Associate Portfolio Partner – Community & Workplace Civic Engagement (Remote) In this role as Associate Portfolio Partner for Community & Workplace Civic Engagement, you will partner with business leaders and policymakers to strengthen youth civic participation within their workplaces and communities. You will be an indispensable thought leader in the civic space, growing a diverse portfolio of progressive initiatives that focus on young adults (ages 14 – 24).   Your portfolio will include: - The Civic Spring Fellowship is an opportunity for young people to lead a community project that bolsters civic knowledge while also driving local policy change, increased voter registration, and trust in institutions. Fellowships fund up to $1,800 as individual youth stipends or $25,000 as grants to organizations. An independent evaluation of the Civic Spring Program pilot showed that youth participants honed a variety of civic skills, including their social-emotional learning capacities, their abilities to navigate civic institutions, and their strategies for working with stakeholders. Young people identified that the project helped them navigate a variety of civic institutions; find, strengthen, and apply their voice; gain important life skills; and take care of their mental health.  Moreover, the work of Civic Spring’s initial grantees led to lasting, real-world outcomes for their communities. - There is a tremendous amount of work and momentum building around America’s 250th The C&S team is deeply engaged in multiple projects that are part of this work (including President Raj Vinnakota serving as co-chair of the America250 Federal Commission’s advisory council on civics and civic engagement), and this group of work will fall within this portfolio. - TheBrewer Fellowship to Unite America brings cross-partisan leaders in the democracy reform movement together to build a political system that functions for all Americans. Most fellows are senior leaders from small, policy-reform nonprofits focused on electing pro-reform candidates, bringing about structural change in our system of government to boost competition and accountability, or building reform movement infrastructure.   In partnership with our president and other colleagues, you will strategize about new ventures and ways to further engage the business community over the life of the portfolio, including co-facilitating sessions with business leaders to both build your own skillset as well as our organization’s understanding of the civic knowledge assessment space. You will also collaborate closely with colleagues who are focused on complementary portfolio areas including (a) youth civic development, (b) higher education and inclusive campuses, and (c) civic learning field investment. We are thinking beyond the high school Civics class, imagining a holistic approach to civic learning and practice. This will include both high-quality, engaging content and opportunities to practice civic skills and develop civic dispositions in classrooms and after school on the sports field, at summer camp, in afterschool programs, in libraries, online, and at home.   In an age of fracture and distrust, we must fundamentally rethink the ways we prepare young people with the knowledge, skills, dispositions, and capacities to be successful citizens in our democracy. American constitutional democracy has always depended on citizens who understand its premise and promise, who seek out diverse perspectives and ideas, respect each other’s differences, and believe in a common future. To preserve democracy now and strengthen it for the long haul, we need to create and rapidly test an infusion of new ideas from a diverse set of people and across the political spectrum.   By its very nature, civic learning must be cross-partisan work, designed to encourage understanding and trust. Collaboration will not always be easy, but it is the only way forward. Your work will demand an exceptional display of civic skills and courage – you will build social trust and model the very skills and disposition that we want others to emulate and teach. You will be serving as a neutral arbiter, developing sustained funding support from a partnership of high-impact donors across the ideological spectrum who commit to doing this work collaboratively.   Key Focus Areas As with all members of our portfolio teams, you will work closely with colleagues in our marketing and communications, development, and operating functions to ensure that we are doing the work that is in the best interest of the organization and your portfolio. This requires an ability to be an “institutional owner” first while also thinking about the interests of your specific portfolio. - You will spend approximately 40 percent of your time managing a portfolio of programs. You will provide support for staff in setting program goals, strategizing for growth/scalability, adapting to new information, troubleshooting issues, developing metrics and reporting on outcomes, etc. You will spend approximately 10 percent of your time working with the people who are leading our existing ventures and another 30 percent of your time expanding the portfolio, developing programs, and working with the development team on fundraising. - You will spend approximately 30 percent of your time cultivating relationships with key stakeholders and community organizations (including businesses, libraries, museums, online games, and afterschool entities), keeping a pulse on updates in the field of civic learning, understanding all points of view, identifying common ground, and building support for and advancing solutions so that all participants feel heard and respected. - You will spend approximately 20 percent of your time supporting the field-building portfolio for civic learning, working with the president and other senior leaders. - You will spend approximately 10 percent of your time working with the marketing and communications team focusing on social media strategies to engage with the 14-24 years age group, leveraging our existing internal team capacities and external consultants.   