ParentCorps is seeking an experienced, visionary business development manager to develop and lead a defined business strategy to scale ParentCorps.

The Center for Early Childhood Health and Development (CEHD) in the Department of Population Health (DPH), NYU Grossman School of Medicine is composed of a racially and ethnically diverse group of researchers, mental health professionals, educators and staff, working in NYC and around the globe to improve the health and development of children and advance health equity by developing and testing real-world solutions for children living in low-income communities.

Based in CEHD, ParentCorps is an evidence-based model that partners with pre-K programs in historically disinvested communities, with long-term positive impacts on children’s long-term mental health, physical health, and academic achievement. In close partnership with pre-K programs, ParentCorps works to build a different pre-K experience – one that centers race and culture, engages parents as partners, and supports children's social-emotional well-being – to help unlock the full promise of early childhood education.
