YouthBuild Boston is seeking an exceptional purpose-driven leader committed to social justice, equity, and sustainable employment for young people to serve as its next Executive Director. We are seeking an outstanding role model who sees and believes in the possibility and passion of young people. We are seeking a leader who has the ability to enunciate a vision and to motivate the team to achieve the vision. The new Executive Director will be committed to helping young people transform their communities and their lives, breaking the cycle of poverty through a commitment to work, education, family, and community.
YouthBuild Boston (YBB) is an outstanding nationally respected organization committed to empowering low-income youth. Founded in 1990 with the goal of providing underserved young people with the support and credentials needed to successfully enter the building trades, the new Executive Director will come into an organization with an extraordinary record of achievement in its 30-year history. YBB is a best-in-class leader in providing young people with fundamental opportunities for education and employment. With a budget of more than $2 million and approximately 20 employees, YBB has a diverse set of programs and income streams from grants, contracts, service fees, and revenue generated from
its real estate holdings.
Our Mission is to empower and assist underserved young people from the Boston area with the essential social, vocational, academic, and life skills necessary to navigate a positive pathway to self-sufficiency and neighborhood responsibility.
While YBB promotes the core values of youth development and community service, it stands out as an innovative non-profit offering a hands-on approach to building trades training. Our programs provide vocational education, counseling, and other life skills training that readily strengthen and prepare students for the workforce upon graduation. We focus on the assets of each individual to enable young people to navigate a pathway to a meaningful livelihood. We connect young people to their peers, family, and community in a positive and supportive way.
