YouthLink is one of the longest standing and most experienced nonprofit youth service providers in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis-Saint Paul, Minnesota. For more than 45 years, YouthLink has supported and empowered young people on their journey to self reliance, remaining a safe refuge for young people experiencing and/or at-risk of homelessness. An independent nonprofit, today YouthLink is a "one-stop" continuum of inclusive, youth-centered services and interventions, coaching, encouraging, and helping youth believe in themselves and have the self-confidence to use their gifts and talents to plan for the future.

YouthLink is seeking a proven and youth-centered leader as its next Executive Director, responsible for the achievement of the organization’s mission, strategic goals, and financial objectives. Grounded in both strategic execution and operational diligence, the new Executive Director will focus on strengthening the organizational infrastructure, systems, and culture to support the organization’s mission and future stability.

This Executive Director will be an inspirational leader and authentic advocate with an incredible opportunity to assume leadership of a nonprofit vital to Minneapolis’ youth. The successful candidate will inspire an inclusive, youth-centered, entrepreneurial, and results-oriented culture and promote YouthLink with care, compassion, and with the youth voice at its core.
