Children's Action Alliance (CAA) seeks an exceptional Chief Executive Officer (CEO) who is committed to promoting the well-being of Arizona's children and families through research, education, and advocacy efforts. This position begins in mid-June 2019.

 

The Organization

Founded in 1988, CAA is an independent voice for Arizona children at the state capitol and in the state of Arizona. CAA works to improve children's health, education, and security through information and action.

 

Each year, CAA pursues a policy agenda that advances its long-term strategy for improving the lives of all of Arizona's children, seeking to:

  • Shape the public conversation to expect better state budgets and policies for kids.
  • Nurture leaders and champions for kids.
  • Promote fiscal policies that facilitate children's health, education, and security.
  • Expand children's access to health care.
  • Improve the protection of abused and neglected children and empower their success.
  • Enhance community-based support for struggling youth and decrease youth incarceration.
  • Promote early education policies and practices that improve reading success by third grade.

CAA launched the Arizona Center for Economic Progress in January 2017 to create initiatives and partnerships beyond children's issues. The Center advances thoughtful analysis and effective economic and fiscal policy solutions to shape a better future for every Arizonan through quality jobs, great education, and stronger communities.  The Center is integrated into the CAA organizational infrastructure and governed by CAA's Board of Directors.

Recent Accomplishments

Most recently, CAA has done the following to advance its goals:

  • Promoted improvements in state agency policy and practice to provide more financial stability, health care coverage, and opportunities for children and youth in child care and foster care.
  • Nurtured and mobilized community voices on children's issues through advocacy trainings, leadership development, and events at the capitol for specific constituencies.
  • Through the Arizona Center for Economic Progress, changed the public conversation to connect the dots between three decades of tax cuts at the state capitol and the lack of investment in Arizona priorities for education and infrastructure, blocking more than $200 million in proposed tax cuts that would have further diminished revenues.
  • Fueled the "Red for Ed" movement for investments in public education with multi-year strategic messaging campaigns, fact-based analysis and tools, partnerships, and community mobilization, compelling state lawmakers to make a $400 million investment in public schools.

CAA is governed by a 22-member Board of Directors and consists of a 14-member staff. The organization's current operational budget is approximately $2.1M. CAA's current CEO, Dana Naimark, will depart the organization in 2019 after providing 27 years of service, with the last 12 as the organization's CEO.

Assistant to Founder/Producer — MoviesMakingADifference Productions Inc. (Phoenix)

Date Posted: November 20, 2018
Position Description:

I did not check that we are confirmed for school credit, but we are a 501c3 in good standing and recognized as an AZ Charity. We are also listed as an approved Community Service Charity so I cannot imagine why we would not be approved for credit hours.

We are a very unique 501c3. We make socially conscious movies (feature films) on trafficking, child labor, chld brides in the USA and then directly aid the survivors upon whom the films shed light. As disturbing as the subject matter is, our films are heroic and inspiring. They make people want to start MakingADifference, themselves.

We need help in many areas. The film that is currently in post production will be needing promotion. At the same time we have an ever growing number of youths and families that need our help. And then we also are working on the events that raise both awareness and funding for our projects and those in need.

This position would require:

  1. Follow up phone calls, checking on survivors and following up on their situations.
  2. Updating website, www.moviesmakingadifference.org.
  3. Emailing through Constant Contact.
  4. Helping to create our Newsletter.
  5. Writing promos.
  6. Helping coordinate and organize events such as concerts, art shows, screenings, etc.
  7. Post on Instagram. (I can only manage to handle FB with my workload. That's why I need you!)
  8. We do not have our own program, but handle each survivor individually. So when we get an emergency phone call, we put our heads together and do everything we can within our means to get the individual out of harms way and then start working on them creating dreams and building a future.
  9. As a very small, volunteer based organization, there is so much room for your own ideas and creativity.
  10. Basically assisting me with whatever may arise.

We get most of our support for our AZ youth from Palm Beach, FL where we won Audience Choice for Best Feature Film a few years ago. I spend quite a bit of time there, so most of your time will be working from home. When I am here we have our committee meetings at different locations, usually around 4:00 Sundeay afternoon. They are often happy hours to be economical (not for a party, although it is always enjoyable). It would be important that you could attend those whenever possible. Of course we would pay for your check.

Thank you for considering us.

Position Qualifications:
  1. Technicologically savvy.
  2. Patient.
  3. Good writing skills.
  4. Articulate.
  5. Well organized.
  6. Problem solver.
  7. Sensitive to Addiction as many of our young survivors have become addicts and one of our main goals is to get them into treatment centers that work with us.
How to Apply:

Please send an email to MoviesMakingADifference@gmail.com after looking at our website.

Please let me know why you are interested in working with us, your availability, when you would be able to start, your resume and what you feel are your greatest strenghts and what you most enjoy doing.

Look forward to hearing from you,
