Circle de Luz seeks its first executive director. Join our team committed to empowering a generation of resilient and confident Latinas who actively work to create a better community for all. Be part of an established Charlotte-based nonprofit with a strong reputation and a proven track record.
ABOUT CIRCLE DE LUZ
Circle de Luz is a Charlotte-based non-profit that radically empowers young Latinas by supporting their transformation through extensive mentoring, holistic programming and scholarship funds for further education. Each year we select a new class of six to eight Latinas in seventh grade and then support them through high school graduation. During those six years, we provide our members and their families with dynamic program experiences inspired by the three core themes of our developmental
model: Academic Support and College Readiness, Personal Development, and Community Awareness & Engagement. Our goal is to empower our members to be more confident and resilient while realizing they can create futures of their choosing. Upon graduation, each of our program participants (whom we call hijas) receives a $5,000 scholarship to support their plans for further education.
Founded in 2008, Circle de Luz is committed to providing the highest quality program and the best possible outcomes for our members, their families, and our community while growing our impact across the city. We are a small but mighty organization with a staff of three and an annual budget of approximately $240,000. Several members of the Board of Directors are founders and all play an active role in the organization.
ABOUT THE POSITION
Circle de Luz is seeking our first executive director. Until now, the Executive Committee has held the strategic vision and managed the staff team. The organization has grown to the point where it needs full-time, consistent, and inspirational leadership and management. The Executive Director will guide Circle’s staff, volunteers, partners, and our members and families as we live our mission, vision, and values.
