EngageNC is looking for new Board members in 2023. After a slow-down during the COVID Pandemic, we plan to increase our programming and outreach efforts. To that end, we are looking for new board members with experience in either:

Public Relations / Social Media Outreach / Website Maintenance and Updates
Legal Expertise , particularly contract law.
Small business experience
Human Resources experience

We are a working board and members can expect to give 2-4 hours a week for mostly remote engagement. Communication takes place mostly via email, text, video call or phone. Board members are expected to attend 5-6 Board meetings per year (all pre-scheduled), currently via Zoom. We would like our board members to live in the North Carolina Triangle (Wake, Durham, Orange Counties).

About EngageNC

Location:

9650 Strickland Rd., Suite 103-122, Raleigh, NC 27615, US

Mission Statement

EngageNC’s Mission is to create jobs for adults with Autism/Intellectual Developmental Disabilites in the NC Triangle through community-focused employment innovations.

Description

EngageNC (formerly "The Power of the Dream") was founded in 2008 by a group of self-advocates and families in order to assist others in better understanding micro-enterprise and asset building. As the organization connected with more individuals, it was clear that many job seekers with Autism/IDD faced significant barriers to employment.

In 2013, EngageNC opened HANDmeUPs Thrift to provide direct employment opportunities and to demonstrate the value of employing adults with Autism/IDD. Over the years, EngageNC has continued to provide advice and resources to micro-entrepreneurs and businesses who are intentional about hiring adults with Autism/IDD.
