West Suburban YMCA
The YMCA of Greater Boston is one of Massachusetts’ leading nonprofits committed to strengthening the communities we serve by improving health, empowering youth, and activating people to do good — for the good of all. Every day the Y works with thousands of individuals, families, and children to ensure that everyone, regardless of age, income, or background, has access to Y programs and services. We stand united and believe everyone belongs at the Y. Since 1851, the YMCA of Greater Boston — America’s first Y — has been developing skills and emotional well-being through education and training, welcoming and connecting diverse populations of all ages, preventing chronic disease, and building healthier communities. We remain committed to bridging the “opportunity gap,” to create a community free of racism, inequities, and inequality. The YMCA of Greater Boston purposefully creates programs, services, and spaces where all are seen, heard and safe. Our service philosophy is to: “Put people first, listen and then service, and inspire hope.” This commitment is made possible by acting as one association, not multiple subparts, and by being an employer, partner, and charity of choice in Greater Boston. This Branch Executive Director will lead the Huntington Avenue Branch, America’s first YMCA located in the Fenway cultural district of the City of Boston, rich in academia, arts, culture, education, and research. The Branch underwent a $40 million renovation in 2014, resulting in a 62,390 square ft modern state of the art full facility/ community center which also houses the Y of Greater Boston’s corporate offices.
Under the direction of an assigned Senior Executive Director, the Branch Executive Director will lead, coach and hold others accountable to creating a transformative Y Experience. The Branch Executive Director must possess strong leadership acumen to inspire staff, volunteers, partners and community members to support the Y mission. The Branch Executive must be a subject matter expert and innovator in the core business and programs of the Y.

Innovation will be a key area of growth for the Executive Director, and the Operations Director they supervise, through mastering, demonstrating and coaching others in Design Thinking.
