We wrote earlier this year about Girls Rock Philly’s very cool shared leadership model. Join this music education nonprofit’s collaborative team as community organizing director if you’re interested in communications, volunteer management and social justice — plus, mentoring the next generation of  rockers. More info here.


You know Philanthropy Network Greater Philadelphia for its annual conference and its work facilitating change-making conversations with funders. The org, led by new-ish ED Sidney Hargro, is seeking a director of leadership and advancement to support its strategic partnerships. Learn more here.


Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, the nonprofit that supports public space beautification (and that little thing called the Philadelphia Flower Show), has two open positions: program curator and project manager. The first will get to develop the engagement strategy for the forthcoming Pew-winning Farm to Table: Growing for Greater Good public art project. If landscape management is more your style, consider the latter role.
