***  From Jennifer Doheny:

I work for the Patrons Program, a non-profit in NYC. We have several
openings for recent college graduates to serve as the
Development/Marketing Director of an inner-city schools. Could you
please post this position with the JOTW network?
Patrons Program – Introduction
The Patrons Program, a New York City not-for-profit organization, is
recruiting recent college graduates to serve as Development/Marketing
Directors and right hand people to their principals.  Directors get
involved in all aspects of school life. 
The Patrons Program recruits individuals who make significant
contributions and donate their time to needy inner-city Catholic
elementary schools.  Patrons are paired with a school and are encouraged
to become active members of its school's Advisory Board.  Together the
Patrons Program staff, Patrons, Advisory Boards and the school's
administrators work to improve any or all aspects of the school – from
finances to academics to the physical facilities. Efficient tuition
management, museum programs and architecturally designed playgrounds are
just some of the results.  The Patrons Program is also able to leverage
the Patrons' involvement to attract further school support from
foundations and private sources. Last year, the Patrons Program raised
$8 million and directly impacted more than 12,000 students.
The Patrons Program is currently accepting resumes/cover letters for the
Director position. The position will begin in September 2007.

61.)  Development/Marketing Directors, Patrons Program, NY, NY
Directors at individual Patrons Program schools generally serve as
Development/Marketing Directors and right hand people to their
Principals. (Typically our schools have only a Principal and an
assistant at the helm.)  They provide great help to their Principals
because Directors lead important projects and initiatives that the
former are too busy to attempt.  Characteristically self-starters,
Directors tend to work independently of a Principal's direct guidance
and get involved in almost every part of the school.
Their responsibilities include:
.   Development
o   Writing grants
o   Planning and executing events
o   Creating and managing an annual appeal
o   Spearheading capital improvement projects such as a new playground or
o   Launching new programs
o   Creating thank you projects with the children for donors
o   Writing the school's bi-annual newsletter
.   Marketing
o   Implementing campaigns to increase enrollment
o   Creating flyers, brochures and other marketing materials
o   Organizing open houses for prospective parents
o   Reaching out to and building relationship with community-based
organizations, day care centers and local businesses
.   Patrons and School Advisory Board Management
o   Communicating with Patron and Advisory Board members
o   Leading Patron and Advisory Board-led projects
o   Organizing Advisory Board meetings
.   Other
o   Serving as right hand to the Principal
o   Organize programs at the school
o   Working directly with the children by teaching an after school class
o   Assisting the Principal with scholarship applications
In a typical week, a Director may lead a tour of the school for a new
Advisory Board member, create a grant for a 7th and 8th grade calculator
program in which he/she would lead the training efforts, speak with an
architect regarding the new library, and work with the principal on a
Middle States accreditation proposal.
While Directors work full-time in their respective schools, they spend
time in the Patrons Program office working with its staff on various
fundraising initiatives such as grants, newsletters, events, and card
Directors attend a three-day training session held the week before Labor
Day.  This program provides an intensive introduction to working in
inner city schools, school financial management, fundraising, managing
an Advisory Board, and marketing.  It also gives them the chance to
build relationships with the Patrons Program staff and the people who
will be serving similar roles at other schools.
The Patrons Program also arranges get-togethers every two months so that
Directors can share ideas and thoughts about their schools.  Directors
are well supported by the Patrons Program team that works to ensure that
the schools and Directors achieve their desired goals.
Desired Skill Set
.        Passion for education and children
.        Prior work experience in:
.        The not-for-profit sector 
.        Managing independent projects from beginning to end
.        Strong written and oral communication skills
.        Ability to work with a wide variety of people
.        Ability to juggle many projects at once
.        Quick study
.        Proactive
.        Ability to take direction and execute against it
.        Creativity and resourcefulness
The Patrons Program asks Directors to consider making two-year
commitments.  We have found that they achieve greater results in their
second year because they have established strong relationships and can
complete various initiatives that take more than one year.
Education/Experience Required: Bachelor's Degree and 0-3 years
Compensation:  $32,000 plus benefits
The position begins in September 2007.
