We are seeking a motivated, strategic and highly skilled Program Manager who will be responsible for overseeing Slow Food USA’s youth work, leading the development of innovative projects and campaigns that move towards good, clean, and fair food practices. The Program Manager also works in collaboration with the program staff to strategize, develop, and implement national grassroots campaigns that engage our network and the broader public to bring about change in the food system. Areas of work include staff supervision, workplan implementation, budget, and alliances.
The Membership Manager is a new position created to develop and grow the Slow Food USA membership in order to achieve these goals, and the Membership Manager will have responsibility for creating a structured and sophisticated annual fund/membership giving program. The position is focused on maximizing membership revenue, though because membership at Slow Food USA sits at the nexus between the development, communications and program departments, the successful applicant will work closely with staff in all three areas to achieve a wide array of goals.
Programs Manager, Slow Food in Schools
Slow Food In Schools is a national network of local (community-based) projects that address issues related to the food system within K-12 public education institutions. These projects range from school gardens, cooking classes and curriculum development, to advocacy for improving federally funded school meals. We are seeking a motivated, strategic and highly skilled Program Manager who will lead strategies to support the current projects, help build new projects, and ensure that the collective work is improving the conditions for students, teachers, and parents, particularly in the communities most impacted by a broken food system.
