New Avenues for Youth’s Commitment to Equity:new-avenues
Director of Finance and Quality Assurance.

New Avenues for Youth imagines a community where all young people thrive and experience health, well-being, and a self-determined home. Historical inequities and intersecting forms of oppression such as racism, poverty, adultism, sexism, homophobia, and ableism, among others contribute to marginalization and exploitation of youth. We believe, to redress youth homelessness and housing instability we must challenge and dismantle racism and other forms of oppression and build relationships within our communities that advance equity.

At New Avenues, advancing equity is an ongoing commitment without closure. We remain open-minded and presume best intentions, knowing that discomfort and conflict are inevitable. We take risks and make and learn from our mistakes. We seek multiple perspectives, strive for transparency, remain humble, and resist the urge to silence hard truths.

The Position:

The Director of Finance and Compliance is a member of the senior leadership team primarily charged with overseeing the Finance and Quality Assurance departments. The Director of Finance and Compliance is responsible for all aspects of financial management including audit support, monthly financial analytics, cash flow, budget development and monitoring. This director serves as a strategic partner to program managers; regularly reviewing financial results, program performance, and contract compliance.

SMARsmart-logo-vertical-blackT’S COMMITMENT TO EQUITY

As an early literacy program focused on helping children succeed with reading and learning, SMART can’t ignore that deep racial, cultural, social, and economic inequities in our country and state make it harder for some children to succeed compared to others. SMART’s vision is an Oregon in which every child can read and is empowered to succeed, and we are making equity a top priority.  As part of this, we particularly seek staff members, volunteers, and board members whose personal or professional background gives them unique perspective to further SMART’s work in serving children of color and children from other marginalized groups.
