CEO, Avail NYC Pregnancy Resource Network (New York City, NY)

Posted: August 24, 2017

64,000 abortions are performed in New York City each year, the equivalent of 37% of viable pregnancies. That is the largest number for any city in America. (cf. #2 Los Angeles with 43,000 annual abortions). Avail’s vision is to intervene in this injustice so that New York becomes a city where life is valued and lives are transformed. Avail seeks a leader who knows that authentic love overwhelms the fear that drives abortion. Our next CEO’s passion, firmness of purpose, gift for strategy, narrative genius, and ability to love unconditionally will carry Avail to the next level.

In 2015, Avail embarked on a five-year strategic plan. Our next CEO will be excited by the growth described in these priorities and the opportunity to give them further shape. The CEO will lead the scaling of Avail’s fundraising capabilities to meet these objectives:

  • Reach more clients. Our new flagship office allows us to triple the number of clients we see each year (currently more than 1,000 on a budget of $1.6mm). Avail will implement an aggressive online marketing campaign to reach thousands more women and men who need our services.
  • Change more minds. Avail will apply a data-driven approach to client services. In particular, we will expand our support and resources for men, as data underlines that men have a tremendous impact on women’s decisions.
  • Promote healing. We will expand the after-abortion program by at least 10x to reach women who need to find hope and healing.
  • Expand to additional locations. As client numbers increase, Avail will evaluate whether and how to expand to additional locations in strategic parts of New York City.
  • Increase awareness. Avail will expand awareness through partnership, churches, and public initiatives to increase awareness of its hope-filled, gospel-centered approach.
  • Mission: Our mission is to empower New Yorkers facing an unintended pregnancy or past abortion with critical support and resources to inform their decisions, build healthy relationships, and promote healing.

Summary of the Position: The CEO has full responsibility for the organization, and is most importantly the Chief Fundraiser for Avail. In addition to fundraising, you will pursue excellence in leadership, setting strategy, overseeing operations, and public relations. You will be supported by a strong internal operations team to allow you to have a largely external facing role and to facilitate the ability to raise a substantial annual operating budget. You will work closely with the Board of Directors to create a strategic plan and to advance Avail’s vision. You will be responsible for recruiting and managing a team of high-capacity leaders who desire to have an impact on the issue of life in New York City.

The CEO is expected to carry out all responsibilities in a manner consistent with his/her personal faith in Jesus Christ. This is a full-time position based in New York City.

Additional details of the position can be found here.

Nominations, expressions of interest, and resumes should be submitted to Duncan Sahner, co-chair, Avail search committee, at dsahner@gmail.com.

We seek to hire a dynamic educator who sees this position as a ministry, and who will engage our community - children, families and faculty/staff - in its spiritual growth and celebration, and who will be an effective classroom teacher as well.

The ideal candidate will:

Understand and appreciate our mission and philosophy as a Holy Child School
Be energetic and enthusiastic about teaching and working with children
Be well-versed in current thinking and best practices of liturgical development
Have at least 3-5 years experience teaching in a school
