Junior Achievement North - Development Operations VISTA
The Minnesota Alliance With Youth VISTA program places members in nonprofits, government, and schools in the Twin Cities to create, connect, and leverage resources to address education inequities such as the opportunity and achievement gaps. We build capacity, coordinate efforts that bridge and build the integration of school and community-wide support for youth, and actively engage youth as agents of change in closing these gaps. Our 20 person cohort meets regularly for professional development, team building, and peer support. This position is placed at Junior Achievement North (JA North). JA's mission is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. Our K-12 programs empower students to be ready for the real world by showing them how to earn and manage money, excel in their careers, and apply entrepreneurial thinking to the workplace. JA programs align to three pathways: Financial Literacy, Work and Career Readiness, and Entrepreneurship. Through a continuum of progressive learning experiences, students acquire the competencies needed to reach their full potential. JA’s unique program model leverages thousands of volunteers who deliver experiential lessons to students. While we work with students of all backgrounds, JA is particularly committed to students with the greatest need for enhanced learning opportunities, including youth of color and students from low-income backgrounds. JA serves students, educators, and partner schools throughout MN, ND, and western WI. Annually, we reach more than 65,000 students with more than 20 programs. The Development Operations VISTA will build the prospecting and fundraising capacity of the organization. By identifying and securing revenue from new and increased donors, JA will impact more systemically excluded students and communities. Apply today if you are interested in building or have skills related to fundraising, writing, procedures, databases, and reporting.
