The National Alliance for Children and Youth (NACY) is a national charitable organization that brings organizations together in a collaborative network dedicated to advocating public policy and supporting organizations in the development of training and services that enhance the wellbeing of children and youth in Canada.
The organization has recently been undergoing a significant revitalization fuelled in part by the continued uncertainty surrounding the impacts of the global pandemic on our younger population and UNICEF’s Report Card 16 (2020), ranking Canada 30th/38 of the world’s richest countries in child wellbeing, including mental wellbeing, physical health, and academic and social skills.
We are looking for a passionate champion for children and youth organizations that will lead efforts to rebuild and enhance sector networks, professional development opportunities, and strengthen advocacy and government relations efforts to advance public policy priorities at the national level.
Reporting to the Board of Directors, the Executive Director is the principal spokesperson for NACY to members, stakeholders, funders, government partners, and children and youth in our communities. Working responsively and collaboratively with the Board of Directors, this Executive Director will build the foundation for organizational growth and long-term sustainability for both NACY and the broader children and youth sector in the post-pandemic era.
NACY staff are working remotely for the foreseeable future due to the pandemic. The incumbent can be located anywhere within Canada.
