Our close partner the NC Partnership for Children/Smart Start is seeking a new President.
The North Carolina Partnership for Children (NCPC) is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization that administers Smart Start, an early childhood initiative, in collaboration with a network of 75 nonprofit local partnerships. This structure combines a system for statewide governance and innovation with local inspiration that works in communities across the state. NCPC ensures strong fiscal and programmatic oversight. The 75 local partnerships serve all 100 North Carolina counties and are an engaged and important part of local communities. NCPC gives local partners the flexibility to use data-driven decision making to determine how to increase children’s health, well-being and development based on the needs and resources of their communities. NCPC establishes measurable statewide goals and communities determine the best approach to achieve them.
We are seeking a leader with the skills needed for NCPC’s continued growth and effective performance. While subject matter expertise in the early childhood field is a plus, we are also open to individuals with experience in other fields, who have the core skills and values outlined in this document, and who can motivate and lead a strong professional team.
The successful candidate will have attained an advanced degree and will have completed at least ten (10) years of progressively responsible experience in management of a public agency or nonprofit, or the equivalent in education and experience.
