The Opportunity

WBGC is the go-to place for kids to be after school in a safe, engaging environment. It is the largest non-profit dedicated to serving children and teens year-round in Watertown, serving approximately 160 children each day and 1,400 youth members throughout the year. This is an exciting time for the organization. The board and staff are enthusiastic about deepening and broadening the Club’s services, working closely with the local public schools, adopting structured programming from Boys and Girls Club of America, and expanding local partnership opportunities in technology, robotics, community service, recreation, and the arts. The board is engaged and intentional in its development and new funding opportunities are being developed in the expanding corporate community, especially in the fast-growing Life Sciences industry in Watertown.

In addition, the Club is in the early planning stages of a major new initiative, named New Foundations.  Over the next several years, this will involve expanding into and renovating previously rented-out ground floor space for the youngest members, grades 1-3, and developing and implementing new structured programming for both the first-through-third graders and the older members.  The new Executive Director will play a central role in helping to shape and guide this once-in-a-decade opportunity to position the Club for growth and growing excellence for the next generation of Watertown children.

WBGC’s next leader has all of this to leverage. The Executive Director is responsible for bringing the WBGC mission to life, working to ensure that youth achieve great futures by providing a safe and fun space, an engaging Club Experience, and managing caring professionals to guide them along the way. Upcoming expectations of the new executive are to:

  • Bring and develop a vision for WBGC’s future and robust, innovative, relevant, and structured programming for children and teens
  • With the Board, raise the funds necessary for bold approaches and programming to achieve organizational goals and the ongoing need for operational funding
  • Promote WBGC services to individuals, other service organization, and the local community, building additional partners, including the schools, for broader programming, community engagement, and opportunities
  • Monitor and approve the organization’s program services and assure achievement of its mission and goals, including that the physical space is desirable and appropriate
  • Build a staff team that meets the needs of the Club members and the organization, enhances staff performance, and assures a quality workplace committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion
  • Embrace and leverage the community and changing business and resident demographics in Watertown, acknowledging the deep history of the Club