About Us For the past 75 years, the Institute for Citizens & Scholars (C&S) has prepared leaders and engaged networks of people and organizations to meet urgent education challenges, helping shape an informed, productively engaged, and hopeful citizenry. We are now rebuilding how we develop citizens in our country in three distinct ways: - we support young people to be better citizens, - we network civic leaders to ensure a resilient democracy, and - we prepare a diverse and responsive next generation of college faculty and educators. To sustain a flourishing civil society, we bring groups together as a force for progress on the nation’s biggest education challenges. We bring a breadth and depth of experience in civic learning and civil society development. We also utilize a multi-disciplinary, cross-partisan, and cross-sector approach that harnesses data and technology to tackle the issues at scale since the most urgent and complex societal challenges cannot be solved by one field, party, or sector alone.   We work to create not just a better educated but a more just and inclusive America. We have long been a proponent of excellence in teaching by actively promoting more gender and racial diversity in American higher education, improving the quality of K–12 education in our country, strengthening STEM teaching in high-need schools, and improving understanding of American history and civics. And now we are dramatically expanding the scope of our work to focus on key determinants of a flourishing civil society.   We’re on a mission to ensure that young people gain a deep understanding of our history, culture, government, institutions, and current affairs from diverse sources and perspectives – to vote, think critically, and have concern for the welfare of people of all backgrounds in their communities and across the nation; to debate and learn from each other, and work across difference to form a more perfect union. We believe everyone across the left, right, and center has a role to play to save and strengthen democracy. We’re leveraging our 75 years of unrivaled expertise, data, and network of funders and practitioners – including 27,000 world-leading fellows – to tackle this challenge on a massive scale.   Qualifications - Five to ten years of experience in social enterprise (ideally developing youth engagement programs outside of a traditional school environment). You are effective in conversations with major donors, investors, coalition partners, and business leaders at the national and community-level, as well as other key stakeholders. - You have a strong working knowledge of social media, including an understanding of how to leverage different channels as a positive force to support your goals. - Ideally, you have familiarity with, or connections within, the social and emotional learning community, including youth development work in identity development, critical thinking, bridging divides, civic responsibility, character formation, decision making, teamwork, and/or media literacy. You may have developed those skills while working on a pilot project within a larger nonprofit, as part of a start-up effort, within an established faith-based and/or service organization, or in a youth or educational system. - Ideally, you have experience building a team involved with pilots and scaling up programs. - You are welcome to work remotely, but you’ll need to routinely visit the Princeton office (at least once a month), be willing to take meetings when key stakeholders are available, and travel as needed.   Attributes - You can persuasively make the case for support for your outside-of-school approach. You are equally effective in working with funders, policymakers, educators, researchers, and nonprofit organizations. - You carefully listen to people, understand their needs and challenges, and find common ground with them. You can synthesize and distill their perspectives, notice what is not said, and find both points of agreement and disagreement as well as gaps in the conversation. - You are thoughtful and can hold competing ideas in your head at the same time, while easily shifting gears and reprioritizing to take advantage of opportunities. - You are a deft communicator, avoiding any perception of ideological bias, and can effectively share ideas with any audience in a conversation, in long-form written material, and on social media. - You can be trusted. You are viewed as an honest broker, a trusted, neutral, unbiased arbiter. You know who should be in the room for key conversations and know how to connect people and organizations to achieve successful outcomes. - You are relentlessly, pragmatically outcomes-focused, accountable for delivering results that can be measured and replicated. You can define success and then drive its delivery. - You are an inspiring leader, a problem solver, and a change agent. Other people want to work with you. - You demonstrate humility in your willingness to roll up your sleeves, listen to input, and do whatever is needed to deliver an impeccable work product. - You have an entrepreneurial mindset that allows you to calmly navigate through ambiguity and bring ideas to fruition.   