This is done through professional planning initiatives, the provision of objective information, and community involvement in collaborative partnerships.
The Atlanta Regional Commission is a nationally recognized leader in regional planning and collaboration that creates real community change. The ARC's flagship leadership development programs (LINK, Regional Leadership Institute, Arts Leaders of Metro Atlanta, and Model Atlanta Regional Commission) are well-known nationally and serve to engage and mobilize leaders from high school to seasoned professionals to build a more substantial region through committed action. ARC's Alumni Engagement Network seeks to bring continuity and on-going regional engagement to these leaders beyond their leadership program/cohort participation.
The Program Analyst within the Community Development Group's Leadership Programs Section is part of a dynamic, multidisciplinary team of professionals managing the leadership programs mentioned above (LINK, RLI, MARC, and the Alumni Engagement Strategy). This team's work is to provide meaningful opportunities for leaders to grow in their understanding of regional issues and personal leadership skills. This position is responsible for delivering critical logistical and programmatic support to the LINK program, the Regional Leadership Institute, and the Alumni Engagement Network, all engaging mid-to high-level community leaders in the region. This position will also co-manage the Model Atlanta Regional Commission (MARC) program. One of the top regional youth leadership programs in the country, MARC challenges high school students to learn about shaping metro Atlanta, focusing on how they can positively impact the future of the region.
The ideal candidate will be a professional with skills and experience applicable to communications, event/program planning, leadership development programming, and community engagement. This individual will help plan and implement program logistics and prepare communication pieces, with a desire to support a variety of leadership programs and the regional planning and service provision work that comprises the work program of the ARC.
