The Literacy Council of Montgomery County (LCMC) seeks a skilled nonprofit leader with a passion for the transformative impact of improved adult literacy and the ability to manage and lead organizational growth. LCMC’s mission is to enable adults to transform their lives and enrich our community through English literacy.

More about the Job:

The Organization

LCMC is a private non-profit organization that provides basic literacy and English as a Second Language (ESL) instruction to adults in Montgomery County, Maryland. The organization supports programs – both one-on-one and classroom instruction – in basic literacy, ESL and specialized instruction on Family, Health and Workplace English literacy.

LCMC serves the community by training and deploying more than 550 volunteers as well as 21 paid contract classroom instructors. Learning takes place across Montgomery County at public libraries and LCMC’s offices in the Rockville library. LCMC has programmatic and funding relations with the state of Maryland and Montgomery County. Since the organization’s inception, we have trained more than 10,000 volunteer tutors, who have taught more than 20,000 adult learners.

LCMC exists to address a growing need for English Literacy services in the community. The organization has evolved over the last 54 years to teach English language skills to adults who want to speak, read, and write English as a second language or to native English speakers who are unable to read and write in any language. These services are primarily funded through grants and donations, and are low cost or free to the learners. LCMC is part of a network of organizations serving Montgomery County adults with limited English proficiency.

With the growing need for LCMC’s services, the organization has grown and continues to grow in the number of learners served and in the programs offered to the public. LCMC currently serves more than 1,500 learners, which represent less than 1% of the estimated 130,000 people with limited English proficiency in Montgomery County. LCMC seeks to increase the number of learners served to 2,000 by FY2021.

LCMC has 13 headquarters staff and 21 part-time instructors. The Executive Director has five direct reports: Director of Programs, Director of Operations, Development and Communications Coordinator, Volunteer Program Coordinator, and an Administrative Assistant.

The annual budget is approximately $1.2 million, including the value of an in-kind contribution of space at the Rockville public library. Major funders include Montgomery County and the Maryland Department of Labor Licensing and Regulation. The organization is financially strong, with six months of operating funds in reserve.

LCMC is governed by a volunteer Board that includes people with backgrounds in literacy, immigration, education, finance and other areas.

Strategic Priorities

In late 2015, LCMC completed a strategic plan that identified organizational priorities including:

  • Implement a new system that establishes a pathway for each student that improves outcomes and helps adapt to changing requirements of the federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act.
  • Nurture and expand collaborations with partners to increase the pathways to success of students.
  • Develop a strategic approach to volunteer engagement that enhances outcomes and deepens volunteers’ connection to LCMC.
  • Increase the organization’s visibility and brand recognition.
  • Continue to build, develop and nurture a strong staff team.
  • Work with the Board to enhance and develop capacity.

For more information, visit literacycouncilmcmd.org.

The Position

Reporting to the Board, the Executive Director leads the staff and operations of the organization while working in partnership with the Board to set the strategic direction and implement strategic priorities.

Key Responsibilities

  • Serve as the external spokesperson for LCMC, representing the organization and building relationships with key nonprofit, corporate, and government stakeholders.
  • Create and implement a fundraising plan that is aligned with LCMCs strategic direction.
  • Build on LCMC’s track record while working to implement best practices in adult literacy.
  • Ensure that students, teachers, and volunteers have a positive experience by emphasizing customer service throughout the organization.
  • Provide strong financial leadership and expand the organization’s funding base.
  • Maintain existing, and develop new partnerships to expand LCMC’s reach and impact.
  • Lead and manage staff, promote teamwork, and ensure ongoing attention to professional development and retention strategies.
  • Provide leadership and support to the Board and its committees that continue to build Board capacity.

Experience and Attributes

Ideal candidates for this position will be knowledgeable and passionate about education/adult literacy and nonprofit management. Other qualifications include:

  • Track record of change management that has led to organizational growth.
  • Ability to work with diverse populations.
  • Relationships in and knowledge of Montgomery County preferred.
