Posted 5 December 2014: Program Officer, National Education Strategy, Raikes Foundation

Location: Seattle, Washington

The Opportunity
The Raikes Foundation seeks a strategic and versatile professional with deep knowledge of the K-12 education landscape to serve as a Program Officer for its national education grantmaking strategy. The national education strategy is focused on helping students develop positive academic mindsets and effective learning strategies. The Program Officer will join the Foundation as it seeks to expand its impact in public education.

Exploring a variety of means such as professional development, online courses, program curricula and assessment, the Program Officer will be instrumental in structuring grants to test how academic mindsets and learning strategies could be embedded across a range of channels. The Program Officer will play a role in crafting grant opportunities that are intended to communicate the power and importance of academic mindsets and learning strategies while also coalescing the field of players who share an interest in this domain.

The program officer will work closely with the Education Strategy Lead and will report to the Foundation’s Director. The ideal candidate has grantmaking experience or a consulting background that demonstrates an aptitude for framing strategic choices, assessing options and crafting strategic implementation plans. A background developing education-focused strategies, ideally at a multi-state or national level, will be key to this position. Early career experience as an educator and subsequent professional roles that provide a more expansive “systems level” perspective is optimal.

To learn more, please see the full position profile here.

About the Organization

The Raikes Foundation is a private family foundation based in Seattle. It was founded by Tricia and Jeff Raikes, who are both actively involved in the Foundation’s work. With a staff team of eight people, the Raikes Foundation expects to grow as its annual grantmaking capacity expands. It will distribute roughly $9 million in 2014, and expects annual grantmaking to more than double over the next 10 years.

The mission of the Raikes Foundation is to empower young people to transform their lives. The Foundation’s three core grantmaking strategies include:

  • A regional strategy focused on ending youth and young adult homelessness in King County
  • A statewide strategy focused on improving the quality of after-school programs across Washington state
  • A national education strategy

To date, the Foundation’s national education strategy grantmaking portfolio has focused on basic and applied research on academic mindsets and learning strategies. Moving forward, the Foundation will invest more heavily in exploring pathways to “translate” basic and applied research into tools and resources that teachers and other education stakeholders can readily use with students. This includes identifying the institutions, networks and collaboratives that are already working across the K-12 system and partnering with them to integrate tools focused on academic mindsets and learning strategies.

Minimum Qualifications

Seven to ten years of professional experience in a foundation, management, policy or consulting practice serving the education field. Prior direct experience (2 to 5+ years) in a school, district or charter management organization is an asset. A bachelor’s degree is required; a master’s degree is preferred.

The position is based in Seattle, WA, but may include up to 25 percent of time on domestic travel.

To Be Considered
Please submit your resume and cover letter online at http://candidates.waldronhr.com. Cover letters expressing your passion for the mission and fit for the role should be addressed to Melissa Merritt.

…PRESIDENT

  Arts Consulting Group seeks candidate recommendations for the position of President of the Los Angeles Master Chorale in Los Angeles, California.

The Grammy-nominated Los Angeles Master Chorale (LAMC) is in its 51st season as a resident company of The Music Center of Los Angeles County and its 12th season as the resident chorus at Walt Disney Concert Hall. In its own concert series, LAMC performs choral music from the earliest writings to the most recent contemporary compositions. LAMC serves more than 30,000 audience members of all ages annually and provides educational outreach to some 6,000 students each year.

To date, LAMC has commissioned 45 and premiered 92 new works, of which 62 were world premieres. It is the recipient of three ASCAP/Chorus America Awards for Adventurous Programming, as well as Chorus America’s prestigious Margaret Hillis Award for Choral Excellence. LAMC has performed more than 300 concerts with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at Disney Hall and the Hollywood Bowl. It has also appeared at the Ojai Music Festival, the Great Performers series at New York’s Lincoln Center, Chicago’s Ravinia Festival, and the Overture Center in Madison, Wisconsin.

With a fiscal 2015 operating budget of $4.8 million, LAMC is governed by a 17-member Board of Directors and has a full-time staff of 13. The company is in sound financial condition with net assets of $4.7 million at June 30, 2014 with an endowment invested with the Music Center Foundation valued at $1.4 million.

In May 2014, LAMC announced an extension of Artistic Director Grant Gershon’s contract through the 2019-2020 season. This signals an institutional commitment to an expanded artistic vision that builds on LAMC’s successes, optimizes the impact of the organization’s accomplishments thus far, and ultimately sets a new standard for choral music. Although specific outcomes from this long-term vision will be determined through a forthcoming strategic planning process, LAMC is likely to pursue it through enhancing the concert experience, performing in additional new venues, intensifying its focus on recording and other media, and undertaking special projects and artistic initiatives.
