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 our newest multi-year investee, United Indians of All Tribes Foundation (UIATF).
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. Check out this Q&A with Rich Gary, a former Lead Partner with Transportation Choices Coalition to get a better sense of the role.
Growing out of the social activism around Native and Indigenous rights in the 1970s, United Indians of All Tribes Foundation is a multi-service agency that provides educational, cultural and social services that reconnect Indigenous people in the Puget Sound region to their heritage by strengthening their sense of belonging and significance as Native people. UIATF offers a suite of culturally responsive programs to families raising young Indigenous children, including full-day preschool, in-home parent/caregiver coaching, family learning circles; and three new culturally responsive early childhood programs that will launch in 2019-2020. We could not be more excited to work with UIATF in the coming years!
