Strategic Initiatives and Planning Associate

BCYF is committed to ensure that our children and youth are healthy, ready to succeed in school, and live in stable, safe, and supportive families and communities. We do more than grantmaking, we collaborate with grassroots organizations and community leaders to create new opportunities for the city’s young people to learn, thrive and succeed. BCYF awards grants to organizations that provide programs to thousands of Baltimore's young people -- from academic support and science exploration to dance and photography. BCYF is committed to authentic community engagement, and our strategy and grant decisions are shaped and led by Baltimore community members and youth leaders. Our core values of Racial Equity, Intergenerational Leadership, Community Ownership, and Collective Decision-Making direct our partnerships with organizations that share our Black liberation worldview. Through our strategic investments, we strive to resource a future where children and youth throughout the city enjoy access to high-caliber enrichment and learning opportunities, and children and youth programs have the resources they need to equitably serve all our young people.



BCYF seeks to hire a motivated Strategic Initiatives and Planning Associate to plan and execute events and to collaborate on exciting new initiatives and special projects, with the goal of deepening BCYF’s impact and service to the Baltimore community. 


The Strategic Initiatives and Planning Associate will plan and execute both internal and external events for the organization. The Associate will focus on human values and practice adaptability when approaching external events, initiatives, and partnerships to build a sense of connection between BCYF, the Baltimore community, the philanthropic community, and stakeholders. The Associate will work across BCYF’s programs to collaboratively develop, lead and implement special projects; fully manage large long term projects; build relationships with and listen to grantees and community members to identify new initiatives BCYF can implement to further support Baltimore’s Black and Brown youth; and build and maintain an electronic database for events, vendors, and attendees.
