Do you have project management experience and a passion for education? You might consider becoming a Lead Partner! We’re currently looking for expressions of interest to serve as a Lead Partner with Sound Discipline, a fourth-year investee organization. Sound Discipline entered the investee portfolio in the spring of 2015 and they have about 12 months left in the capacity building relationship with SVP. As a long-tenured investee with SVP Sound Discipline knows the capacity building ropes, and this short term engagement promises to be a fulfilling experience!
Lead Partners are the primary liaisons between SVP and our investees, managing volunteer projects and advocating on their behalf. They typically spending from 4-10 hours a month working with the Executive Director and other Investee staff. Lead Partners generally have strong project management skills, allowing them to optimize capacity building relationships between SVP and the nonprofits we support.
