all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to actual or perceived race, color, creed, religion, national origin, ancestry, citizenship status, age, sex or gender (including pregnancy, childbirth and related medical conditions), gender identity or expression (including transgender status), sexual orientation, marital status, military service and veteran status, physical or mental disability, genetic information, or any other characteristic protected by applicable federal, state or local laws and ordinances.
