Youth Villages is looking for a Strategy Project Manager in Memphis.
Youth Villages is a non-profit that I hold in high regard. The organization, founded in Memphis, Tennessee in 1986, measures its success in reunited families and in children who are able to live at home and do well in school. Since 1994, when Youth Villages began an emphasis on helping children in the least restrictive environment — preferably in their own homes — success rates have soared: in 2009, 88 percent of the children who received at least 60 days of service at Youth Villages were discharged successfully and 83 percent of them were still living successfully in the community two years after their discharge. Youth Villages’ success rate is extraordinary when compared with a 60 percent failure rate for traditional child welfare services.
The Strategy Project Manager will also work closely with Youth Villages’ officers and directors with a focus on supporting the organization’s growth. Based in the Youth Villages’ Memphis headquarters, s/he will support facilitation of strategic planning processes (national and state levels) and identify and analyze potential growth opportunities.
This is an extraordinary opportunity for a mission- and results- driven management consultant to have significant and national-scale impact on disadvantaged youth.
