Background

Mission: The Committee for Hispanic Children and Families combines education and advocacy to expand opportunities for children and families, and strengthen the voice of the Latino community.

SEARCH SUMMARY

The Committee for Hispanic Children and Families (CHCF) is a highly successful, well-respected and innovative service provider and advocacy organization with a rich history for effectively employing cultural competency to strengthen Latino families. CHCF dramatically changes life outcomes for Hispanic children and families. The organization, based in New York since its founding 32 years ago, is seeking a passionate bilingual President and CEO with a proven commitment to the Latino community who can build upon the legacy of equipping Latino families to become self-sufficient and part of the economic mainstream so they can thrive in their communities. The leader will build upon the impact of CHCF’s programs by engaging in advocacy and supporting policies to strengthen Latino communities and will possess the political savvy to advance issues that affect the community. As consistent through all of CHCF’s work, the President must value Latino families and believe in their abilities to advocate and provide for themselves. Studies and statistics show that CHCF’s innovative model combining direct support and advocacy works, and now it is time to find a leader to bring the organization to scale so that greater numbers of deserving families may benefit.

The new President and CEO will take over an organization that has developed a strong local and national reputation for high quality service and impactful advocacy reaching approximately 10,000 individuals annually. Replacing CHCF’s founder, the new President will uphold the core principle of self-sufficiency while promoting the organization’s tradition of innovation and continuous improvement.

HISTORY AND ORGANIZATION DESCRIPTION

In 1982, a group of Latino social service professionals recognized that the growing Latino community in New York City had needs that were not being met. Pooling their resources and knowledge, they founded The Committee for Hispanic Children and Families. CHCF embarked upon a two-fold mission: to be a voice for the Latino community at the local, state and national levels; and to develop programs that would address the concerns of Latino children and their families.

Since its founding, CHCF has combined education and advocacy to expand opportunities for children and families and strengthen the voice of the Latino community. Believing that the most effective way to support Latino families is by building upon their existing strengths and fostering self-sufficiency, CHCF carries out its mission by providing comprehensive services through its three divisions:

Youth Development Programs – CHCF Youth Development Programs enrich the lives of more than 1,600 children, youth and family members each year. Through grassroots service, parent involvement, cultural and linguistic competencies, individualized interventions, and dedicated staff, CHCF provides a unique and trusted community resource to address issues of chronic truancy and inadequate social services. The following are current program offerings: Drop-Out Prevention Program; Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Program; After School Programs; Family Healthy Living and Nutrition Program; and Responsible Fatherhood Program.

Early Care & Education Institute – CHCF improves the quality of early care and education by providing professional and leadership development for educators and parents. CHCF reaches approximately 8,500 educators, children and family members each year through technical assistance for parents to gain knowledge about how to secure quality childcare, and through training and providing scholarships for those interested in becoming childcare providers in early education. The following are current program offerings: Parent and Quality Child Care; Professional Development; and Professional Training Scholarships.

Policy & Advocacy Initiatives – With the aim of promoting human rights principles, social justice and the elimination of discrimination, CHCF advocates aggressively for the respect of fundamental freedom and human dignity and the wellbeing for children and families, reaching the lives of more than 10,000 people annually. Augmenting the impact of CHCF’s programs by working with legislators, advocacy groups and families, CHCF amplifies Latino voices and strengthens its communities to advocate for themselves. CHCF employs the following strategies to advance its policy agenda: Research Publication; Advocacy Workshops and Citizenship Classes; and Coalition and Partnership Building.

Headquartered in New York City’s Financial District, CHCF has a fiscally sound operating budget of over $4 million. The Board of Directors is currently made up of prominent leaders of all sectors who share a commitment to the values and vision of the organization. CHCF has a staff size greater than 80 – approximately evenly split between those in the central office and those working offsite in the schools.

Job description

JOB TITLE: Director of Development

REPORTS TO: Executive Director. Works closely with the Executive Director, the Director of Operations and Planning, and the Administrative Director.

