CEO Program Facilitator Jackson County CEO  

Now in its fifth year - is seeking a disciplined yet innovative and adaptable facilitator to take the reins of our transformational high school entrepreneurship program and lead it forward. 
The CEO Facilitator will create a learning environment in which students are encouraged to explore, discover and experience learning by visiting local business entrepreneurs at their businesses. The facilitator's role is to model a passion for learning, connect with students and community, collaborate with the CEO Board, provide guidance to the students as they work together to create a class business and then focus on creating their own individual business. 
Students in the program are juniors and seniors from four Jackson County high schools and will meet from 7:30 AM to 9:00 AM Monday - Friday during the school year. 90 minutes of the day is spent with the students, and the balance is used for arranging business visits, guest speakers, calling on business people, and collaborating with board members. Our facilitator must have a passion for working with high school juniors and seniors. 
Experience in business, preferably entrepreneurship, is beneficial as students will be running a class business, developing business plans complete with financial projections, meeting with bankers and selling their products/services at a trade show. This is a half-time position requiring a Career and Technical Educator license. The board will help guide the right candidate to get the license provided they possess 60 college semester hours in a related field plus 2000 hours in business. 

Interested applicants should submit resume and cover letter via e-mail by Friday, April 26 to: jjpfeifer78@gmail.com
