Description
What We’re Building & Your Role
With support from committed new investors, New Sector is enthusiastically entering the mental health & wellness space. We plan to join the movement to address the extensive unmet mental health & wellness needs within the nonprofit workforce & our society at large. As a first step, we will design & offer a hybrid (in-person & virtual) fellowship program to support nonprofit frontline leaders serving vulnerable or historically marginalized communities. The program will provide a 6-9 month experience for a cohort of 12 participants. The program will be designed to have a high-touch impact on individual pilot program participants while simultaneously (&/or later) leveraging technology & other resources to have a large-scale impact on a much broader population.
The program content will be partly based on a New Sector project called Designing Your Success, first piloted in 2019 in collaboration with Stanford d.school & Accenture. Modeled after the popular Stanford d.school course series Designing Your Life, DYS is a ten-module series based on research-based pedagogy & design thinking curricula that empowers people to navigate the future of work in sustainable ways. It is delivered by New Sector over several months in sessions of 60-90 minutes each.
This program is currently grant-funded with plans to renew for up to five years, to include several cohorts & the opportunity to refine program/product offerings & educational modules over time. We are seeking a c&idate who is able to jump in confidently, committed to improving alongside the team, & eager to bring new ideas & critical thinking to the table.
