Website Big Brothers Big Sisters of Westchester and Putnam


Port Chester, NY


Big Brothers Big Sisters of America is the oldest and largest youth mentoring program in the United States. BBBS started over a century ago to match caring adult volunteers with children in one-to-one mentoring relationships.


Today, there are 238 Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies in over 5,000 communities across the United States. More than 275,000 mentors volunteer their time as Bigs, and BBBS made 135,000 new mentoring matches last year alone.


The Big Brothers Big Sisters of Westchester and Putnam chapter was established in 1958 and currently serves hundreds of children throughout New York’s Westchester and Putnam counties through community-based and school-based mentoring programs.


The demand for BBBS services has never been greater. This organization is an essential asset in Westchester and Putnam Counties, strengthening the networks of services available to vulnerable families.  BBBS’s vision is to be creative and inventive in its programs in the new post-COVID world.  In order to sustain its impact, the tried-and-true model of individual matches will remain at the core of programmatic options, but BBBS of Westchester and Putnam will look to the new CEO to build programs to meet the current and future needs of youth facing adversity in the communities it serves.


The new CEO will have the opportunity to work closely with an engaged Board of Directors. The 19-member Board of Directors represents the counties it serves as well as corporations and employers in the New York City metro and suburban areas.  For 65 years, the BBBS model operated under the auspices of Family Services of Westchester. Since incorporating as an independent, standalone chapter in January 2022, the Board recognizes the importance of expanding and professionalizing its governance structure, increasing its level of fundraising, brand recognition, and successfully supporting the CEO and staff as the organization builds a solid foundation for years to come.


The most qualified candidates will demonstrate the ability to establish and maintain effective and collaborative external relationships with current funders, potential donors, and allies in business, government, and community-based organizations. An ability and desire to raise private contributions is necessary and a daily priority of a successful CEO.


The candidate will possess a bachelor’s degree or equivalent education in management or a related human services field and senior executive experience in an organization of a comparable budget, staff, and program size and complexity. A master’s degree is preferred. Demonstration of continuing professional education, accreditation in a professional field and/or nonprofit board leadership would be highly desirable.


The compensation range for this position annually is between $150,000-$180,000.


A generous benefits package includes: Medical, Dental, Vision, Short-Term, and Long-Term Disability Insurance Options; 403-b retirement savings plan with an annual match of 3-6%; Twenty (20) days of Vacation time; Twelve (12) Paid Holidays and Sick time.
