The Possible Project
The Possible Project’s programming includes the operation of two in-house businesses, known as TPP Enterprises, focused on the following objectives: to educate and empower students through the enriching experience of working collaboratively in an established, multi-faceted business; and to generate profits that can go right back into the organization’s programming costs. One of these enterprises, Made Possible, is looking to hire a seasoned professional to contribute to the day-to-day operations. The Made Possible Business Associate will serve as a business development lead, technical instructor, and student mentor, helping the team achieve revenue goals, while improving the job readiness skills and workforce opportunities of TPP students and alumni. TPP is seeking a candidate who has experience in and working knowledge of business operations and business development, project management in design and digital fabrication, as well as youth development.
