Job Details

The Program Director (PD) focuses on nurturing the Kern Entrepreneurial Engineering Network (KEEN). Driven by a passion for infusing engineering education with the entrepreneurial mindset and an enthusiasm for building new relationships, the PD identifies, educates, and recruits prospect institutions for deeper engagement in KEEN. In addition, the PD engages existing KEEN partners, discovering how to increase their impact within their institution and within the Network. The PD is an exceptional communicator, proactive relationship builder, and effective account executive. The PD understands how to identify the needs of Network partners and connect them to other partners and/or resources that will increase their impact. 

The PD is first and foremost a person of strong character, who demonstrates a high level of integrity and accountability. S/he has an entrepreneurial mindset and can recognize new ways to build upon the Foundation’s past work. The PD is organized and data-driven, striving to define impact with objective measurements. The PD is team-oriented and network-minded, recognizing that the greatest achievements are often due to the work and input of more than one person or organization. Finally, the PD is passionate about the Foundation’s animating ideas and the opportunities to make significant, systemic change.


The Kern Family Foundation’s mission is to empower the rising generation of Americans to build flourishing lives anchored in strong character, inspired by quality education, driven by an entrepreneurial mindset, and guided by the desire to create value for others. We focus on initiatives that have long-term, systemic impact. The Foundation was established in 1998 by Robert D. and Patricia E. Kern, founders of Generac Power Systems.
