Job Description: 

Would you like to spend your days working to promote the well-being of Colorado communities? Do you want to advance your career and push yourself personally and professionally? Do you want to join a network of influential alumni? Become an El Pomar Fellow!

El Pomar Fellows serve as Program Associates for El Pomar Foundation, a $600 million private grant making organization dedicated to bettering the lives of the people of Colorado. The two-year, full-time position provides recent college graduates with leadership development opportunities most people will not experience until late in their careers, if ever. Each year, the Fellowship brings together a cohort of 8-10 talented and driven individuals from diverse backgrounds. Incoming Fellows arrive with varied educations and experiences but also share critical commonalities: a connection to Colorado, a desire to lead, a willingness to learn and a commitment to make a difference. The dynamic nature of the work, complemented by the opportunity to intentionally develop leadership and professional skills, serves as a springboard as Fellows transition into graduate school or careers in the nonprofit, private, or public sectors.

When grant dollars alone aren’t the solution, El Pomar creates and operates programs that encourage leadership and promote community development. The primary responsibility of the Fellows is to staff and direct the Foundation’s community stewardship programs and provide support to the central functions of the Foundation.

Fellows spend approximately 80% of their time on program management and 20% on leadership and professional development.

Required Qualifications
• Bachelor’s degree
• Capable of traveling throughout the state of Colorado on official Foundation business
• Have a Colorado connection, e.g. be a state resident, have attended an in-state college/university, or have family who are current or former residents
