Executive Director

Executive Director

This fall, a governing board was assembled for the Oakland Promise to develop strategy, support fundraising and lead the hiring and management of a new, stand-alone Executive Director who will oversee day-to-day programmatic operations. The ideal Executive Director candidate will have demonstrated experience with high levels of success in the following areas: fundraising and partnership development; managing a high performing team; political savvy; work with similar students and in analogous communities to those the Oakland Promise serves; knowledge of the Oakland context; leading a successful organization to reach its collective goals. This is an outstanding position for a results-driven leader with a passion for increasing access to education and economic opportunity for all Oakland students to scale the Oakland Promise’s operations and program services, bringing it from an early stage start-up phase to a fully sustainable nonprofit organization.
