A pair of friends who were retiring from Microsoft were impressed by Friends of the Children’s use of data and the profound impact of using professional mentors (called Friends) to support youth facing the highest risks of school dropout, involvement in the juvenile justice system, and early parenthood. In 2000, they founded Friends of the Children-Seattle (Friends-Seattle) , which is leading the movement and is serving as a model for other organizations across the country. Friends-Seattle identifies kindergarten children in Seattle Public Schools who face the greatest challenges and connects them with salaried, full-time, professional mentors for 12½ years. No matter what.
As they enter their next phase of growth, Friends-Seattle seeks a dynamic Executive Director (ED) who is driven by a passion to break the cycle of generational poverty by supporting the youth who are the most vulnerable at the most at risk. The new ED will lead the organization as Friends-Seattle is on track to double the number of youth it serves by 2020.
The ideal candidate will be an entrepreneurial, collaborative leader who has the ability to inspire a team to be agile and creative and surpass ambitious goals.
