Trips for Kids Hires New Executive Director, North America

A new phase of long term growth and sustainability to serve at-risk youth across North America is launched

Trips for Kids (TFK) demonstrated their long term commitment to underserved youth, hiring a new Executive Director for North America, Eric Goldman that will oversee the Trips For Kids - North America organization.

This organization will be responsible for working closely with local chapters to collaborate on strategic national alliances, new sources of funding and sponsorship opportunities, as well as the formation of new chapters.

Trips For Kids currently has 69 financially independent chapters that offer a variety of programs for underserved youth, typically from economically disadvantaged inner city communities of color. These youth typically come to TFK from local agencies that serve this population including: school organizations, youth centers, and larger nonprofits such as Boys and Girls Club of America.

Marilyn Price, founder, board member and director of the Marin Chapter is "delighted to see her 22-year effort focused on new growth that will significantly increase the number of youth currently engaged in the program every year."

Trips For Kids Board Member and CFO of Thomas Weisel Partners lead the search to find the right candidate for this position. Asked about the decision to hire Goldman, Stanley said "I don't think we could have found a more qualified person to lead our national growth into the next decade. Eric has experience in the nonprofit sector focused on access to higher education for underserved youth and demonstrated success in the for-profit sector as a senior executive at companies including, Esprit, Levi and Disney in the areas of business development, strategic planning, global brand management and organizational modeling. The combination of his commitment to underserved youth coupled with his 20+ years of experience makes me confident about our selection."

For more information about TFK and to donate to the organization, please visit www.tripsforkids.org or contact Eric Goldman at 415.578.3708 / efgoldman@tripsforkids.org.
