The Associate Vice President, Foundation & Government Relations for Latin American Programs, will play a key role in securing support from foundation and government sources for Covenant House International’s affiliate sites in Latin America: Casa Alianza Mexico, La Alianza (Guatemala), Casa Alianza Honduras and Casa Alianza Nicaragua. Each of these programs is among the most distinguished human rights organizations across the Americas, having received numerous international honors and awards, including the Hilton Humanitarian Award, the Olof Palme Medal, the Vital Voices Award and The Merced Foundation’s Razon de Ser award. The Associate Vice President will play a lead role in developing and writing proposals in close collaboration with the SVP, Latin America and staff at each of the four sites and play a leadership role in stewarding new and existing sources of funding. The position requires a strong commitment to the mission of Covenant House International’s work in Latin America, and a deep cultural competence in working with, and representing, our teams in Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala and Mexico with existing and prospective funders as well as with NGO’s and other partners. The position will involve occasional travel to Mexico and Central America, especially in the first 18 months of service, to develop expertise in our programs and services, and familiarity with challenges, opportunities, and needs. The work will involve collaboration with Covenant House International leadership and Foundations team to strategize and maximize funding opportunities; tracking and ensuring the timely adherence to proposal and reporting guidelines, deadlines and responsibilities; and maintaining and enhancing relationships to support Covenant House International and services for children and youth experiencing homelessness and human trafficking in Latin America.
