Youthentity is launching a new Career Academy for high school students designed to help youth explore a variety of careers in an industry they are interested in. Students will work with Youthentity and community professionals helping them to better determine their goals and dreams after high school. The Youthentity Career Academy will provide general employability skills and attitudes training through a new on-line Youthentity University. Students will develop a five-year life plan outlining the steps needed to achieve their career goal while balancing the costs of further education and training, the projected earnings of their selected career(s), and their desired life style so that they do not take on excessive debt while achieving their goal.

  • Achieving program and fundraising results that are aligned with the strategic plan of the organization

  • Learning quickly and thoroughly while continually recognizing and adapting to changing conditions

  • Demonstrating a sense of urgency and confidence to handle a variety of challenges, a full commitment to the success of the organization and high standards of achievement

  • Working with teens daily to help them succeed through this experience

Additional characteristics of the Youthentity Career Enterprise Director Job Position are:

  • Multiple, simultaneous projects in a fast-paced environment

  • Idea generation, innovative and creative problem solving

  • Ability to delegate details as necessary, with follow up on timeliness and quality yet accountable for results

  • Stimulating key audiences to action including youth, parents, educators, volunteers, individual and business donors, and foundations.
