Operations Plan, College Access Now

College Access Now (CAN) is looking for a skilled volunteer to work with the organization’s leadership to develop an operational management plan, (i.e. human resources, finance, business operations, IT, etc.). The overall goal for the project is that College Access Now will be positioned to achieve their ambitious goals for scaling their programs and staff, and pursuing the organization’s strategic direction. The project has three primary components:

  1. Work with CAN’s leadership team to assess operational and resource needs
  2. Develop a responsive overall operational management plan informed by existing models and/or best practices
  3. Provide guidance on steps/phasing for the new operations plan as well as identification of resources needed to implement the operational management model

Examples of work to be performed include:

  • Meet with CAN’s Executive Director, present Director of Operations, and key Board members  to review and analyze existing approaches to CAN’s various operational streams
  • Review documented CAN job descriptions and operational policies
  • Select models of operational set-up in non-profits of a similar size to CAN and review and analyze them for potential fit for CAN
  • Compose a up to three scenarios of operations models and recommend the way forward best suited for CAN’s purposes
  • Create a timeline for implementation of the new model
  • Create a narrative report explaining recommendations and proposed changes.
