When we cover non-profits, we end up focusing mostly on organizations that operate at the national level. The only reason for this is that these organizations typically get more exposure and are more likely to have multiple job openings. There are tons of locally focused organizations with great career opportunities, and many of them fill similar niches in different communities. FACETS is a perfect example. They’re a Fairfax, VA based non-profit that helps “parents, their children and individuals who suffer the effects of poverty.” FACETS is entirely focused on the Fairfax County area, so they can tailor the help they offer to the unique needs of the community.
Help from FACETS comes in the form of fulfilling “emergency shelter, food, and medical needs”, helping people “gain safe, sustainable and permanent housing,” and working to “end the cycle of poverty through educational, life skills and career counseling programs.” You can learn more about the specifics by reading up on FACETS’ Programs, but if you really wan to dive in deep, you should read the FACETS three year strategic plan. It’s filled with information that will help you better understand what they do, why they do it, and how they think that they can do better. If reading that inspires you, then take a look at FACETS’ jobs on Idealist. Right now they’re looking for a Development Coordinator, and it looks like it could be a great fit for a new or recent grad.
