Job Type


Company is a complex organization operating in multiple locations with multiple programs serving multiple age groups, yet is banded by one unifying feature: Community. This is a compelling opportunity for a seasoned chief executive to assume leadership of a highly regarded organization, build upon its legacy of expanding services and initiatives, and lay out a bold vision and strategy for the future. The new CEO will have the pleasure of stewarding a passionate, collaborative, high-performance organizational culture; the benefit of strong brand recognition with government leaders; and the opportunity to form additional strategic relationships with new partners and funders.

The CEO will report to the MNC Board of Directors, will have responsibility for a staff of over 200 employees, and will directly supervise the COO, CFO, Chief Program Officer, and Chief Policy & External Affairs Officer. As an organization administering a federal Head Start program--and as the largest provider in San Francisco--the CEO also receives direction from the Head Start Parent Policy Council.
