Manager of Expansion Markets

The Manager of Expansion Markets will work closely with the leadership team at Girls in the Game to provide oversight to our programs and stewardship of supporters in Bloomington, Baltimore and Dallas. This includes direct supervision of part-time staff in each market as well as oversight of the Auxiliary Boards in each city. Currently Dallas has an Auxiliary Board with a few members, although we are looking to expand the size and there are plans for Auxiliary Boards in Baltimore and Bloomington to start up soon. The Manager of Expansion Markets will play a key role in getting those Boards up and running. This position works closely with programs and development staff and requires the Expansion Manager to have familiarity with both program design and best practices, as well as our development efforts. This position requires regular travel (2-3 times per year to each market) to our expansion cities. The ideal candidate will be a self-starter who is passionate about spreading Girls in the Game’s mission to more girls in more places.

The Manager of Expansion Markets will serve as the main contact for three University Coordinators responsible for overseeing Girls in the Game programming with volunteer university-based and teen coaches at community sites in and around Dallas, Baltimore and Bloomington. This position will also oversee a new part-time staff member in Baltimore. S/he will also be responsible for regular communication with partner universities and with managing university partner relationships, and outreach to university-based volunteer and intern coaches. In addition, the Manager of Expansion Markets will serve as the main point of contact with funders in each market, serving as a liaison between funders in each market and the development team.
