Now adding to the board:

Good Shepherd Services

With a budget of roughly $65M/year, Good Shepherd Services is the leading youth development, education and family service agency in New York, serving over 20,000 program participants a year. They give vulnerable youth the opportunity to take ownership of their future, making a difference today and for the next generation.

Focusing on high-need communities in Brooklyn and the Bronx, GSS provides a broad array of individual, family and school-based services to prevent youth from becoming disconnected from family, school and society. They also help those who come to them already disengaged find hope and motivation to reconnect with their community. When young people cannot stay in their families, they continue to provide a safety net of superior quality foster care and residential programs, as they have since 1857.

GSS is one of the largest, oldest and most established non-profits in NYC, run by an exceptionally strong Executive Director.  Board meets four times a year in midtown Manhattan from 4:30-6.  Financial contribution is not insignificant.  Board is an impressive mix of successful business professionals where most of our candidate base would feel a strong cultural fit.
