Kellogg Foundation, a leading philanthropic institution helping communities create the conditions children need to thrive, is seeking nominations and applications for Program Officer for Early Childhood Education. In recent years, the foundation has sharpened its focus on improving conditions for vulnerable children, concentrating on three key factors of success and their intersections: education and learning; food, health and well-being; and family economic security. WKKF partners closely with stakeholders and policy makers to co-create a network of organizations working together to advance racial equity, leadership, and community engagement, while increasing access to quality education, healthy food, and economic stability for children and families in need.

    The new Program Officer will identify and nurture opportunities for affecting positive change within educational systems and execute programming efforts that ensure that all young children have access to high quality and equitable education. S/he will screen and recommend grants for funding, prepare funding documents, conduct site visits, and manage and monitor the grant portfolio. The Program Officer will also maintain strong, authentic relationships with grant seekers and grantees and act as a spokesperson for the W.K.

    Responsibilities

    The ideal candidate will have comprehensive knowledge of the learning experiences of all young children from birth through eight years who live and learn in underserved communities.

The successful candidate will also be a holistic thinker who understands how to leverage relationships to drive the foundation’s mission forward. S/he will understand how to motivate social change not only as a partner with disparate organizations but also as a connector whose portfolio engages all areas of educational advocacy.

    The successful candidate will have a deep and comprehensive understanding of program execution and development. S/he will possess a strong team orientation, a high tolerance for ambiguity, the ability to adapt quickly to change, and success working effectively with persons from diverse cultural, social, and ethnic backgrounds.