What’s Attractive to the Right Candidate? - This portfolio has enormous growth potential, and you will be an integral part of its continued success. This is a high-visibility position where you will lead discussions with leaders from across this country and engage youth in exciting new programs. - Your work will create a civic learning ecosystem capable of producing future generations of well-informed, productively engaged, and patriotic citizens. We have already gained credibility across the political spectrum and there is a broad consensus that we need to fundamentally rethink and enrich the ways we prepare young people to be successful citizens in a democracy. Funders are enthusiastic and committed to revitalizing our system of civic education, especially the learning happening outside of the classroom. Our success will depend on building a broad and diverse coalition of supporters and there is plenty of common ground from which to move forward. - We believe every person and sector has a role to play to create the future of our country. In the next five years, we seek to unite the left, center, and right across all sectors to tackle this interpersonal challenge, close the divide, and create, test, and develop game-changing ideas that make democracy function for everyone. C&S has an established track record of building a field of civic education outside of the classroom, convening experts from diverse viewpoints, creating the space for productive conversations, and distilling information into applications with real impact. - You will be working with, and supported by, people who have a long track record of successfully launching breakthrough social enterprise initiatives. Our senior leadership team has experience in program design and operations, higher education, communications, fundraising, financial management, IT/data systems, and research and evaluation. We bring experiences ranging from the classroom to the quad and from Main Street to Wall Street in both the nonprofit and private sectors. We are values-based leaders who pride ourselves on creating an organization where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Our team is constantly learning and deeply curious; we give and request feedback constantly because we aspire to create and contribute to best-in-class work. - We offer competitive compensation and benefits including 4 weeks of vacation plus sick leave; medical, dental, LTD, Life, ADD, and vision insurance; employee assistance programs; and a 10% 4013(b) contribution.   Our Core Values - We are constantly learning and improving. We test and refine new ideas and learn from our mistakes. We dare to question old solutions. We seek opportunities to collaborate with our diverse team; different backgrounds, skill sets, and thinking styles give us valuable new perspectives. We share knowledge and insights with each other to help us grow as individuals and as an organization. We provide straightforward, constructive, and timely feedback, and we receive feedback with openness as useful information that supports our development as individuals and as an organization. - We value diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging for all. We believe that we are stronger for our differences, and we acknowledge, respect, and appreciate them. We actively work with and learn from everyone—across all demographics, backgrounds, ideologies, and geographies. We identify areas where we differ and, for the good of the organization and each other, we explore and engage with differing perspectives. - We are gracious and grateful in all that we do. We invest in our relationships with warmth and a sense of humor. We express gratitude to all of our colleagues and stakeholders. While we strive for excellence, we recognize that no one is perfect. We give others the benefit of the doubt and act with kindness and integrity. - We are attentive and intentional. We are aware of the needs of the world and those around us so that our work has a real impact. Our work is mission driven, and we know the “whys”— both large and small — behind what we do. Recognizing that details matter, we are equally committed to quality.   To Apply We encourage you to apply even if your experience is not a 100% match with the position description; we will consider people from a variety of backgrounds and career experiences.   Use the "Apply" button on this page or simply email your resume to Bob Corlett at resumes@staffingadvisors.com with “C&S – Associate Portfolio Partner #2022-2720 SA” as the subject of the email.   Please note: our practice is to not disclose the salary ranges our clients would consider.

