SAYA! seeking an Executive Director

July 30, 2009

South Asian Youth Action (SAYA!) is seeking an Executive Director.  Here is the summary (more details here):

Founded in 1996, South Asian Youth Action (SAYA!) is a dynamic youth development organization dedicated to providing and advocating for the necessary supports and opportunities to ensure the success of low-income South Asian youth in New York City. Our programs serve approximately 600 children and youth annually and are offered at schools and sites across Queens. SAYA! also promotes its mission through advocacy on immigrant rights and educational policy related to immigrant youth.

SAYA!’s current budget is nearly $1.5 million and the organization employs over 40 full and part-time staff. We are seeking a talented, passionate and seasoned leader who will bring vision, expertise and topnotch management skills to build on the organization’s success and take it to the next level of impact. The Executive Director will help execute the organization’s mission, vision and strategy through the highest degree of effectiveness, scale and sustainability.

Some of you may recall that Sayu Bhojwani, SAYA! founder and former E.D., did a very insightful guest post for us during our first-ever blog forum hosted by Sudhir Venkatesh.  Check that out, plus an inspiring 2004 interview with Sayu.
