Finance & Grant Manager

 Youth on Record is a fast growing nonprofit organization with an operating budget of $2.3M. With over 500 sources of revenue (35% of which is earned,) including $850,000 from 20+ foundation grants, and projections to grow our team from 18 FTE employees to 40 in three years, YOR’s financial position is strong, diversified, and primed to grow leaps and bounds.

Ok – let’s face it – if you glossed over (or were confused by) the above statement, it’s best to check our employment page for other opportunities. But – if you LOVED reading the above, and began imagining yourself as a part of a team that tells YOR’s story by reconciling monthly financials, preparing financial reports for various stakeholders, and ensuring that YOR is financially compliant and transparent to funders and constituents alike, then this position is for you. Do you have a degree in finance, and experience with grant compliance and budget reporting? Even better! Do you soon want to be a CFO for a mission-based organization in music and entertainment? Yes?! Ok – what are you waiting for – apply already!

As the newest member of YOR’s finance team, we’ll be looking to you to help tell the financial story of YOR, and build systems for our growing organization. This is a new position – so this means you’ll be helping to build this job, in partnership with the Executive Director. This means we’ll need you to be daily comfortable with some level of creative problem solving and ambiguity. 

The Finance & Grant Manager supports essential accounting functions related to accounts payable and accounts receivable, monthly financial statements, contractor financial management, and grant management and compliance. This position will be supported by YOR’s contracted bookkeeper and will work with an audit firm for our FY 22/23 Audit, as well as our grant writing partner, Point b(e) Strategies.

Additionally, this position will work closely with the Executive Director and Deputy Director on projecting budgets and financial strategic planning. 

This is a full-time exempt position reporting directly to the Director of Business & Culture.

Director of Academic Success

YOR’s education, music, and community programs are designed to help young people become more free, more rooted in their personal power, and better able to thrive in spite of systems and circumstances that dis-empower and marginalize them.

YOR is at the intersections of working in the public schools while maintaining teaching autonomy over our pedagogy, evaluations, and teaching frameworks. We recognize that education alone can not solve for systemic injustice, nor can it alone liberate youth. Art is a powerful tool, but it also cannot bear the sole responsibility for creating more equitable communities. Still, education and art, when integrated under the right framework, are powerful tools toward liberation and equity.  

If you’re reading this and saying to yourself, “Yes. Yes! Yes!!!!!,” you’re probably our people. If your public education experience has led you to want to build new and innovative practices for reaching and teaching young people, Youth on Record may well be your next career path. 

We’re looking for a Director with significant experience in public education, who also has a special affinity for arts education, and wants to advance their career at an innovative creative youth development organization. If you’re someone who is a leader of self and in community, a self-generating project manager, a coach at heart (and maybe in practice), and a lover of music, we want to hear from you

This is a full-time exempt position reporting to the Deputy Director Department: Creative Youth Development & Success (CYDS).
