We are looking to form a team of competent individuals to grantseek and grant write for our organization. We plan to initially pursue grants that will allow our work to be adapted by volunteer groups within colleges and high schools across the nation. This will allow us to support youths at their most vulnerable and continue to use that support as a base as they move into the 25-34 age range described above.
As a member of our Grant Committee, you will be expected to remotely participate in team meetings, operating both cooperatively and independently as we work to pursue this task. We are thus looking for driven and passionate team players who will bring a variety of skills and perspectives to our work. Good written and oral communication, a basic understanding of non-profit structure and finance, analytic ability, creativity, and interpersonal skills are key.
If this description fits you, and our mission excites you, we hope to hear from you soon.
