About Next Generation Scholars

Next Generation Scholars (NGS), a Marin nonprofit organization, believes that a young person’s background should not keep them from succeeding. For too many students, where you come from can impact where you end up. As such, NGS’s mission is to create strong and sustainable pathways to and through higher education for under-resourced, first-generation scholars in the community.

The Opportunity

NGS is seeking a dynamic and inspiring leader to be its next Executive Director. This is a unique opportunity to lead an organization dedicated to equipping and empowering first generation, under-resourced Marin County middle and high school students to succeed in college and beyond.

NGS is at an inflection point as it works to implement its new three-year strategic plan. The primary objectives of the plan are to ensure (1) on-going impact and (2) long-term sustainability given NGS’s multi-year engagement model. A secondary focus is to enable growth since they are currently only serving a fraction of the students and families who might benefit from the program.
