Patrick D’Amelio "is president and CEO of Alliance for Education, an independent nonprofit organization that seeks to advance academic achievement for all students in Seattle Public Schools. In his position, Patrick carries out a passion that has spanned his career: helping nonprofit organizations, and the children they support, reach their highest potential.
"Prior to joining the Alliance, Patrick spent four years as president and CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of King and Pierce Counties, an organization that matches adults with children for one-to-one mentoring. Under his leadership, the 80-person agency and its 2,500-person volunteer corps implemented new ways to reach the community’s most at-risk youth. Patrick also led the agency in growing revenues to keep pace with its fast growth.
"Before leading Big Brothers Big Sisters, Patrick served at the Catholic Youth Organization where he held positions of increasing responsibility over nine years, culminating in the position of executive director. As CYO’s director, he led the agency during a period of growth and oversaw programming for more than 15,000 youths each year participating in athletic programs, summer camps, and year-round educational programs.
"Patrick traces his experience in building teams to his time spent in human resources at The Washington Post Company. While there he served as an intermediary between employees and managers on matters of conflict and recruited senior-level job candidates. Patrick’s educational background and professional associations reflect his leadership experience in nonprofit work. He has participated in nonprofit management training at Harvard Business School and relief work in Rwanda with CRS, and is a member of Executive Alliance, a group of nonprofit executives based in Seattle. Patrick holds a B.A. degree in nonprofit leadership from Evergreen State College."
