Location: Dodge City, KS + Other US-based
Please explore the link above to read about several openings now and in early 2021.
Lead For America is about to begin a period of tremendous growth. From the organization’s founding in late 2018, we have placed 100+ Fellows in 24 states, raised several million dollars from public, private, and philanthropic partners, and will be operating 5+ state and regional affiliates by the end of 2020. In the next year, we expect to grow from 8 full-time employees to 20, which will put us in position to significantly expand our fellowship and education programs, while also investing in deep place-making work in three “demonstration cities” to build comprehensive talent and civic education strategies in distressed communities.
We are looking for team members who are excited about being a part of this growth and helping shape a nationwide movement that will be enlisting hundreds, and soon thousands, of young leaders every year. We are seeking people who will see this role as a path to leadership development and professional growth. The right team additions will feel energized and excited by enormous responsibility and opportunities for creative autonomy and must be disciplined, self-motivated, highly organized, and have excellent oral and written skills.
Recently, to embody our values and best serve communities struggling with Brain Drain, we relocated our headquarters to Dodge City, Kansas (to learn more about our planned work in Dodge City, see here). Because we hope that all of our staff members will be actively involved in community building efforts, for most roles we are prioritizing hires for people who are willing to live and work in Dodge City, or are able to spend a significant amount of time there each month, after the pandemic is over. We understand that not everyone can relocate and still welcome applications from those applying to work from anywhere in the country (also, note that positions that allow or require working outside of Dodge City will note that in the below descriptions).
We’d love to have you join us. See the website for open positions and feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions!
