About

Eyes Wide Open Mentoring is looking for an energetic, collaborative and creative person who will lead our fundraising events team. The ideal candidate will have 2-3 years of experience planning and implementing fundraising events for small-medium-size nonprofit organizations and/or school PTAs/PTOs. The Events Manager should have a flexible schedule and be able to accommodate meetings and/or conference calls during regular business hours, as well as evenings and weekends on an as-needed basis. S/he should be calm under pressure, able to juggle multiple tasks, passionate about our mission, have ample personal or professional connections in the D.C. community, and have a good sense of humor. A car is required. The Events Manager will be expected to plan and implement a minimum of 6 events per calendar year with a net income of at least $40,000 total.

Eyes Wide Open Mentoring's mission is to empower homeless youth to rise above their immediate circumstances and take the steps necessary to enable them to have successful futures. We pair trained volunteer mentors to work one-on-one in developmental relationships with homeless youth to address the challenges associated with homelessness. Our program follows a formal model that uses evidence-based best mentoring practices and research-driven interventions in the area of trauma-informed care. Mentors help youth develop a realistic plan to cope with and overcome adversity, by expressing care, challenging growth, providing support, allowing mentees to have a voice, and expanding their opportunities. In addition to addressing the tough social-emotional issues that are associated with homelessness, youth have opportunities to participate in fun and educational activities through the inclusion of supplemental programming. Our holistic approach leads to partnerships with other organizations.
