Think of Us (TOU) operates as an R+D lab for child welfare. We take on strategic - and opportunistic - projects with the goal of causing “good trouble” and ultimately, driving concrete, structural changes in policy, practice, resource flows, power dynamics, relationships and mental models.
Our ultimate goal is to build proximity so that those with Lived Experience in child welfare (former foster youth and those surrounding them) are fully integrated into every level and every decision of the system, ensuring everyone touched by child welfare has the conditions they need to Heal, Develop and Thrive.
We work across the ecosystem of current and former foster youth, child welfare workers, philanthropists and policymakers to Spark, Support and Drive to change the power dynamics to systematically center those with lived experience in child welfare.
Think of Us is doing revolutionary work, and we need your help sharing our story with a broad audience – those in the child welfare space, potential supporters, people with little context of why we matter, and beyond.
You’d join us and face a nearly blank canvas: our social media, website, newsletter, press releases and beyond need a consistent strategy, thoughtful execution, and metrics for success. To be successful, you’d need to be excellent at quickly auditing our existing work, building a comms strategy from scratch, executing against your plan, and analyzing + reporting success. Your approach must be highly collaborative, so your work aligns with organizational goals and brands, creative, so we’re showing up in the world in a new and engaging way, and metrics-driven, so you’re able to clearly demonstrate your impact. Depending on experience, you may also manage our awesome copywriter and a future email marketer.
We’re proud of our dynamic and sometimes chaotic culture – it means we’re ready to meet challenges and opportunities as they emerge. You must be comfortable operating effectively even when priorities are shifting, tasks are ambiguous, and many strong perspectives are existing in the same room at once.
While much of our team is remote, our strong preference is that this person is based in DC, where our CEO works from. This is not a requirement.
Salary range of $70,000-$80,000 dependent on experience of delivering results.
