Good Beginnings of Central Vermont seeks an Executive Director to lead the organization through the next chapter of its growth. The ideal candidate will be a collaborative and inspiring leader with a strong nonprofit background and a passion for GBCV’s mission of bringing community to families and their babies.
Who We Are: Good Beginnings of Central Vermont (GBCV) is a grassroots nonprofit organization based in Montpelier, offering parents respite, emotional support, education, and connections to resources before and after the birth or adoption of a baby. At the heart of what we do is our network of dedicated community members who volunteer their time. For more than 30 years, families have relied on GBCV for this support; in recent years, we have expanded our emphasis on raising awareness of mental health challenges during the perinatal period (pregnancy through 12 months postpartum) and improving access to resources for families experiencing these challenges. Each year, we support hundreds of families throughout Central Vermont in their homes, remotely over Zoom or by phone, at our office in “The Nest,” and through events and outings that bring families together. Any family with a new baby is eligible, regardless of income or circumstance.
Position Summary: The Executive Director has overall strategic, fiscal, and operational responsibility for the organization and will: 1) lead a team of two staff members and 60+ community volunteers; 2) execute the organization’s mission, vision, and strategic plan; 3) oversee the development and implementation of an updated, post-pandemic organizational strategy; and 4) ensure the organization has sufficient resources to sustain its vital work supporting parents.
