Gen Justice, an award-winning advocacy organization for abandoned and abused children, is expanding and seeks a dynamic, proven chief fundraising officer.

 

The chief fundraising officer will lead, create, and execute a fundraising plan for Gen Justice that will increase annual revenue to $5 million by 2023.

The public-facing working title for this position is Chief Charitable Gift Adviser for Donors.

Foster care reform analyst/Public policy analyst - apply today

Gen Justice, an award-winning advocacy organization for abandoned and abused children, seeks an experienced and creative policy analyst to research and develop a list of actions, reforms and solutions to improve graduation rates and employment prospects for foster youth at risk of aging out. 

 

This is a contract, project-based position with the possibility of a permanent position. The work can be done remotely or in person at Gen Justice headquarters.  

 

The first aspect of the project is to identify barriers to and/or ways to create an academic home and continuity of learning program for foster kids. Consider Johnny - Johnny spent 14 years in the Arizona foster care system and was moved 47 times. By age 17, he had 2 high school credits and no marketable skills. How can state policy improve and change to create a path to educational success for kids like him?  

 

The second aspect of the project is to identify barriers to/or develop a wraparound program that would improve employment opportunities for these young adults. We draw inspiration from Safeway, a company that has become a national leader in employing 10,000+ adults with disabilities, giving thousands of individuals with special needs a career and a means to live independently. We believe that foster youth with the right opportunities and support can overcome the odds.   

 

The right candidate will be an adept, creative problem solver. The right candidate will have a track record of having developed effective public policy reforms. Policy experience in the child welfare or education arenas is helpful, but not required.  

 

To apply, please submit a cover letter of application, a one-page resume, and a work sample to careers@genjustice.org.
