Big Sky Youth Empowerment (BYEP), an adventure-based group mentoring program, has served young people in Gallatin Valley, MT, for the past twenty years. More than 900 teenagers later, BYEP’s vision remains unchanged: fill in the spaces that school and therapy do not have the means to access, empowering young people through authentic connections made during amazing outdoor adventures and weekly workshops in winter, summer, and fall. With the completion of the new BYEP facility, the organization currently serves approximately 150 youth age 12 to 18, with support from over 50 volunteer mentors and tutors.
Participation in BYEP is voluntary and is an opportunity awarded to vulnerable youth throughout Bozeman and Belgrade who want to make a change in their lives. Youth are grouped with peers, mentors, and program managers and participate in weekend adventures and weekday workshops. Adventures build confidence as participants are challenged in various settings around Gallatin County. Weekly workshops focus on a social emotional life skills curriculum that includes topics such as building healthy relationships, independent decision-making, and interpersonal skills. The goal is to equip teenagers with skills to make educated decisions towards an empowered and independent future.
BYEP seeks a leader who is passionate about teens achieving their full potential and living empowered, independent futures. This individual will demonstrate CEO, Executive Director, or equivalent leadership experience gained over a career of progressive management experience in the nonprofit, corporate, and/or government sectors. This executive has experience mobilizing talent to support impact and organizational outcomes. It is expected that candidates can demonstrate success in building durable relationships with board, staff, volunteers, partners, stakeholders, and donors. This results-oriented leader will demonstrate success in operating a financially healthy and sustainable organization.
