Job Summary

The National Foster Youth Institute (NFYI) is currently seeking a talented individual for the position of Development & Communications Associate. This person will play a key role in helping NFYI lift up #FosterYouthVoices, fund the impactful work we do, and reach additional youth and donors.

This position will be the key bridge between the development and communications departments, supporting fundraising efforts and taking the lead on digital communications. This position will be in close contact with departments across the organization and will connect the dots between all aspects of our work, leveraging the successes of our programs and policy teams into fundraising opportunities, and seeking opportunities to build a platform for our youth members to talk about their experiences and ideas. The ideal candidate is an excellent writer, a strong storyteller, has an eye for design, has meticulous attention to detail, and is eager to learn and master new software. An ability to juggle a variety of tasks, prioritize, and ask for help when needed is also important. 

This position is primarily virtual, but the ideal candidate lives near one of our hubs where most of our in-person activity takes place: Los Angeles or DC. Staff occasionally participate in in-person events including fundraisers, meetings with Members of Congress, conferences for our youth, and a one-week conference in DC each June.

About Us

The National Foster Youth Institute empowers current and former foster youth, their families, and communities to use their lived experiences to bring about systemic policy changes in the child welfare system nationwide. We center the voices of those who have been directly impacted by the child welfare system and work to educate local and national decision makers and the public on how we can work together to make foster care a beacon of hope for children and families.

NFYI is a virtual, bicoastal nonprofit with a diverse, passionate team of individuals who are committed to our mission and to youth development. Full-time staff are expected to work traditional hours and be available by phone, email, chat, and on-camera virtual meetings during regular business hours. Because we have staff and youth members across the country, occasional availability for West Coast meetings is ideal, as is a willingness to participate in silly ice breakers during staff meetings.
