Stand for Children – a leading voice for students – seeks a driven and motivated individual to create and execute city and state-level campaign strategies in Indiana through November.
Stand for Children is a powerful voice for students. Our mission is to ensure that all children, regardless of their background, graduate from high school prepared for, and with access to, a college education. To date, Stand for Children’s eleven state affiliates (AZ, CO, IL, IN, LA, MA, OK, OR, TN, TX, and WA) have impacted the lives of millions of children through their state and district level work.
The Stand for Children family consists of two separate organizations—Stand for Children, a grassroots membership lobby for children exempt under section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code, and Stand for Children Leadership Center, a leadership development organization exempt under section 501(c)(3)
Stand for Children and the Stand for Children Leadership Center work together to:
Separately, Stand for Children works to elect courageous leaders who will stand up for our priorities.
We stand for achievement by all students, through quality early childhood education, effective, empowered and supported teachers and principals, engaged families with high expectations, and other strategies that provide students the tailored instruction and support they need to graduate high school ready for college.
We stand for access to high quality schools for all students, especially students in poverty, students of color, and students learning English. To expand access to all students, we advocate for effective educational leadership at all levels, sufficient and effectively spent school funding, and clear, accurate information about how schools are performing for parents, educators, and the community.
We believe all children deserve an equal opportunity to succeed in life. Education is the key that unlocks the door to success, but far too many children, through no fault of their own, aren’t getting the education they need to make it in life. We are passionately committed to righting this wrong.
Stand for Children seeks a driven, innovative, self-motivated individual as the Indiana Campaign Manager. This individual will work closely with the Indiana Executive Director, Government Affairs Director, and City Director to implement member mobilization and campaign strategies aimed at winning city and state electoral and legislative campaigns. The Indiana Campaign Manager will work towards these wins by mobilizing the Indiana statewide membership base and engaging new members in order to elect education reform-minded champions into local and state offices. The Indiana Campaign Manager will work in close collaboration with the state staff members of this established yet fast-growing Stand for Children affiliate.
The Indiana Campaign Manager will be joining a national team of professionals committed to improving children’s lives. Stand for Children’s managers are empowering, entrepreneurial leaders who are committed to providing outstanding supervision in order for staff to develop as professionals and grow within the organization.
Competitive salary, commensurate with experience. This position is temporary and will last through the duration of the current campaign. Stand for Children and Stand for Children Leadership Center are equal opportunity employers and candidates of color are strongly encouraged to apply.
