Volunteer:  Executive Director

From Nest to Wings “Nest” is a small nonprofit in Longmont, Colorado. Our focus is on providing tools and resources to students, parents, and guardians “as they navigate all aspects of the transition to post-high school educational opportunities.”  We are an entirely volunteer organization from the Board of Directors to the Executive Director to the work team that makes everything happen. Annually we put on several conferences and seminars where students and parents connect with experts in the field on key aspects of this transition. On a more routine basis we provide a variety of supportive informational materials and videos. Our goal is to help students and parents gain a better understanding of the possibilities and processes for inclusion and success in life after high school.

We are looking for a new Executive Director. This is a part-time position. The Board wants the Executive Director to spend no more than 20-25 hours per week helping From Nest to Wings achieve its mission and being the “face” of the organization In the Longmont and the surrounding areas. The Board is flexible in how the hours are scheduled and used during any given month or quarter, hopefully providing options for the new Executive Director.

As mentioned, Nest is a small nonprofit and as a result is limited financially. As a result, this is volunteer, unpaid position. The Board is, however, open to financial “bonus” considerations for the Executive Director based on our future fundraising success.

Nest does not have a formal, brick and mortar office and the Executive Director would work from their home when not meeting with community members and organizations to promote our mission or putting on conferences and seminars.

This would be a great opportunity for someone wanting to help grow a small nonprofit into a significant organization or to get some Executive Director experience before going on to a larger nonprofit or even to use their corporate skills in a new arena.  

Go to our website, nesttowings.org, for more information on our organization.
