Program Director for Latin America and the Caribbean
Prosperity Catalyst (PCAT) is a non-profit (501©3) organization whose mission is to inspire, educate and support women entrepreneurs in places of conflict and natural disaster around the world. We seek to contribute to a global awakening in which women are recognized and valued as vital, empowered participants in creating the foundation for peaceful and prosperous societies. Prosperity Catalyst accomplishes this by empowering women as entrepreneurs, facilitating business and entrepreneurship education, and assisting women-owned enterprises in their initial creation and launch.
In the spring of 2013 Prosperity Catalyst launched its work in Haiti by supporting women apprentice entrepreneurs in the creation of a candle-making business, Fanm Limye. Since that time we have established Fanm Limye as a women-led social enterprise, focused on candle production, marketing, and sales both for local and international markets. In addition, we are currently building out our Haiti program to include a network of thirty-one businesses that employ women along the candle-making supply chain (beekeepers, artisans, street vendors, and recyclers).
Therefore we are now seeking to fill a newly created position: Program Director for Latin America and the Caribbean. The Program Director will be responsible for overseeing our current work in Haiti, as well as leading our efforts to expand our work into new areas in the region. The Program Director will play a vital role in managing the Haiti program’s field team, overseeing all program operations, managing the program and business finances, and leading all grant-related activities. The Program Director will also be responsible for working with our executive team to determine an expansion strategy into other areas within Latin America and the Caribbean and will lead all efforts related to establishing new women-led businesses in these areas under the Prosperity Catalyst program model. The position will be supported by a Haiti Program Director, and will report directly to the Executive Director.
The role will be based in Cambridge, MA, though remote working in Washington DC could be possible for the right candidate. The start date is Dec 1st and the salary is $65,000 plus benefits.
