Youth Represent is currently seeking an Executive Director!
The Board of Directors is committed to hiring a new Executive Director who can enhance the work of Youth Represent, who has a demonstrated commitment to the community we serve, and who can successfully navigate the changes in the criminal legal landscape. When our founding Executive Director announced her decision to step down, the Board of Directors named Legal Director Michael Pope to serve as Interim Executive Director, and engaged the Support Center of New York to assist with the search for a permanent replacement.
The ideal candidate possesses a deep understanding of how the criminal legal system disproportionately and intentionally harms young people of color. She/They/He is a strategic thinker and steadfast in implementing organizational priorities and is an exceptional communicator who has a strong commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. An ideal candidate would also have existing relationships with NYC community-based organizations that specialize in youth services, as well as the funders who support this work.
