The John F. Kennedy Library Foundation is the nonprofit partner and creative collaborator of the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum, which is administered by the National Archives and Records Administration and holds the definitive historical record of the life, work, and times of John F. Kennedy.
Over the past 40 years, this partnership has produced world-class exhibits; the largest, most advanced digital archive created by a presidential library; award-winning educational and digital resources; and public programs that make the Library the largest convener of public dialogues in the Boston area.
The Director of Awards and Special Programs is responsible for the stewardship and implementation of two awards given annually by the Foundation: the prestigious John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award and the John F. Kennedy New Frontier Awards. In addition, the Director of Awards and Special Programs will be responsible for developing and leading several new Foundation programs that are being created as part of the execution of the Foundation’s strategic plan and that involve educating and creating awareness around President Kennedy’s legacy as an inspirational example of leadership for our time.
This is an opportunity to help shape the important awards and special programs of the JFK Library Foundation and to continue to make President Kennedy’s example of leadership accessible and relevant to new generations. This role is a unique way to support the ideals that President Kennedy championed and to extend his legacy into today.
