The Director of Haverhill Promise will lead a community-focused effort to ensure that all of Haverhill students are reading proficiently by the end of third grade. This is a unique opportunity to sharpen the initiative's vision and deepen its impact by working collaboratively and strategically with partners throughout the city around a common goal.
Haverhill Promise is seeking a Director to develop, lead, maintain, and grow relationships with an ever-growing network of community partners participating in the three areas of focus (School Readiness, School Attendance, and Summer Learning). The Director will have strong leadership skills and the ability to take a big vision -- to increase literacy skills for Haverhill's young children -- and develop action plans to make progress towards tangible goals.
The Director will develop strong working relationships with each of the partner organizations and understand, value, and help amplify the role they have in moving forward the goals and objectives of Haverhill Promise. A skilled and passionate advocate, the Director will actively leverage partners' activities, ensuring they are mutually reinforcing while identifying opportunities for organizations to work together on key initiatives.
Additionally, the Director will convene working groups and other committees, serving as a bridge to enhance communication and connectivity between and among the various partner organizations, and throughout the broader Haverhill community. The Director will track and manage the work of partners as it relates to the collective work plan and develop tools and mechanisms for reporting and sharing progress of the collective effort.
Using an equitable and inclusive approach, the Director will engage communities throughout the city to demonstrate the power of self-directed reading and how it can be a pathway to success and opportunity that shapes the future for all children in Haverhill.