Program Director, College Presidents Consortium (Remote)   As the lead for our college presidents consortium, you will work with a select group of academic leaders who are stepping up to the challenge of strengthening our civic infrastructure and rebuilding civil society. These 15-25 leaders are drawn from higher education campuses across all demographics, backgrounds, ideologies, and geographies, including Ivy league campuses, large public flagship universities, HBCUs and other minority-serving institutions, elite liberal arts colleges, STEM-focused institutions, and institutions based in faith traditions. In this role, you will be at the very center of the national conversation about how higher education can help to cultivate civic skills, civic capacity, civic knowledge (basic understanding of the principles, history, and structure of the United States’ civic life), and civic dispositions (willingness to engage with one’s fellow citizens across differences to build trust, achieve common goals, and broaden understanding).   These college presidents are volunteering their time to share a wide spectrum of perspectives, wrestle with uncomfortable ideas, and explore civic learning and practice as a core component of higher education. As the lead for this growing program, you will carefully guide the agenda for meetings with the presidents and oversee research studies to assess civic learning approaches in higher education and connect civic development efforts with student outcomes on college campuses. In addition to a robust research agenda, you will build relationships with the presidents and facilitate group discussions, work with our development team to identify partnerships with funders, synthesize relevant research findings into reports, and develop content for programs. You will also keep presidents informed about crucial issues and trends related to civic learning and host check-ins as needed in response to current events. The leadership consortium will become a periodic platform for issuing joint statements about civic learning and current events, helping to increase visibility and credibility for higher education in this arena, with you serving as convenor, drafter, research leader, and communications partner.   Reporting to the Vice President, and working closely with our senior leadership team, you will help to strengthen democracy for the long haul by developing a critical mass of young people who are well-informed, productively engaged for the common good, and hopeful about the future. You’ll work in collaboration with colleagues across the organization who are focused on complementary portfolio areas, including youth civic development, higher education fellowships, community and workplace civic engagement, and civic learning field investments.   About Us For the past 75 years, the Institute for Citizens & Scholars (C&S) has prepared leaders and engaged networks of people and organizations to meet urgent education challenges, helping shape an informed, productively engaged, and hopeful citizenry. We are now rebuilding how we develop citizens in our country in three distinct ways: - we support young people to be better citizens, - we network civic leaders to ensure a resilient democracy, and - we prepare a diverse and responsive next generation of college faculty and educators.   To sustain a flourishing civil society, we bring groups together as a force for progress on the nation’s biggest education challenges. We bring a breadth and depth of experience in civic learning and civil society development. We also utilize a multi-disciplinary, cross-partisan, and cross-sector approach that harnesses data and technology to tackle the issues at scale, since the most urgent and complex societal challenges cannot be solved by one field, party, or sector alone.   We work to create not just a better educated but a more just and inclusive America. We have long been a proponent of excellence in teaching by actively promoting both innovation and diversity in American higher education, improving the quality of K–12 education in our country, strengthening STEM teaching in high-need schools, and improving understanding of American history and civics. And now we are dramatically expanding the scope of our work to focus on key determinants of a flourishing civil society.   We’re on a mission to ensure that young people gain a deep understanding of our history, culture, government, institutions, and current affairs from diverse sources and perspectives—to vote, think critically, and have concern for the welfare of people of all backgrounds in their communities and across the nation; to debate and learn from each other; and to work across difference to form a more perfect union. We believe everyone across the left, right, and center has a role to play to save and strengthen democracy. We’re leveraging our 75 years of unrivaled expertise, data, and network of funders and practitioners—including 27,000 world-leading fellows—to tackle this challenge on a massive scale.   Over the next year, we anticipate that you will: - Develop strong working relationships across the consortium leaders and institutions, and with other stakeholders across the field of civic learning, including funders, policymakers, and nonprofit leaders. - Host an annual presidential summit to address urgent needs and key progress; produce public statements on such issues as campus approaches to free expression, the cultivation of democratic norms in a campus community, and the renewal of the perception of higher education as a public good. - Oversee research projects, including the development of metrics and key performance indicators. (For example, as we undertake a national project to better understand different approaches to civil discourse, you will work with practitioners, researchers, and faculty leaders to identify and assess what’s happening on different campuses.) - Work with internal C&S colleagues to prepare for summits and meetings by developing thoughtful agendas, preparation materials, and follow-up strategies. - Work with the development team to identify potential philanthropic support for the work. Assist in drafting funding proposals.   