Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Grant funds will be used to hire an operations manager and a production supervisor. The operations manager will be responsible for volunteer coordination, administrative responsibilities, costume and set management. The production supervisor will collaborate with the artistic director to set rehearsal schedules, coordinate community performances, coordinate stage logistics and supervise the main stage. The creation of these positions will reduce the high demands placed on volunteers. The North Ballet Youth Company will have achieved the desired outcomes if the organization is able to hire an operations manager and a productions supervisor. The Executive Director will lead the hiring process with input from the Board. They will publicize both positions, conduct interviews, and hire the best candidates. The new hires will be trained by Board members and will receive supervision and feedback. The new staff members will be successful if they are able to effectively complete their tasks.
