ABOUT THE POSITION
The Program Officer, Youth Camping & Swimming, is responsible for supporting the development, implementation, and management of the Youth Camping & Swimming program of the Margaret A. Cargill Philanthropies’ Quality of Life domain. This position operates under the supervision of the Quality of Life Program Director and works in collaboration with other domain and program team members and other MACP staff in supporting and managing an effective grantmaking program to support the strategic content and desired impact for the Youth Camping & Swimming program.
The overall goal for the Youth Camping & Swimming program is to significantly increase the number of youth who experience high-quality out-of-school time enrichment, specifically overnight camping and water safety programs, in order to provide affirming and safe exposure to nature and to build leadership, character, and community.
Margaret Cargill enjoyed the great outdoors and wanted all children to have camping and swimming opportunities. MACP’s Youth Camping & Swimming program recognizes there are many barriers that prevent youth from accessing camping and swimming experiences and strives to improve access, inclusion, and program quality in collaboration with our grantee partners. We are especially interested in improving access, inclusion, and belonging for historically marginalized youth in these spaces, including youth from families with low income, youth from communities of color, youth who identify as LGBTQ+, and youth with disabilities. The program has a national focus in the United States.
Across all programs, MACP supports work in and with communities focused on developing solutions that deliver effective, sustainable programs that improve the quality of life for vulnerable populations. The Quality of Life domain has a broad goal of supporting life’s journey at vulnerable stages for children, young adults, families, and older adults.
