PURPOSE OF POSITION:

To be project manager for the program MEER ED Improvement Program funded by WVUS whose goals is to increase the economic capacity of parents and caregivers to provide well for their children in target communities. The Outcomes of the program are
#1 WV staff in MEER have improved knowledge, understanding and experience with best practice ED programs/approaches
#2 WVUS ADP's have improved economic development programs
The project manager will have a primary responsibility for Outcome #1, but also a secondary responsibility for supporting and facilitating Outcome #2 (that is the primary responsibility of each participating NO).
Information and capacity building is a critical success factor to improving economic development programs in the region. Whilst NOs have been active to increase the ED programming in their ADPs, there is a strong need to supplement their own efforts with a coordinated approach to building capacity in ED through specialist training and assistance. The ED Improvement Program provides the opportunity to implement ED programs with the support required whilst capturing the knowledge and learning acquired during the process for further leverage.
This initiative will support WV staff in MEER, to gain the information, tools, resources and support they require to improve economic development programming and ensure parents and caregivers have sufficient income to care for their children. The program that will extend over fiscal years FY12 and FY12 will build a ‘critical mass’ of WV staff who are knowledgeable and experienced in economic development in MEER, and create a strong network between MEER staff that will support quality ED programming in US ADPs well after this two-year investment is complete.
