Latino Network’s mission is to provide transformative opportunities, services and advocacy for the education, leadership and civic engagement of our youth, families, and communities. Our work springs from the core belief in Latino community self-determination—that is, the ability of community members to participate meaningfully in the decisions that affect their lives and the lives of their families. We build and manage collaborative and energetic teams to implement high quality, culturally inclusive programs. We actively partner across a variety of city, county, state and community organizations to deliver training and support, a wide range of services, as well as influence policy.
The Successful Families 2020 Program Lead works as a part of a collaborative and energetic team to implement a high quality, culturally inclusive family and youth engagement program. Latino Network seeks a bilingual, bi-cultural mission-driven professional with proven nonprofit and community experience to lead a full range of activities for a growing organization. Key prior experience includes; coordinating services with other agency partners to provide high quality services to families, building relationships with school staff and administrators, building relationships with students and families. This is a roll-up-your-sleeves position with the capacity to impact and promote the organization’s vision and mission.
The position is part of the Successful Families 2020 initiative, which is comprised of six of Multnomah County's leading non profit organizations serving low-income and culturally specific communities. Working in collaboration with United Way, this collaborative is creating a blueprint for success in communities of color in Multnomah County. Successful Families 2020 defines itself as a community by its geography, demography, and cultural and social ties serving communities of color, African American, Latino, Native American, Asian and refugee and immigrant families in Multnomah County. Partners share the commitment to break the cycle of childhood poverty and improve educational outcomes. To better align efforts and achieve system change, we believe four new infrastructure systems must be created: 1) a repaired safety net, 2) an integrated pipeline for student success, 3) the ways and means to family economic success, and 4) the rich social fabric of a connected community.
In support of these goals, the Successful Families 2020 Program Lead will work to ensure that collaborative partners based at Mill Park Elementary School are creating and communicating a unified SF2020 identity to school leadership, staff, youth, and families. The Program Lead is empowered to provide the anchor role for the program team within the school, clarifying expectations, aligning and helping ensure collaborative work towards common goals. In return, the partners' program team staff at the school will support and reinforce SF2020 vision and goals through the collaborative work.
Latino Network is a fast-paced, highly engaged work environment with satellite operations within Multnomah County. We strive to communicate effectively and respectfully within the context of varying beliefs, behaviors, orientations, identities and cultural backgrounds. We actively seek opportunities for professional development for our staff and promote a willingness to change for continual improvement.
Latino Network provides a generous benefits package that includes 15 days of paid vacation, 12 days of paid sick leave, 10 paid holidays, employer-paid health coverage, 401K, and Life Insurance.
