The Director is expected to become a champion for children in the County, building a department that will become the go-to resource for comprehensive information on early learning and out-of-school time. It will be designed to be laser-focused on how best to bridge gaps; coordinate, attract, and leverage resources; expand equitable access regardless of geography, race, income, and other factors; track outcomes; and ensure high quality standards. Over time, the aspiration is to establish Allegheny County as a national leader in high-quality children’s programming, underpinned by commitments to advancing equity, increasing access, and prioritizing accountability. 


The position calls for a strategic, highly collaborative leader and spokesperson who is excited about the challenge of building a government department from the ground up. Candidates must be able to engage productively with a wide array of stakeholders and must bring the professional experience and expertise to serve as a credible and effective advocate on behalf of children and families.