HOURS: Full Time; requires some evening and weekend hours

JOB SUMMARY: The Director of Development is responsible for leadership, creation, and implementation of a comprehensive development plan and related strategies to reach annual and long-term fundraising goals through individual, foundation, and corporate support as well as through special event campaigns and major gifts.

ORGANIZATION OVERVIEW: Youth Communication's mission is to help teens strengthen the social, emotional, and literacy skills that contribute to school and life success, with a focus on the hardest-to-reach teens. We believe that literate, thoughtful citizens are essential to the survival of a vibrant, democratic society.

The executive director founded Youth Communication in 1980 as an intensive teen writing and publishing program. We still run that program, for about 50 teens a year. We publish those teens' stories in two magazines—for NYC public high school students and for youth in foster care. Then we provide support to educators who use those stories—from one-off trainings to year-long partnerships. We are repositioning ourselves as an organization that helps teens by helping educators become more effective at achieving their goals with hard-to-reach teens.

This organic link between our direct service teen writing program and our training program for educators is unique. The initial response to our training offerings is that building them around our true, teen-written stories makes them especially effective.

Target Audience: When we say "hard-to-reach" teens, we mean teens who are behind in school, have suffered trauma, are in foster care, have had contact with the juvenile justice system, are recent immigrants, i.e., teens who are often alienated and hard to engage in school or after school programming. Our target audience is the adults who work with those teens, including alternative school teachers, CBO staff in distressed neighborhoods, probation officers, counselors, and social workers. Our goal is to help those adults engage teens in their classes and programs and help them learn the social, emotional, and literacy skills that contribute to success in school and life.

Team: The Director of Development will work with a highly experienced and committed team, including the Executive Director, the Planning and Operations Director (who oversees workflow and strategy), the Education Director (who builds and delivers professional training), the Administrative Director (who supports fundraising efforts), and the Marketing Director. The Director of Development will also work closely with the Youth Communication Board of Directors.

Budget: Our current budget is $1.4 million, but we expect it to grow by 20% or more in the next few years as we build out our training model. As we grow, we expect that an increasing amount of our income will be fees for training, paid either directly by the agency or by a third party, such as a foundation.

See www.youthcomm.org for more information on the organization. (Note: We have not updated our website to reflect our new focus on professional development. See item 7, below.)

JOB DESCRIPTION AND SCOPE

Youth Communication is poised to offer an innovative model for supporting educators who work with the toughest teens. To do so, we need to raise the investment capital to build and test the model and market it to schools and out-of-school agencies that work with those teens. The primary job of the Director of Development will be to attract support for that work, while also obtaining support for our core direct-service writing program.

This new support is likely to come from donors who have a program investment focus, i.e., investing in the development, growth, and evaluation of our new training model, and from individuals who are excited by the idea of supporting an approach that will help educators reach the toughest teens. Here is a list of key responsibilities:

Revise and execute an annual development plan based on cultivating, stewarding, and raising funds from individuals, foundations, and corporations.
Manage relations with the board of directors. We want to maximize the support and talents of our current nine-member board and add several board members each year to increase our fundraising ability and access to key constituencies.
Plan and execute special events, designed to raise money and to cultivate potential donors and board members. (We currently host two or three events a year with about 100 guests.)
Work with the Executive Director and other staff to write proposals, cover letters, funder reports, annual reports, appeal letters, brochures, thank you notes, and other materials.
Help maintain a contact management database (donations, deadlines, and other information).
Represent and promote Youth Communication with program officers, potential donors and board members, and at workshops, conferences, seminars, and other settings.
Help develop the messaging that accurately positions our training model and that will convince foundations, individuals, and corporations to support it.
Stay informed concerning trends in training educators, youth development, and funding fields.

Qualifications/Requirements:

Strong commitment to the success of the adults who work with hard-to-reach teens—and to the success of those teens
Knowledge of the New York and national urban education and youth development funding landscapes
Excellent writing and verbal skills
Excellent social and interpersonal skills
Experience with managing special events
Experience with proposal writing and reporting
Ability to think strategically and creatively
Commitment and ability to work as part of a team
