The Asheville Waldorf School is seeking its first Development Director to usher in our next phase of growth that includes a new facility and a growing student body.
The ideal candidate will be familiar with Waldorf practices and embrace anthroposophy. We are seeking an individual with experience in community building and planning and executing fundraising events and campaigns. People who have a genuine and warm personality, assertive communication style, and project management and diplomacy skills are encouraged to apply.
Asheville Waldorf School:
The Asheville Waldorf School is entering its twelfth school year. In the 2023/24 school year, we will be offering multiple parent-child classes, two nursery classes, two kindergartens, and grades 1-8. Our growth has been consistent, even through the challenges of COVID-19, and our class sizes are healthy.
The Asheville Waldorf School became an associate member of WECAN in 2017 and of AWSNA in 2018. Our organization consists of a cohesive and striving Faculty, a Board of Directors that draws members from both the parent body and the community, a committed Administration, and a loving and involved community of parents and families.
Asheville, North Carolina:
Asheville is an ideal place to live, well known and visited for its beautiful outdoors (it is surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains and three National Forests, and at the confluence of two major rivers), its abundance of activity options that come with the landscape and ecosystem, and its rich arts, crafts, and music culture. Asheville’s many restaurants and microbreweries make it a highly sought out tourist destination. Local sustainable agriculture is also a hallmark of this town, which supports seventeen Farmers Markets for less than 100,000 residents. If you like to eat local organic food, participate in public music events (like community chorus), and be immersed in the arts, it is a great place where you will be warmly welcomed.
