The Aspen Leadership Group is proud to partner with the All Stars Project in the search for a Director of People and Culture.
The Director of People and Culture is a leadership role in a fast-paced, growing, and vibrant national organization. The Director will be responsible for directing the overall talent strategy for the All Stars Project (ASP) which includes recruitment, talent development, training, and succession planning. The Director will participate in evolving the current HR capabilities in order to be aligned with the ASP’s refined strategic direction and support the growth needs from a talent angle. The Director will manage all aspects of human resources, including but not limited to talent acquisition, culture and engagement, performance management, rewards, learning and development, and talent-related analytics.
The successful candidate will be creative, highly motivated, and an effective communicator with a specialty in attracting, developing, and retaining talented employees who have a passion for the mission and vision of the ASP. The Director of People and Culture not only holds a leadership role within the ASP, but is outwardly facing to the community, and exhibits the values of the organization every day. Although this role will be based out of the national headquarters in New York, it is national in scope, with leadership and accountability to the national team.
The All Stars Project is a growing national nonprofit organization whose mission is to transform the lives of youth and poor communities using the developmental power of performance, in partnership with caring adults. While the ASP’s afterschool programs include hip-hop talent shows, training in theatre and the arts, and programs that partner with the business community to help young people create a professional performance, it is doing so much more — building communities and imagining possibilities. Founded in 1981, the ASP is headquartered in New York City, currently operates in six cities across the United States (New York City, Newark and Jersey City, New Jersey, San Francisco Bay Area, Chicago, and Dallas), and reaches more than 10,000 young people from poor communities each year. The ASP is 100% privately funded, mostly through individual contributions.
Each year, All Stars Afterschool Development programs involve tens of thousands of inner-city young people and adults from all walks of life in transforming their lives and communities. The ASP believes afterschool is the best way to bring young people growing up in poor communities into the mainstream. They start to connect to opportunities, to the world of success, to the business community, and all sorts of things that are very far from where they come from, sparking their desire to learn and grow.
All Stars Project is committed to fostering, cultivating, and preserving a culture of diversity and inclusion; its human capital is its most valuable asset. The collective sum of the individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, inventiveness, innovation, self-expression that its employees invest in their work represents a significant part of not only the ASP's culture, but its reputation and achievement as well. ASP actively seeks candidates that are willing and able to share their unique capabilities and talents with the organization.
A bachelor's degree is required for this position as is at least seven years of experience leading effective talent recruitment and development programs for organizations. All applications must be accompanied by a cover letter and résumé.
