Opportunity Going Forward:

Entering the organization at a crucial moment of time, the new Chief of Adult Services (CAS) will provide critical, timely leadership, systems-thinking, and relational aptitude to the management of Aspire’s Adult Services function, which makes up 70% of the organization’s business.  The need for the new CAS role emerged from Aspire’s recent strategic planning effort, and thus the person who fills it will both oversee the day-to-day operations of Aspire’s current Adult Services work and envision and enact a future that includes more effective internal collaboration, streamlined operations, and increased growth and impact.

As defined in the new strategic plan, Aspire is moving from a “paternalistic” approach, i.e. believing that the service provider knows what is best for their clients, to a “partnership-based” approach, i.e. asking the client what is best for them in order to live the life they have dreamed about. While there is widespread buy-in in Aspire’s new strategic philosophies and plan, the organization now needs to connect the ideas to specific, measurable actions that embody these shifts. Positioned at the intersection of Aspire’s central office functions (FI, HR, etc.) and the organization’s state-level Adult Services operations, the CAS will serve as a key connector and leader of Aspire’s next phase of organizational evolution.

Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer, the Chief of Adult Services will serve on the eight-person Executive team that provides leadership across the entire organization. In this capacity, the CAS will play an integral role in informing, creating, and executing the strategic direction of Aspire.  The CAS will directly manage five staff members, four of whom oversee program operations in an Aspire state (CT, MA, MD, NH) and one of whom oversees facilities. The CAS will serve as the face of Aspire amongst the internal Aspire operating sites as well as within the external Adult Services field, including state and federal collaborators, experts, and innovators.

This position is flexible in terms of location. The successful candidate will live within a commutable distance of one of Aspire’s offices in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, or Maryland and be willing and able to travel ~10 days/month to visit Aspire sites and staff members, attend Executive Team gatherings, represent the organization at external gatherings, etc.

Desired Credentials/Profile of the Ideal Candidate:

  • Knowledge of and passion for work with and on behalf of neurodiverse individuals and the people who support them.

  • A minimum of ten years of multi-faceted leadership experience in the human services field within an organization of comparable size and/or multi-state organization

  • Proven ability to facilitate positive organizational evolution at both the theoretical and tactical levels involving a broad and diverse staff

  • A courageously authentic, decent human being who can have fun at work, be self-reflective and vulnerable, and engage with others in transparent, open, and honest ways

Skills and Experience:

Energetic, Optimistic Organizational Leader

  • Mission-driven leader who is aligned with Aspire’s strategic plan and guiding principles

  • Strong, experience-informed belief in person-centered treatment and support for neurodiverse individuals

  • Systems-thinker who can draw clear connections between an organization’s desired direction and the specific processes and actions that will result in positive organizational development

  • Unwavering in the pursuit of a vision tied to goals, with clear follow-through and a willingness to take risks when necessary

  • Inspires staff to achieve high-quality service delivery, including an appreciation for the value of data and quality measures

Inspiring Manager of Teams and Individuals

  • Exceptional builder of a transparent, supportive, action-oriented team culture centered on relationships, results, and learning

  • Confident in his/her/their ability to manage across their group of Executive Team peers and up to the CEO with clarity and a focus on mutual accountability

  • Proven ability to lead other leaders in their growth and development, including supervisory, facilitation and team-building skills

  • Able to hold self and others to equally consistent high levels of expectations, accountability and performance

Exceptional Communicator and Collaborator

  • Delights in serving as an external representative of Aspire within the ID/DD field

  • Stays abreast of trends and best practices in the Adult Services field

  • Fosters, nurtures, and sustains partnerships with key stakeholders at the state and federal levels

  • Leads and inspires effective collaboration between central support departments and Adult Service program operations, ensuring streamlined communication and organizational efficiency

Who We Are:

Phoenix Charter Academy aims to show the world what all young people can do, and to defy the limitations of societal assumptions, classism, and racism. Phoenix Charter Academy was founded on the unwavering belief that all students can succeed at high levels.
