Today we have an exclusive entry-level job in New York City for our readers! We were forwarded an e-mail (we were about 4th down the line) by a friend, and we wanted to share this excellent opportunity with our readers, since it can’t be found anywhere else on the Internet. Minds Matter is a not-for-profit organization that brings high-achieving and motivated high schools students from low-income families together with dedicated mentors to achieve academic excellence and expand educational horizons. There are only two employees (we’re not sure if that’s for the entire organization, or just the New York City chapter), an Executive Director and a Program and Development Assistant (PDA) at Minds Matter. The current PDA joined two years ago right out of college, but is leaving in the Summer for graduate school. That means Minds Matter needs a replacement. If you want to do some research on Minds Matter, their 2007 Annual Report has everything you could possibly want to know about the organization.
We don’t usually do this, but since the job description isn’t posted on Minds Matter’s website, we’ve copied and pasted the job description from the Word document that was attached to the e-mail we received.
Minds Matter is a not-for-profit organization that brings high-achieving and motivated high schools students from low-income families together with dedicated mentors to achieve academic excellence and expand educational horizons. Through Minds Matter, our carefully selected students gain the opportunity to attend challenging and exciting summer programs, and receive advice and support throughout the college application process. Founded in New York City in 1991, Minds Matter has since established a national presence with existing chapters in NYC, Boston, Denver, Chicago and Portland. In addition to committed leadership volunteers, Minds Matter’s staffing model includes two full-time employees, including the Program and Development Assistant, who supports both the NYC and national organizations. Additional chapters may be opened during the 2008-2009 school year.
Minds Matter seeks an enthusiastic, flexible, and organized self-starter to assist with a wide range of programs and operational areas. As the only employee working alongside the Executive Director at a dynamic and growing organization, the Program and Development Assistant will have the opportunity to make a large impact on both the NYC Chapter and the national organization. This full-time, entry-level position will include the opportunity to learn about a wide variety of non-profit activities including volunteer recruitment and management, program coordination, fundraising, finance and operations.
Reports To: Executive Director
Works With: NYC Executive Committee Members, National Executive Committee Members, and NYC Volunteers
Competitive compensation package includes annual salary in the low to mid $30’s, health and dental insurance, and two weeks of paid vacation.
