Fort Collins / Denver, CO
No Barriers is a nonprofit organization based in Colorado that provides transformative programs and experiences that shift mindsets, create belonging, and foster self-discovery to elevate individuals and their communities. Our history began in 2003 when two separate teams of individuals launched organizations designed to change people’s lives by providing transformative educational experiences. One of the organizations started by working with adults and children with disabilities, while the other worked with middle and high school students. In 2011, the two organizations merged into one, operating as No Barriers. During the next decade, No Barriers expanded in new ways by bringing in other organizations with aligned missions. By partnering and merging with new organizations, No Barriers added a caregiver program and added programming to serve youth on a mountain camp property.
Prior to 2020, No Barriers was primarily an in-person experiential programming organization providing retreats, conferences and expeditions for the many populations that we served. Like many nonprofits, No Barriers canceled in-person programming for 2020 and most of 2021. As a result, the organization made the tough decision to cut staff and weathered the storm of the pandemic. Meanwhile, No Barriers channeled the energy into building a virtual presence and outreach. In addition, the organization invested over $1 million in an accessible mountain campus 45 minutes west of Fort Collins.
Today, No Barriers is proud to offer programming, primarily in-person and with the goal of expanding virtual and/or hybrid formats. While the focus is on core programming, No Barriers has offered corporate leadership training, educator and student No Barriers curriculum and other online programs. These are being evaluated in 2023 to determine what programs will remain and/or be pursued as part of the core offering. The organization is poised for a post-COVID “re-boot” and is looking for a new Executive Director to lead the team into the future.
Reporting to the Board of Directors, the Executive Director is responsible for leading the organization’s administration, fundraising, marketing and strategic plan implementation. Other key duties include program oversight, community outreach, and board development. Most importantly, the new Executive Director will lead the organization forward towards the vision of building an inclusive world for all where barriers don’t stand in the way of possibilities. No Barriers will celebrate 20 years in 2023, and looks forward to the new Executive Director building on the strength of the organization.

Parents who want a better life for their child deserve access to the education, coaching and support needed to become a positive force in that child’s educational and life success. Until all parents, regardless of economic circumstances, are empowered to be their child’s first and most influential teacher, Parent Possible’s work is not done.
We promote and oversee delivery of three proven parent engagement programs- PAT, HIPPY and Vroom–providing access and support, ensuring efficacy and impact, advocating, and collaborating with partners across the state and serving as a liaison between national leaders and local program implementers.
Parent Possible promotes and supports evidence-based, high-quality programs focused on parents of children from birth through kindergarten. Each program seeks to engage parents where they are – inspiring parent involvement, facilitating school readiness, and strengthening opportunities for children to achieve their full potential.
The Executive Director is responsible for providing overall leadership of Parent Possible and its programs, ensuring consistent achievement of the organization’s mission, implementation of its policies, goals, and objectives, and all aspects of fund development and stewardship, short-and long-term strategic planning, advocacy, collaborative partnerships/strategic positioning, assurance of program quality and fidelity, supervision of staff, and management of day-to-day organizational functioning and operations.
