The Brick House Community Resource Center is seeking a new Executive Director!
The Brick House, which has served the Turners Falls/Montague area for 30 years, currently supports the community through two main programs: the Community Connections Coalition (Parent and Family Services), and our onsite Youth Drop-In Center.
Through Community Connections, we work collaboratively with families and community partners to assess and improve the accessibility and effectiveness of local resources to meet basic needs, and encourage parent leadership, family involvement, healthy communication, and community building.
The Youth Drop-In Center provides a safe, fun environment for youth ages 11-19 to make connections with supportive adults, build friendships, and access resources. We offer skill building classes in the visual arts and music through our Momentum Arts program. We offer health and wellness classes, job and college application support, and create opportunities for empowerment, leadership, and social justice education youth learn through the Youth Leadership Program.
The Brick House also provides affordable space to community members for performances, meetings, potlucks, and other gatherings, and a movement studio available for classes, workshops, and group and personal practice.
We have identified four key areas of experience and ability necessary for this position: Program Oversight/Supervision, Community Involvement, Fiscal/Fundraising, and Strategic Planning.
Program Oversight/Supervision: Proven ability to ensure program and grant goals; supportive and effective supervision of staff.
Community Involvement: Understanding of the unique needs, resources, and partner organizations in our local community.
Fiscal/Fundraising: Track record of grant procurement, donor relationship building, and achieving fundraising goals. Work with the Business Manager on budget planning and operations.
Strategic Planning: Work closely with the Board of Directors and staff, following the mission and goals of our Strategic Plan, and helping create a vision for the organization moving forward.
The Brick House is an equal opportunity employer. Because we seek to root all our work in social equity, we strongly encourage applications from people of color and members of other marginalized communities
