Mobius is proud to announce the hiring of Burlington resident Chad Butt as its new executive director. Prior to joining Mobius, Butt worked as the Senior Programs Director for The DREAM Program in Boston, helping lead its mentoring expansion efforts from Vermont into Massachusetts.
“I’m thrilled to be back in Vermont and continuing to work in the mentoring field,” said Butt. “The work mentoring programs do is such an invaluable part of the community.”
Butt brings over 13 years of varied experience in mentoring with the DREAM program to his new position. He began as a DREAM mentor during his schooling at Dartmouth College, and has helped lead successful program expansion and replication efforts throughout communities in Vermont, as well as the founding of the organization’s second office in Boston in 2009.
The DREAM Program, a partner agency of Mobius since 2003, is a “Village Mentoring” organization that pairs volunteer college student mentors with youth from local affordable housing neighborhoods in long-term mentoring matches.
Since 2003, Mobius has served mentoring programs in Chittenden County as a regional mentoring umbrella organization. Through a collaborative effort with mentoring programs and funders, Butt will lead the organization’s transition into a statewide mentoring partnership.
Mobius’ mission is to develop a culture of mentoring for youth in Vermont. Mobius is supported by the Permanent Fund for Vermont’s Children, the A.D. Henderson Foundation, and the State of Vermont.
