New! Partnership and Development Specialist


A key program in the cooperative agreement is the Program Accelerator. The Program Accelerator is a unique partnership between a project/program team and the resources of the Extension Foundation for a year of rapid growth and progress resulting in expanding the team’s local impact and national potential. Our unique methods and a team of catalysts and key informants work individually with each team to produce scalable, better-resourced, and more effective programs and community-based initiatives through a one-year boost of additional support. This program serves all Land-Grant Universities in the United States.

The Extension Foundation is seeking an individual to work with our Partnership and Development Coordinator to further design and develop new partnerships and funding sources for NTAE Program Accelerator projects.  This position will work closely with NTAE project leaders and their goals to seek additional partnerships (both capacity and funding) for assistance with projects being accelerated.
