The board of directors and staff of the Young Singers of the Palm Beaches recently welcomed Holly J. Stewart as the organization’s new executive director.
Prior to joining the Young Singers, Stewart served as chief operating officer of The Arc of Palm Beach County for more than four years, was a disability advocate, provided leadership training and infrastructure development to the nonprofit industry, and provided individual, family, group and systemic interventions to diverse populations in a variety of settings.
Stewart, a licensed clinical social worker, comes to the Young Singers with 20 years of experience advocating for the social emotional wellness of families and children, and for individuals with disabilities.
She has strived to create inclusive programs which value diversity. Her experience in grant writing and management, nonprofit leadership, and team development and training are sure to prove valuable.
“I am thrilled to join the Young Singers and assist them with their future growth,” she said. “I am so impressed by the programs they currently produce, like Choir in the Glades, and the core choir is an outstanding group of youngsters. I look forward to joining the Young Singers family and making a positive difference in more children’s lives.”
