Job Posting and an opportunity to highlight an outstanding young Minnesotan

The National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy, which is one of my favorite organizations because they promote philanthropy that serves the public good and helps keep foundation's feet to the fire when it comes to accountability and transparancy, is hiring. This Washington, DC-based organization is looking for a field associate to plan and support programmatic work and field outreach of the nation’s premier philanthropic watchdog organization. The person in this position will be responsible for coordinating membership services, and support the field department in national partnerships, collaboratives and other special initiatives.

A friend of mine from the Jaycees is looking for nominations for outstanding young Minnesotans ages 18-40 who deserve recognition for their leadership in the community. The Ten Outstanding Young Minnesotans (TOYM) program is Minnesota’s only statewide recognition program for outstanding young leaders. The program acknowledges the efforts of young leaders that have contributed to our state through their service, thought/influence, community involvement, or entrepreneurship. To submit a nominee go to: The deadline for submitting a nominee is this Friday, September 26th, 2008.

It's great to see such a longstanding organization in the community recognize and nurture young leadership.
