Desired Skills & Experience:
So - read the following two boxes as the same running theme, because essentially, I'm just going to write straight through them. TL; DR? Sorry...I'm verbose...but worth the read. An auto repair nonprofit is looking for board members. Come help us join the fight against poverty, corrupt mechanics, and dangerous public transportation. My name is Joel M. Barr and I am the Executive Director of Need A-part, a car repair nonprofit along with Chance Cox, a mechanic with 20 years of experience. Need A-part is dedicated to helping working people fix their cars and continue to lead productive lives. We began over a Jeep Wrangler back in October (258 I6 - the furnace story, if you want something to ask about, and have a laugh at my expense) became a nonprofit on May 10th, and we've been running ever since. In the 80 or so days we've been "official" we have helped 65 people. Some working/struggling to make ends meet, some living in their car with their kids. We help everyone, rich or poor...we both have struggled to make it in life, and we want to help others who are struggling too. Remember back when you had your first car in college? Do you remember when it had its first major issue and you had to decide between whether to buy that book for macroeconomics that needed it's own financing and forklift, or feed yourself on something better than meager rations of sluice & hard tack, or buy clothes? And you realized that while a car gave you mobility, that when it broke it was literally a need apart from everything else? Believe us, so have we. That's why we started Need A-part. So that it would eliminate that choice, or at least make it a softer choice. We make the argument (and will continue to till our dying day) that the greatest obstacle to upward mobility is the ability to be mobile itself - it is the one conversation about poverty no one talks about or tracks. And that mobility is hampered chiefly by mechanics and service writers that see poor people as a way to pay for their house in Aspen, not as a means to advance human progress toward a better life. We're in a fight here, and if you want to help us with our fight, then we'd love to have you. Need A-part works on income brackets. We take into account where people's income comes from, how much they get, what their bills are, and only then, figure out what they can pay for our work. We are non-religious and have no affiliation (sorry, my Jesuit friends...mad respect for you, and all) there are four other garages like us in town who use the same service we provide as a recruitment tool for their congregation - as though preying on their desperation twice over. About us: Chance is an executive director and co-founder with myself - he runs the mechanic's side of things, while I handle the nonprofit side (heavy is the head that wears the crown, right?) He fixes the cars, I do the fundraising, outreach, clients, human resources, etc. etc. We are small...tiny...and we're not perfect..we are fallible and we are human (why you're not reading a dry set of job requirements...cause *yawn* we hate those too) Which is why we are asking for your help. We need board members (we started with 4) - don't have an ideal number in mind, but as many as we can get and still keep the ship on course. Every single day we acquire two-three new clients. Without fail. So we know that the business is there, and we know the need is there, and we know that as poor people become middle class people, our word will spread across all income levels like a brushfire that can't be put out. Because, there isn't a single person out there that hasn't struggled to fix a car economically, or doesn't have a friend that isn't trying their hardest but just can't quite get their car to work right. I may well be talking to someone out there right now reading this who is struggling with this...call us...we can make life go a lot easier for you.
General Job Description:
Here's what we're looking for: 1) We need a board member who can contribute financially to the mission of Need A-part and knows well what it's like being broke and having a car and trying to struggle to make it. I cannot tell you how valuable that is. Don't care if it's 200 dollars or 2M dollars. We need support. Chance and I have been doing this since October and haven't gotten a paycheck yet (think about that for a second) 2) We need board members who can lend their degrees, work experience, and wisdom to our mission as we shape policy and spread across the country (oh - I didn't mention the expansion? We want to put a Need A-part in every city where LMI folks struggle...think about how many cities that is in this country...Ambitious? You betcha) We need someone who is smart enough to let us run when we're on a roll, but wise enough to pull back the reigns and reset us. We need captains who know how to steer the ship, but are not above rolling their sleeves up and swabbing the deck when it's called for. 3) We need board members who have connections and relationships already established. Someone who knows how to cultivate donors (I cannot do this by myself), who knows the hidden places where opportunity lies, and doesn't hide it - we are a team, the board and the executive staff...we want you to succeed as much as you want us to succeed and as much as we both want to see our clients succeed. We *want* car dealerships to ally with us. We *want* honest mechanic shops to ally with us and support us, they are not the enemy. It's the bad apples...the ones that knowingly fix one thing and break another just so they can get repeat business, or who victimize those who seek their help - we want to put them out of business...permanently and from coast to coast. 4) The caveat: We do not want board members with egos. If your idea for Need A-part is to walk in like Wyatt Earp cleaning up Tombstone - don't bother. We want people who are humble and have been where our clients are in their lives. People who have been down in the hole and know the way to get out. People that don't just want to help our nonprofit succeed, but want to help our clients succeed...maybe even more. We want people who have a white collar mindset with a blue collar work ethic. So if you want in on the ground floor of a future-nationwide nonprofit, if you think you have what it takes, if you can shake hands with us when we're greasy & oily without batting an eye, and you're itching for a fight with every mechanic in college that screwed you out of your macroeconomics book, the food in your belly, or the clothes on your back just to make a buck, come and fight along side us...because there's TONS of them, and only one Need A-part. Visit our site - READ every link - Find us on FB & Twitter - And join our fight. We look forward to hearing from you.
