Posted by Economy League of Greater Philadelphia on November 26, 2019

The Economy League of Greater Philadelphia is seeking an entrepreneurial, team-oriented professional to manage a new civic impact program focused on identifying and engaging community members in the Philadelphia area with promising ideas for tackling challenges related to millennial health. The program manager will report to the Managing Director and have primary responsibility for managing all civic impact program activities. This is a contract position, currently funded for 12 months. In 2020, Economy League leadership will work to secure dedicated funding that will enable this role to become a full-time, salaried position.

About the Program

In partnership with Independence Blue Cross, the Economy League will run a purpose-driven community engagement program focused on identifying and supporting community-led solutions to millennial health challenges in Philadelphia.

This program will leverage the proven model for community engagement and civic action that the Economy League developed in partnership with millennial-focused online news site Billy Penn through the Full City Challenge in early 2019.  Adapting approaches from the private sector incubator/accelerator startup space, the Full City Challenge platform engages community members, business and civic leaders, area companies, nonprofit organizations, and public-sector partners to identify and support innovative collaborations that draw upon regional strengths to address civic challenges. This model for purpose-driven community engagement is organized around a call for ideas and a structured process that identifies civic innovators from the community and pairs them with expertise, connections, and other resources necessary to refine and advance their solutions.
