The Aspen Leadership Group is proud to partner with Young People's Chorus of NYC in the search for a Director of Development.

Reporting to the Chief Operating Officer, the Director of Development will partner with the Chief Operating Officer to steward the organization’s mission of artistic excellence and commitment to young people.  A successful candidate will secure funding and help the organization double its operating budget by cultivating new and existing donor relationships, successfully articulating  the organization’s short- and long-range goals, and creating lasting philanthropic relationships.

The Young People’s Chorus of New York City (YPC) is a multicultural youth chorus whose mission and values are deeply rooted in providing children of all cultural and economic backgrounds with a unique program of music education and choral performance. YPC is committed to providing pathways to success through the arts so that each child, no matter what race, gender, socioeconomic background, or religion can reach their full potential.

YPC is recognized worldwide for its award-winning performances and spectacular artistry. Inspired by his childhood experiences, founder Francisco J. Núñez has created a children’s chorus based on diversity, using music as the unifying force to engage and teach its choristers. By founding YPC, Núñez fulfilled his dream of bringing together children from all walks of life to make beautiful music and friendships, creating new opportunities and a brighter future for thousands of YPC children and their communities.

Núñez’s original vision was to teach young people not just to sing, but to strive for musical excellence. As YPC has grown, it has attracted an increasingly diverse group of children from a variety of socio-economic backgrounds. Núñez has championed this idea from personal experience with the belief that by bringing a diverse group of children together not only makes for more exciting music, but also bridges cultural differences and fosters an environment of empathy and understanding.

YPC has performed in venues such as Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center. Internationally, YPC performs in festivals, competitions, and choral summits around the world, leading to the creation of its commissioning program. By collaborating with choruses from as far away as Indonesia, Australia, and Israel, YPC has continued to broaden its reach globally by promoting cross-cultural performances as a way to foster greater understanding of other countries and their musical traditions.

A bachelor's degree is required for this position as is at least seven years of fundraising experience. All applications must be accompanied by a cover letter and résumé. Cover letters should be responsive to the mission of Young People's Chorus of NYC as well as the responsibilities and qualifications presented in the prospectus.
