California South Odyssey of the Mind is looking to expand its outreach and implement additional recognition programs in our area, but like most small non-profit firms, our need for leadership is ongoing. This is where you come in! This is a great opportunity for anyone with leadership skills who would like to build those skills serving kids in a creative problem solving program across Southern California.

What we are looking for:

  • A self-motivated individual who can operate autonomously and work well with a team
  • A great communicator: writing and speaking must be your forte
  • A relationship-builder: skills in reaching out to local school districts and other potential leaders is a benefit
  • Reliable: leaders in Odyssey of the Mind must be able to respond to all Odyssey-related communication and participate in all meetings and training sessions
Benefits you get:
  • A fantastic resume-building opportunity: if you're looking to get into leadership and need some practical experience, here it is!
  • Start from scratch: there is only upside, no downsides/nothing to lose
  • We are a smaller non-profit, so teamwork is essential. Gain important leadership, problem solving, and teamwork skills.

We are seeking committed leaders for regional board positions, regional directors, and other leadership opportunities. Knowledge of Odyssey of the Mind is not needed, but a commitment to the program is!

We look forward to hearing from you and seeing how your leadership skills can help our organization grow!
