Jeff Escabar, our current Executive Director, will be leaving NGS at the end of June to lead an Independent Pre-School in San Francisco. A Board Level search committee, led by Zuleika Godinez (long time NGS board member and former NGS staff member) will be working with Koya Partners, a leader in mission-driven executive search, to find NGS’s next Executive Director.

As Zuleika notes, “The ED role is critical to supporting our 200 Scholars, their families and engaging with our partners and we look forward to engaging with the community as we hire our next Executive Director.” Andy Arenberg, Board Chairperson, adds “Jeff has made significant contributions to NGS in his two years as ED and we are incredibly thankful for his leadership and engagement with the team, the Scholars, the Board and all of our partners”.
