Trinity Boston Foundation is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to building a culturally diverse team and strongly encourages applications from a wide range of backgrounds.
Trinity Boston Foundation (TBF), a respected social justice nonprofit, is seeking a new Executive Director. TBF was born out of the mission of Trinity Church in the City of Boston. We believe that Boston’s future cannot be changed without addressing systemic racism and high levels of trauma and toxic stress through programmatic interventions. Our programs create safe and supportive communities that inspire youth to express their voice, develop their leadership, and achieve their goals.
We work with youth ages 9-21 from Brighton, Charlestown, Chelsea, Dorchester, East Boston, Fenway, Hyde Park, Roxbury, Mattapan, Jamaica Plain and the South End who are impacted by the trauma of systemic racism and poverty. They are at risk of not graduating high school and need increased community attachment. Our programs respect individuals of all faith traditions, including those with no faith tradition.
Research shows that social emotional learning skills increase mental and physical health, academic success, positive relationships, and meaningful contributions to society. TBF helps to develop these skills through three programs: Trinity@McCormack, Trinity Education for Excellence Program (TEEP) and Sole Train: Boston Runs Together, providing direct services to over 600 youth and families.
To truly change the odds, the communities in which our youth live, learn, and develop must also change. Rather than only training 600 young people to navigate the environments that hold them back, we partner with Boston youth-serving organizations to effect enduring change in the systems and organizations that impact an additional 15,000 youth through our Organizational Equity Practice and Trinity Boston Counseling Center.
Three essential community practices form the foundation of our work: trauma-informed care, restorative justice, and racial equity. Together these practices support the growth and development of individual youth, create safe and supportive communities, and help dismantle racist policies and practices that are embedded within all our systems. As a learning organization, we develop and share best practices. We learn from other organizations by creating space for community dialogue, by maintaining accountability in the journey toward racial equity, by training staff and volunteers, and by fostering partnerships and sharing effective practices with other youth-serving organizations.
The Foundation has a staff of 30 and an annual budget of $3 million comprising grants from foundations and corporations (1/3); charitable contributions from individuals (1/3); and Trinity Church grants designated for social justice work, contracts, and events (1/3). In-kind support is provided by the church in the form of office and program space and administrative and financial services. The Foundation is governed by a 24-member Board of Directors. Generous volunteers give their time as mentors and ambassadors in the community.
The Executive Director (ED) ensures effective implementation of the Foundation’s strategic and financial priorities and holds overall responsibility for its staff, programs, and growth. The ED works collaboratively with the Board, staff, Trinity Church leadership, and community partners to achieve its mission. The ED’s performance is reviewed annually by the Board and the Rector of Trinity Church.
