Dear Horizons for Youth Community,
In early March, the Horizons for Youth Board of Directors and Audrey George announced that she would be leaving the organization after 20 remarkable years of leadership.
An exhaustive search for the organization’s next Executive Director began in earnest immediately, involving various internal stakeholders and outside executive search experts. At the culmination of a thorough four-month process, an outstanding list of worthy candidates came down to one unanimous selection. It is my pleasure to announce that Greg Borkowski will become Horizons for Youth’s Executive Director, effective August 31, 2020. Greg’s impressive track record of achievement in senior executive leadership positions in both the non-profit and university worlds includes tenures at the Golden Apple Foundation, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Northwestern University and, most recently, DePaul University.
“After meeting Horizons for Youth families, staff and supporters during this process, I knew I wanted to be a part of this community,” said Greg. “I can’t wait to hit the ground running and continue the mission of changing the lives of Chicago students and families.”
