ABOUT NEW FUTURES
New Futures is a dynamic local nonprofit with a unique approach to fighting inequity: we believe fiercely that shorter-term credentials – associate degrees or professional certifications – are an effective launch point toward rewarding, fulfilling careers. One of the only college success organizations supporting systematically excluded young people on this so-called non-traditional path, New Futures invests in our Scholars with a deliberate combination of scholarships, academic and career advising, access to transformative professional networks, and a lot of heart as they jumpstart careers they love in high-growth fields that lead to financial security and more equitable futures for all.
New Futures was founded in 1999 as a scholarship organization, but we’re so much more than that now, and we’ve evolved significantly since 2016 as a leader in college persistence and workforce development. Having strengthened our approach so rapidly, with new programming and growing numbers of both Scholars and staff, we need YOU to help us build our capacity, expand our impact, and sustain our growth!
As the Assistant Director of People, Culture, and Operations, a new position for the organization, you’ll be the key person to ensure that New Futures lives its mission and commitment to equity by ensuring strong organizational culture, systems, structures, and processes. This is a brand new, full-time role reporting to the Executive Director, and working with all of our employees as well as our accountant and other external partners.
You’ll have the opportunity to bring a strategic eye to human capital and operations. You will ensure that the day-to-day, hands-on HR and operations needs of the organization are met. Like all staff of small nonprofits, you will need to be nimble and eager to tackle new questions and challenges as they arise! Looking back on your time with our team, you’ll be most proud that you used your DEI acumen, organizational awareness, and problem-solving skills to make New Futures an exemplary place to work for every employee, resulting in our desired deepening and expansion of our impact.
