We (www.couplaguysandgals.com) are a rapidly growing national nonprofit that produces various volunteer events across the country. Less than 2 years old, we are already over 3,000 influential volunteers in 3 cities providing direct-assistance to any causes in our 3 segments: People, Animals and the Environment in need.
To manage that growth, and to keep our curated culture intact, we developed a formalized leadership development program to empower and engage our volunteer base into leading the local chapters. The Leadership Development Program will have somewhere between 180-240 individuals committed (1 year long) within the next 8 months. We have detailed responsibilities for each role, accountability measures, feedback mechanisms and learning modules. However, this program needs to be further developed and enhanced greatly.
The Leadership Development Program is the achilles-heal of this organization. If we cannot engage and keep our leaders, we cannot grow across the country as planned. This program needs a master architect that has built leadership programs (not sales programs, but leadership). We have a great sense of urgency to get this tightened up and ready for the new leaders.
We need to establish onboarding and evaluation metrics, utilize learning modules with detailed videos and articles, make our accountability measures easier to maintain and open communication better. The current leadership program is around 70% of the way there, but we need someone creative and with a strong leadership background to take it the rest of the way to being a world class leadership program. We are currently applying for IACET (iacet.org) accreditation.
This is a LONG-TERM position, not a quick one. Once the leadership program is established and enhanced, this position will change to one of maintenance. Our entire organization works remotely, so you will be like anyone else. We will need you to help the program move along and run smoothly. That will include weekly conf calls, maintenance of accountability measures, further enhancements of the program and recruiting of leaders for the program.
If you feel you are right for this position, please send information on the leaderships programs you’ve studied under or helped established for certain organizations. Please include examples so we can make an educated decision. More relevant information the better. Please let us know if you can start right away.
The job will be paid hourly and start with 20 hours per week. After a week, if we are on the right track, more hours (per week) can be allowed. Once the development program is further developed, the maintenance portion will take from 10-20 hours per week and will be ongoing. So, keep that in mind when bidding as some of your hourly charges are listed for short term contracts. As a developing nonprofit, we are unable to engage in high per hour charges and would prefer someone who appreciates and understands the job in a long-term and steady role. Thank you.
