Who we are: GBCV is a grassroots nonprofit organization based in Montpelier, offering parents respite, emotional support, education, and connections to resources before and after the birth or adoption of a baby. At the heart of what we do is our network of dedicated community members who volunteer their time. For more than 30 years, families have relied on GBCV for this support; in recent years, we have expanded our emphasis on raising awareness of mental health challenges during the perinatal period (pregnancy through 12 months postpartum) and improving access to resources for families experiencing these challenges. Each year, we support hundreds of families throughout Central Vermont in their homes, remotely over Zoom or by phone, at our office in “The Nest,”  and through events and outings that bring families together. Any family with a new baby is eligible, regardless of income or circumstance.

Qualifications: Bachelor’s degree with a minimum of three years of experience in nonprofit organizations is required (visit the GBCV website for a complete list of required qualifications).

Salary & Benefits: $26/hour, depending on experience. All employees receive a minimum of three weeks of paid time off plus 10 paid holidays per year.

Work environment: This is a part-time position budgeted for 24 hours per week. GBCV supports flexible work schedules and encourages a healthy work-life balance for all employees. Evening and weekend work may be required on occasion. The potential exists for future growth into a full-time position, depending on fundraising goals and a candidate’s interests. GBCV encourages professional development to support staff and the organization.

How to apply: Please apply with a resume, cover letter, and three references to [email protected].

Deadline for applications: Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis beginning April 28, 2023, and the position is open until filled.
