About

Join a team of people who are truly passionate about providing hope and encouragement to the homeless youth of our community.

As the Co-Executive Director, you will have the responsibility of supervising all the activities and operations of the StandUp For Kids Seattle Chapter in close coordination and partnership with the other Co-Executive Director for the chapter. Our current ED has been with StandUp For Kids Seattle since 2008 and she is looking for a partner to bring in fresh ideas and energy and to assist in guiding the chapter in exciting new directions.

Together, you will have the opportunity to set the strategy for the chapter and to establish programs that have a great impact in helping homeless and street youth in Seattle, in accordance with our mission to "end the cycle of youth homelessness."

Having the ability to see things at a 30,000 foot view--as well as close-up--will enable you to work with the other members of the Leadership Team to finalize our strategic direction and plans in a number of important areas such as: building our brand and increasing awareness of our cause in the local community, obtaining donations to sustain our core activities, building relationships with other community agencies, and building and maintaining a dedicated and vibrant volunteer base.

Creativity, leadership skills, innovative ideas and previous experience in building and leading strong teams will be winning components of this position. Truly, the possibilities are endless if you know how to build, energize and mobilize your team and lend your best ideas to help the Chapter excel!
