Position: Executive Director, Springfield Urban Agriculture Coalition
Address: P.O. Box 2743 Springfield MO 65801
Founded in 2010, Springfield Urban Agriculture Coalition’s (SUAC) mission promotes healthy lifestyles and environments through hands-on education about the production and consumption of locally-produced, natural foods.
SUAC’s primary focus is the DIRT (Dig in R-Twelve) Project, which provides weekly education in school gardens, focusing on math, science, and health lessons that meet Missouri State Education requirements; additionally, DIRT has a focus on reconnecting children with the food they eat, the soil in which it grows, and the processes of caring for nature. SUAC created this program in 2010 with grant funding from the Missouri Foundation for Health, and currently maintains eight gardens serving nine schools. Of the eight school gardens, five include high-tunnels, providing four-season growing and year-round garden lessons.
Through partnerships with local organizations and business, SUAC provides a garden educator at each school, many of which have volunteered year after year, providing consistency and deepening relationships with staff, teachers, administration, students, and parents.
While SUAC maintains a lean operating budget, SUAC provides education to about 800 children each month. While we’ve accomplished much over the years, many of our successes and goals obtained cannot be measured only on paper -- providing children with the opportunity to pull a carrot from the soil; watching students harvest a salad grown by their peers; teaching students the concepts of ecosystems, plants, life cycles, and the needs of living organisms - this is what keeps us going.
SUAC seeks to utilize 2016 to maintain and strengthen current DIRT partnerships and programming to continue to provide such valuable learnings to children in our community.
Reporting to the Board of Directors, the Executive Director (ED) will have overall strategic and operational responsibility for SUAC’s staff, programs, and execution of its mission. S/he will initially develop deep knowledge of field, core programs, operations, and business plans, and lead fundraising efforts to ensure future program sustainability. The SUAC ED will provide key leadership with innovative ideas and partnership support to promote the importance and grow the capacity for urban agriculture in our food system.
The successful candidate will be thoroughly committed to SUAC’s mission and should have proven leadership experience. This position requires demonstrated success and experience in a related non-profit organization that included staff supervision and budget management responsibilities.
Compensation: $25,000 - 32,000. Full-time.
How to Apply: Send resume with cover letter and 3 references to firstname.lastname@example.org with a subject line of ‘Executive Director Application’. Resumes accepted until position is filled.
