Job Opportunity – Vice President (Achieve Palm Beach County)

Achieve Palm Beach County is a collective impact initiative including a broad group of over 170 community leaders from more than 40 partner organizations representing various sectors (e.g., the public school district, local government, nonprofit providers, funders, corporations, and civic and business organizations) focused on improving post-secondary education access and completion for Palm Beach County Students. 

With a strategic plan that serves as a blueprint for the work moving forward, the Achieve PBC partners have defined their vision - that every Palm Beach County high school graduate completes a post-secondary credential within six-years of high school graduation that prepares them for a meaningful career with a sustainable wage.  Further, they’ve defined their mission - as collectively ensuring an integrated and effective system of supports from middle school through post-secondary that empowers students for career success.

The initial focus of work for the partners is on 1) parent engagement and support, 2) post-secondary advising for high school students, 3) FAFSA completion, and 4) scholarships, non-financial, and other supports for post-secondary students.

Through funding from numerous organizations and foundations, Achieve PBC is now ready to hire an executive leader to oversee implementation of this work. 

This position is hosted at the United Way of Palm Beach County, and a position description is attached.

To submit an application for this position, please send resume, cover letter, and salary requirements to:

The deadline for applications is March 24, 2017.

Greetings from the two cradle to career collective impact efforts happening in the St. Louis region!

In a short time, we have learned that developing a master plan for collective action is a tremendous undertaking. Fortunately, there are various resources and completed plans to help guide us. Unfortunately, we are not finding many resources on how plans get implemented. For communities that have moved from planning to implementation, we need your help!

We have an array of questions about implementation – how it works, staffing structures, is impact happening and more. We are hungry for resources, such as “tips for overcoming turnover.”

How to Help:

  • Agree to be interviewed.
  • Upload resources.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.
