Part-Time Positions Available

The Branch County Community Foundation has three part time paid positions available.

We are looking for 2 part time Youth Advisory Council (YAC) Advisors. The primary responsibility of the Advisor is to oversee YAC, a group that is comprised of youth (14-21) from Branch County and Colon, Michigan. The advisor will be capable of working with young people and be comfortable with guiding, rather than directing, the development of youth leaders.  The role of the advisor is to assist YAC, while allowing the young people to really take ownership in each project or task that they work on.                 

The Community Foundation is also looking for a part time Administrative Assistant. The primary responsibility would be to respond to phone and visitor inquiries; processes donor gifts and payments to grantees and vendors; work with other staff to maintain records, process complex documents, and compile regular and special reports. This is a great opportunity for a young person to learn new skills or for someone who wants to give of their knowledge and expertise to a high impact charity. If you’re interested in learning more about the open positions, give us a call at 517.278.4517 or email us at
