This December New Settlement was excited to welcome our new Executive Director, Rigaud Noel, to our community! Rigaud comes to New Settlement with a strong track record in providing children, youth and families opportunities for educational and career advancement to help them succeed in school, work and life. Over the last 20 years, he has served in senior management and executive positions at various non-profits across New York City. Most recently, Rigaud served as Chief Partnership Officer at New York Edge, one of the largest after-school providers in New York State. During his tenure, he was able to secure over $6 million in new funding, establish new partnerships with schools, colleges/ universities and community based organizations, as well as successfully serve as a steering committee member with the board of directors, assisting in the completion of a three year strategic plan. We are excited to work with Rigaud as we look to forge new partnerships, broaden our advocacy efforts, enhance our services and increase our support to families in the Mt. Eden community.
