Our work centers the voices of impacted youth and utilizes education, capacity building, organizing, narrative strategy, leadership development, and lobbying, among other strategies, to implement change. 


About NJCIC 

NJCIC is a state-wide legal services and policy advocacy organization dedicated to empowering young immigrants. We provide holistic, youth-centered legal representation, drive systemic change to advance immigrant rights, and build community through collaboration and education. We envision a just and equitable NJ where young immigrants can flourish and lead full, fearless lives. The Policy Director will spearhead the NJCIC’s policy efforts and chart a long-term course that builds power and resources for immigrant youth and immigrant communities in NJ.

  • Work with our youth leaders and other community members to develop an understanding of immigrant community needs and preferred policy solutions, and consistently seek out and implement ways to incorporate youth and community participation in the policy development process;
  • Build and manage relationships with coalition members,  immigrant communities, partner organizations, and state government partners, as well as national and local government decision-makers;
  • Monitor pending and new legislation in the state and federal legislatures and other developments in the state and local policy environment;
  • Lead NJCIC’s Policy Team and supervise Senior Policy Analyst and Program Associate; 
  • Participate in advocacy and grant-writing to enable the Consortium’s policy work to grow;

  • Solid understanding of immigration policy and the immigration system, with experience or a strong interest in advancing the rights of immigrant children and youth. 
  • JD, MPP, or MPA degree, or equivalent skills and knowledge gained while working in a state legislature, the U.S. Congress, an organizing role, or other advocacy setting;
  • Extensive knowledge of legislative and administrative processes, and experience analyzing and interpreting legislative and regulatory language;
