Program & Communications Associate (CRIF)

The Children’s Rights Innovation Fund supports efforts to reinvigorate and transform the global children’s rights field by putting justice at the center.

As a dynamic funder learning community, we promote learning, innovation, and collaboration to address the deepest root causes of children’s vulnerability—and drive new investments in the power of youth activists, movements, and their allies. 

Together we will expand our collective imagination, experiment with new possibilities, and share what we are learning, all in service of a more just world for every child.

Beginning with a focus on racism, anti-Blackness, colonialism, and neo-colonialism, CRIF will grow and expand in collaboration with our partners to address additional root causes, including deep-seated adultism, that prevent millions of the most marginalized children from realizing their rights all around the world.

In a global moment that demands new courage and action, CRIF is an open invitation for funders to listen deeply to youth activists and allies, invest in their leadership and power, and deliver new resources and momentum toward lasting, systemic change.


CRIF seeks a dynamic, flexible and collaborative Program & Communications (P&C) Associate, comfortable working remotely for a startup organization.  The Program & Communications Associate will work most closely with the Executive Director to support the administrative and operations of this new global children’s rights fund; as well as implement the organization’s communications strategy.  The role holds a variety of responsibilities related to project management, strategic planning, and donor education.  The ideal candidate will be a detail-oriented, organized, problem solver who is a self-starter and remains calm and gracious in new and uncertain situations. They will also feel comfortable collaborating with people of all ages  and backgrounds, and across different regions of the world. This position is an excellent opportunity for someone looking to strengthen their program management and communications skills, as well as learn from dynamic teams of experts in philanthropy, feminist social movements, youth organizing and children’s rights.
