WHAT WE DO
We advocate for the development and implementation of data-driven public policies that improve children’s well-being in health, education, early childhood, and family economic prosperity.
As the leading voice for Colorado’s children at the state Capitol and in communities across the state, the Children’s Campaign has been at the forefront of hundreds of policy wins for kids. We’ve helped establish the Colorado Option, the Colorado Preschool Program, Child Health Plan Plus, the Great Teachers and Leaders Law, the new state Department of Early Childhood, and numerous other laws and programs.
The Children’s Campaign seeks a creative and skilled Communications Manager to join our team. The Communications Manager’s work will focus on telling the story of the Children’s Campaign and helping Coloradans understand and act on the issues that are affecting kids and families in our state. The Communications Manager is responsible for developing and managing content and campaigns that advance our mission, engage and expand our audience, and support our organization’s commitment to equity. The Communications Manager works collaboratively with Children’s Campaign team members to amplify and ensure the quality of research, policy, development, and advocacy projects. The Communications Manager is a talented writer and editor who uses innovative tools and strategies to convey what is most important about data, research, and policies to target audiences. This position reports to the Communications Director.
This is an exciting time to join the Children’s Campaign. As the organization approaches its 40th anniversary, our team is committed to building a Colorado that meets the needs of all kids and families. We use research, policy, and advocacy to drive change and improve our collective understanding of child & family health, youth success, early childhood, and family economic prosperity.
