For the hyperlocal-leadership type: Take over outgoing ED Kevin Moran’s job at Fairmount Community Development Corporation.

For the technologists: The Free Library of Philadelphia Foundation needs a virtual reality program coordinator, which sounds like just about the coolest nonprofit job we can think of. It’s a one-year, part-time position, but would be perfect for someone who’s “a gaming nerd who loves to play with the latest technology” and is “interested in working with the public to create amazing programs addressing social issues and the future of educational technology.” Learn more here.
