The direct impact of this volunteer role is huge - you will help underrepresented young entrepreneurs launch businesses by using our proven Launch4 method. You’ll receive training in our lean-bootstrapping methodology as well as training and practice in inclusive mentoring.

About Skysthelimit.org

At Skysthelimit.org (STL), we’re a highly-ambitious tech nonprofit. There aren’t too many like us - we combine the pace, feel, and Lean Startup approach of a tech startup with the business model of a mission-driven nonprofit. Our mission is to empower underrepresented young adult entrepreneurs to achieve their own goals for their businesses - resulting in new companies, new jobs, and new products & services that strengthen our local economies across the nation and eventually the globe. And the key to our work is developing our entrepreneurs’ social capital through meaningful, one-on-one support.

We have a diverse community of young entrepreneurs: 99% ages 18 to 29, 95% across the US in over 40 states, 70% female, 80% people of color, and the majority are low-income when they join our program. They are building businesses across many industries: clothing, food, beauty, the trades, and a large variety of services businesses. We primarily help our entrepreneurs build tech-enabled small businesses, although we do have freelancers and some high growth startups too.

We’re backed by Accenture (NYSE: ACN) through a multi-million, multi-year grant to build & operate our own mentoring platform & program for underserved young entrepreneurs, while also whitelabeling our platform for other organizations who support entrepreneurs. We’ve got a completely remote team of 15 developers and five on the fundraising, marketing, and program teams across three states and three countries. Our board of directors includes:

Rick Wade, VP of Strategic Alliances at US Chamber of Commerce

Desired Skills, Mindset, and Experience:

A strong belief in our mission to help all entrepreneurs, regardless of where they were born or the circumstances they were born into, achieve their business dreams.

A “connector” mindset - we don’t expect you to have all the answers but we are looking for people who can help point a young entrepreneur to the right people and resources to achieve their goals.

Experience starting and managing a business is a plus (particularly a small business) but not a requirement. Anyone with expertise in an area related to business (e.g., law, finance, project management, marketing, sales) or education or mentoring adults is encouraged to apply!

A desire to work with diverse entrepreneurs from a variety of backgrounds.

Comfort with online or remote communication (e.g., written communications, phone, video chat, etc.)

Passionate about building relationships and seeing young entrepreneurs thrive

A desire to change two lives — a young entrepreneur’s and your own!

The Opportunity. The Director of Volunteer Programs reports to the Vice President, Community Impact and will lead The Trustees’ efforts to carry out an inclusive and essential effort to engage volunteers in the care, conservation, and creation of the Commonwealth’s special places and sustainable communities. Volunteerism has been a cornerstone of The Trustees’ successful 128-year history in conserving special places. With the implementation of our new strategic plan, Momentum, we are thrilled to embark upon a bold and ambitious transformation of our existing volunteer programs. The Director of Volunteer Programs will lead and continually improve this critical transition for The Trustees. The scale and impact of these changes and investments exceed typical incrementalism. Currently, The Trustees enlist over 1,500 volunteers who contribute ~ 60,000 hours of work annually. We believe that a driven and dynamic leader will harness new investments to almost double volunteer & intern engagement to over 100,000 hours by the end of the current strategic plan, Momentum. This role requires subject matter expertise and you must have 4+ years of volunteer management experience to be considered a competitive candidate. The job. The Director of Volunteer Programs is one of three new volunteer management positions at The Trustees.