Qualifications - Experience in higher education administration. - Experience with academic research, particularly in the social sciences or education. - Experience leading difficult, cross-partisan projects that accomplished something notable and transformative. - Effectiveness at moderating and leading high-stakes conversations (with major donors, investors, coalition partners, or other high-profile stakeholders). - You are welcome to work remotely, but you’ll need to routinely visit the Princeton office each month for Team Week (three collective, collaborative in-office days) and be willing to travel to in-person meetings when key stakeholders are available, including two to three site visits per year to partner campuses.   Attributes - You are intellectually curious and willing to push the boundaries of intellectual norms, challenge established channels, and figure out new approaches to complex challenges. - You can persuasively make the case for support for your approach. You are equally effective working with funders, policymakers, educators, researchers, and nonprofit organizations. - You carefully listen to people, understand their needs and challenges, and find common ground with them. You can synthesize and distill their perspectives, notice what is not said, and find both points of agreement and disagreement as well as gaps in the conversation. - You are thoughtful and can hold competing ideas in your head at the same time. - You are a deft communicator, avoiding any perception of ideological bias, and can effectively share ideas with any audience in conversation, in long-form written material, and on social media. - You can be trusted. You are viewed as an honest broker, a trusted, neutral, unbiased arbiter. You know who should be in the room for key conversations and know how to connect people and organizations to achieve successful outcomes. - You are relentlessly, pragmatically outcomes-focused, accountable for delivering results that can be measured and replicated. - You are an inspiring leader, a problem solver, and a change agent. Other people want to work with you.   What’s Attractive to the Right Candidate? - You will be working with some of the most prestigious academic leaders in America, working on some of the most pressing issues facing higher education. This program has the potential to be one of the cornerstones of our work. Your contributions will help the program reach its full potential. - C&S has an established track record of building a field of civic education outside of the classroom, convening experts from diverse viewpoints, creating the space for productive conversations, and distilling information into applications with real impact. - You will have the opportunity to lead a highly impactful research agenda. In the next five years, we seek to unite the left, center, and right across all sectors to tackle this interpersonal challenge, close the divide, and create, test, and develop game-changing ideas that make democracy function for everyone. - Your work will help to create a civic learning ecosystem capable of producing future generations of well-informed, productively engaged, and patriotic citizens. We have already gained credibility across the political spectrum and there is broad consensus that we need to fundamentally rethink and enrich the ways we prepare young people to be successful citizens in a democracy. - You will be working with, and supported by, people who have a long track record of successfully launching breakthrough social enterprise initiatives. Our senior leadership team has experience in program design and operations, higher education, communications, fundraising, financial management, IT/data systems, and research and evaluation. They also bring experiences ranging from the classroom to the quad and from Main Street to Wall Street in both the nonprofit and private sectors. - We offer competitive compensation and benefits including 4 weeks of vacation plus sick leave; medical, dental, LTD, Life, ADD, and vision insurance; employee assistance programs; and 10% 4013(b) contribution.   Our Core Values - We are constantly learning and improving. We test and refine new ideas and learn from our mistakes. We dare to question old solutions. We seek opportunities to collaborate with our diverse team; different backgrounds, skill sets, and thinking styles give us valuable new perspectives. We share knowledge and insights with each other to help us grow as individuals and as an organization. We provide straightforward, constructive, and timely feedback, and we receive feedback with openness as useful information that supports our development as individuals and as an organization. - We value diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging for all. We believe that we are stronger for our differences, and we acknowledge, respect, and appreciate them. We actively work with and learn from everyone—across all demographics, backgrounds, ideologies, and geographies. We identify areas where we differ and, for the good of the organization and each other, we explore and engage with differing perspectives. - We are gracious and grateful in all that we do. We invest in our relationships with warmth and a sense of humor. We express gratitude to all of our colleagues and stakeholders. While we strive for excellence, we recognize that no one is perfect. We give others the benefit of the doubt and act with kindness and integrity. - We are attentive and intentional. We are aware of the needs of the world and those around us so that our work has a real impact. Our work is mission driven, and we know the “whys”— both large and small— behind what we do.

