Organization: Reinvestment Fund

Position Title: Program Director, Early Childhood Education

Position Description:

The Reinvestment Fund is committed to supporting the ECE sector through a growing series of programs work to support the creation and retention of high-quality early education opportunities, particularly for low-income families. During the pandemic we operated multiple relief/recovery programs, but chief among our core programs are:

  • Fund for Quality (FFQ) – Currently operating in Philadelphia, the Fund for Quality is a targeted investment fund that is expanding the availability of quality early childhood education in Philadelphia. It is a partnership between Reinvestment Fund and Public Health Management Corporation (PHMC) with support from the William Penn Foundation and Vanguard Strong Start for Kids ProgramTM. Through business planning support and facilities-related financing, the fund enables high-quality providers to expand their services to reach more low-income families.

  • Early Learning Quality Fund (ELQF) – Currently operating in Washington, D.C., ELQF is capitalized through a program-related investment (PRI) and provides technical assistance services and funding for minor facility improvements. This is a partnership between Reinvestment Fund and PHMC with support from the Bainum Family Foundation.

The expectation is that Reinvestment Fund will continue to grow these core programs as well as take the lead on more specialized programs and initiatives in the future. Reporting directly to the Chief Program Officer, the Program Director will work with internal and external stakeholders to design, develop and implement effective and engaging programs that provide capital and technical assistance to ECE businesses serving low-income families in select communities across the country. The Program Director will join its Capacity-Building and Capital Access Programs team delivering technical assistance, capacity building and grant programs. Reinvestment Fund manages several initiatives with the support of local or national foundations, and state, local and federal public agencies and governments. 

This is an excellent opportunity for a self-motivated individual with both a team approach and systems-oriented thinking skills to help grow, further develop, and implement innovative programs. The Program Director will be expected to work independently and collaboratively with program staff, participants, consultants, vendors, and other stakeholders.
