The Virginia Foundation for Healthy Youth (VFHY) empowers youth to make healthy choices by reducing and preventing youth tobacco use, substance use and obesity. VFHY provides grants to nearly 100 organizations statewide as part of our comprehensive approach to support these efforts. We are seeking a full-time Director of Programs to direct our grants management system and supervise staff.
Qualified applicants will have extensive experience in grants management principles and practices, issuing Requests for Proposals and facilitating review processes, and using technology systems for grant applications and documentation of grant records. Applicants should have a minimum of three years of experience managing staff - experience supervising staff in field offices is a plus. This position also guides program planning to ensure VFHY’s programs and approaches remain relevant; therefore, the ability to assess and evaluate efforts for future planning is essential. Finally, an ideal candidate will have strong presentation and communication skills to help promote the Foundation’s efforts and engage stakeholders and communities across the state to further our reach.
