Operations Director

Mayhew Program

Fifty-three years strong, Mayhew challenges and helps at-risk New Hampshire boys to believe in themselves, work well with others, and find their best.  Over 200 boys are served annually with a transformative summer experience and school-year mentoring.  It is tuition-free for the boys and the staff are dedicated to providing them with vibrant support.  

Matching the boys with an ever more responsive and meaningful program requires a true and total team effort by the staff, the Board and Mayhew’s family of contributors and friends.

With an annual budget of $1.42 million, over 70% comes from charitable contributions, Mayhew has built an endowment of over $5.7 million and has recently completed a $630,000 capital improvements campaign.

In order to take its next steps as an ever-better support for the boys, Mayhew seeks an experienced leader, a real listener, a guide and doer to step up as its first Operations Director.  This individual knows Mayhew’s success for the boys depends on a well-coordinated, excellent team effort.  And the success of the team depends on each person excelling at their responsibilities, seeing their contributions to the whole and having a “How can I help?” mindset and approach.  The Operations Director knows this doesn’t just happen.  It requires work, unending role modeling, a creative intelligence, humility, dogged persistence and understanding in the face of challenge.
