Youth Engagement

New Staff Position: Youth Coordinator

NACC’s newly-created Youth Coordinator position will develop and implement youth engagement efforts across NACC’s programs and membership network. The Youth Coordinator’s primary focus will be managing the activities, training and support for a national youth advisory board of young leaders with lived experience in the child welfare system, as they contribute to advocacy and education of legal service providers and policymakers.

NACC seeks an advocate who can exercise good judgment in a variety of situations, with strong written and verbal communication, administrative, and organizational skills, and the ability to maintain a realistic balance among multiple projects. The Youth Coordinator must have experience partnering with young people in advocacy and preferably shares lived experience with the youth leaders. Further, we are seeking a highly collaborative individual to partner with other organizations and individuals in both child welfare reform and children’s legal services.




National Youth Advisory Board

(2-year term)

Apply today to join the inaugural group of youth leaders on NACC's National Youth Advisory Board (NYAB). The NYAB is a group of young professionals, advocates and leaders who have navigated the child welfare system and contribute their expertise to advancing NACC’s mission and core strategies.

The Board will advocate for the rights of children in the child welfare system, especially the right to effective assistance of counsel. It will also educate lawyers about how to provide high-quality legal representation and use what they learn to lead change in their communities.

Board members receive advocacy training and professional development opportunities, in addition to financial stipends for time and travel, and one-on-one professional mentoring. Contact with any questions.
