JOB OPENING – EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

 

The In-Sight Photography Project is a not-for-profit corporation that teaches photography to youth ages 11-18 regardless of their ability to pay. Located in postcard-perfect Southern Vermont, In-Sight empowers youth, through photography and other arts, to find their own creative voices and to communicate their unique visions.  All programming provides artistic tools for aesthetic and personal exploration, while building self-confidence and critical thinking.

 

Founded twenty-five years ago by photographers John Willis and Bill Ledger, In-Sight Photography Project offers after-school photography courses at the introductory, intermediate and advanced levels for students ages 11 to 18, and has served over 3,500 participants. In-Sight also offers cross-cultural educational opportunities through the Exposures program. Since 2003 Exposures has brought together youth from locations including the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, southern Vermont, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, New York City, and the Navajo Nation in Arizona in the host community of Pine Ridge.

 

The Executive Director is the public face of In-Sight. The person in this position leads the In-Sight staff and supports the In-Sight Board in achieving the organization’s mission. With the Executive Board, the Executive Director establishes annual goals and objectives for the organization and monitors progress toward those goals. 

 

Key responsibilities include:

  • External relations, promotion and public relations

·       Fundraising, grant writing, development and donor relations

·       Budget development and financial management

·       Staff leadership and management

·       Board relations

 

As likely expected, fundraising and donor management are critical responsibilities.

Aside from these key responsibilities, we’re looking for someone with knowledge of photography who loves to work with youth.  A demonstrated ability to research and write grants that produce results is a must.

 

Compensation

Salary Range:  $35,500 - $38,500

Benefits Package including vacation and contributions to health and retirement plans.
