Jacqueline C. Glaster
National Program Advisor
Jacqueline Glaster has dedicated her career to working for Public Benefit Corporations (nonprofit & public organizations) in positions including Teacher, Executive Director (CEO), Executive Coach and Consultant.
After teaching on a secondary and college level for several years, she became the Chief Executive Officer of the Boys & Girls Club of the Peninsula (BGCP) in Silicon Valley. Her leadership took this small local nonprofit from a struggling under-funded organization, to a multi-million dollar operation with several locations in Menlo Park, E. Palo Alto and Redwood City, CA.
Early in her career as CEO of BGCP, Jacque became closely acquainted with former Provost of Stanford University and US Secretary of State, Dr. Condoleezza Rice and her family. She facilitated a merger between her local Boys & Girls Club organization and the newly formed youth academic and arts program called The Center For A New Generation (CNG) founded by Dr. Rice, Susan Ford-Dorsey and other local leaders and philanthropists. Glaster urged Dr. Rice and other CNG leadership to become board members of the combined organization. She then led the newly organized board through a multi-million-dollar capital campaign to build a modern, state-of-the-art BGCP site in a low-income community near Stanford University. She also used these capital campaign funds to completely rebuild the original BGCP site and refurbish another one of their clubs into beautiful new facilities providing top-rated, after-school educational support and recreational programs. The new facilities of the combined Boys & Girls Clubs and CNG greatly enhance the academic, arts and recreational services they provide and have been enthusiastically welcomed by the children, parents, schools and the broader community.
Prior to joining The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Peninsula, Jacque was a Special Programs Consultant for the Peninsula Community Foundation (now Santa Clara Community Foundation) and Sequoia Unified School District. Her programs were very successful in providing follow-up as well as corrective support for suspended students with academic and behavioral challenges by transitioning them back into their comprehensive school environments. During her teaching career she also co-developed, wrote and taught a pilot ESL (English as a Second Language) program, which was later adopted as a model for the State of California. In addition, she worked as a Master teacher in the School of Education at Stanford University for the acclaimed Secondary Teachers Education Program (STEP).
Glaster received her Master’s Degree in Education from Stanford University and has two Bachelor’s Degrees from the University of California, Berkeley. She also received a certification from Harvard University’s School of Business in Strategic Perspectives in Nonprofit Management.
Jacque has been a member of several Boards of Directors including The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Peninsula, The Center for Excellence in Non Profits, Council of Nonprofits, The Community Network for Youth Development, The Boys & Girls Clubs of America National Human Resource Committee and past Administrative Conference Planning Committees. She was inducted as a member of the National Boys & Girls Clubs of America Professional Association on the Executive level.
