December 10, 2014
JOB CLOSING DATE: FRIDAY, DECEMBER 24, 2014 (updated closing date!)
The mission of the Portland African American Leadership Forum (PAALF) is to leverage the power of our community’s combined resources to advance the vision of a connected, thriving, resilient Black Community. PAALF’s work addresses the unique and interrelated issues of poverty and disparities in the areas of housing & economic development, education, and health. This is done while building an intergenerational, inclusive and collaborative Leadership model. In support of this goal, PAALF has established the African American Leadership Academy (AALA), a year-long training cohort program that addresses the personal, cultural, civic and professional needs of emerging Black leaders in Portland and Oregon.
Through the AALA, PAALF works to build a group of transformative Black leaders who hold a lifelong commitment to fighting for racial justice and creating lasting positive change in the Black community.Although there are many training programs available to emerging leaders, PAALF’s African American Leadership Academy (AALA) fills a critical gap by addressing not only the professional skills necessary to achieve success, but the culturally-specific needs of Black people, including racial pride, psychological development, collective consciousness and community building. The African American Leadership Academy builds participants’ capacity to improve the lives of Black people in Portland and throughout the state of Oregon and cultivates a culture of leadership that is rooted in generosity, fellowship, courage and accountability.PAALF has an immediate opening for a Leadership Development Program Manager.