Chief Executive Officer There’s nothing more appealingly primal than the crackle of a warm fire or the succulence of smoky, grilled food. Maybe this is why more than 80 percent of U.S. households own an outdoor grill, barbecue, or smoker and more than 50 percent have at least one fireplace or freestanding stove (hearth products). Grilling is an integral part of how Americans celebrate national holidays like Independence Day, Labor Day, and even Thanksgiving, and we all have warm memories of sitting with family and friends around a fire.   As leader of the $5.9 million Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association (HPBA), you will oversee a team of 23 and cultivate collaborative relationships with members and affiliates across North America. You will evaluate our member structure and value proposition to ensure that we are meeting the needs of our members, from our largest manufacturing corporations to our smallest family businesses. You will listen to, and fairly consider, a variety of perspectives when making strategic decisions, and rally disparate groups into a community with a shared sense of purpose, driving member engagement and ensuring HPBA’s continued success.   Although manufacturing members generate most of the revenue for HPBA, our 12 regional affiliates are integral to the success of the entire community, with a pulse on the local needs of retailers, distributors, manufacturers’ representatives, and service companies. Effective government relations (at the federal, state, and local levels) is paramount to our industry’s future sustainability. As CEO, you will oversee the government affairs team in tackling emerging issues and leveraging grassroots strategies to engage members in every community.   As CEO, you will explore ways to diversify funding and add additional revenue streams. You will oversee our exhibitions/events team in finding ways to innovate our primary source of revenue—the HPBExpo—to attract a broader audience and increase participation. You will also guide the strategic direction of educational offerings in the National Fireplace Institute®, the professional certification division of the Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Education Foundation (HPBEF).   As we explore new opportunities to fuel HPBA’s growth, you will work closely with the board of directors to facilitate strategic planning and collaborate with HPBA staff to prioritize time and resources for the greatest impact. The board welcomes your guidance on what issues we should be attentive to, and your fresh ideas to blaze our path forward. Your ability to gather input, communicate effectively, build consensus, and drive action will be key to your success in this role. Key Focus Areas - Business model innovation. Manage the annual budget and existing revenue streams, while actively exploring new diversified funding sources to ensure the future viability of the organization. Innovate the trade show to attract a broader audience and/or increase value for participants. Explore potential expansion of membership into new categories. - Membership satisfaction. Engage with members to ensure that HPBA is maximizing member value and evaluate the membership structure to ensure it is meeting the needs of all members. Increase participation from members who are not as engaged and create initiatives to improve membership retention. Be able to clearly articulate the member value proposition to retain existing members and attract new members; serve as a spokesperson for the association and the industry. - Government relations. Bring together different membership segments, creating a strong collective industry voice in the development of sound regulations. Monitor issues, ensuring that the government affairs team is responsive and supportive of work in North America, including at the affiliate level. - Affiliate relationships. Ensure that affiliate relationships are properly structured and managed to the benefit of both the affiliates and the national office, maintaining the affiliates’ ability to be the “heartbeat” of the local markets and ensuring that the service-level/retail businesses are well-served. - Staff leadership. Lead a high-performing team, adding additional staffing and resources where needed. Work with the team to make strategic decisions and carry plans forward. Prioritize key initiatives when resources are limited. Evaluate the organizational structure— including board, staff, programs, and committees—to ensure all systems and processes are productive and value-added.   Qualifications - 10+ years in a leadership role managing all aspects of operations, including communications, finance, education, events, government affairs, human resources, and membership. Experience transforming an organization to ensure long-term growth and sustainability. - Experience working in a highly regulated industry with an understanding of federal, state, and local government relations/government affairs. Experience working in a nonprofit trade association or industry experience in a relatable industry—such as consumer goods, manufacturing, or retail—is preferred. - Experience working in an affiliate or federation structure, or comparable experience such as coalitions or other membership models. - Ability to understand complex scientific concepts related to legal, government affairs, and market research.
