Senior Associate, Government Partnerships & Policy

At REDF, we’re building an economy that works. For everyone.

We discover and back social entrepreneurs across the United States that employ people striving to overcome employment barriers like homelessness or incarceration.  

These mission-driven businesses, called employment social enterprises, exist because they see untapped talent in their communities for the strengths they hold, not the barriers they’ve faced. 

That’s why REDF invests in their businesses, so we can help push their impact further, faster. We pair our grantmaking with capacity-building support, create space for employment social enterprise leaders to learn together, and sponsor state and federal policies that help shift perspectives. Because we believe that our economy works best when it works for everyone.

Since 1997, REDF has invested in 238 social enterprises in 33 states and DC, helping over 84,000 people create a future where they can flourish.


The REDF LA:RISE team is hiring for the role of Senior Associate. This role will serve as the lead project manager for the LA:RISE Youth Academy program—a program focused on improving housing, education and workforce outcomes for unhoused youth.   The Senior Associate will serve as the Lead Relationship Manger with LA:RISE youth academy partners including Social Enterprises, Worksource Centers, and other programmatic partners in achieving individual contractor goals and program execution.

A candidate that is skilled in project management, partnership building, and enjoys being at the intersection of social impact and government will thrive in this role. Experience with youth workforce programs, social enterprises, and/or government contracts is a plus!
