About Young Invincibles:
Young Invincibles (“YI”) is a non-profit, non-partisan advocacy organization working to expand economic opportunity for young people ages 18 to 34 and to amplify their voices in the national political conversation and policy arena. Founded by and for young adults in the summer of 2009 during the debate over health care reform, YI has quickly grown into a leading voice for young people on the issues of healthcare, higher education, pathways to jobs/workforce and civic engagement. The organization has achieved major successes in areas ranging from the regulation of college health plans to Pell grants and has successfully engaged hundreds of thousands of young adults online through a network of over 100 partner organizations. Our regional offices (California, Colorado, Illinois, New York, and Texas) have increased grant aid for low-income college students, expanded funding for community colleges, and ensured undocumented students can access in-state tuition.
Young Invincibles (YI), the national research and advocacy group working to advance economic opportunity for young adults, seeks a Content Strategy Manager to spearhead content strategy across issue areas and campaigns. This position will support the Communications team in writing, editing, and producing digital content for YI’s online properties and social media platforms. In particular, this position will increase our capacity to create compelling consumer education content to help young adults navigate difficult subjects like understanding health coverage, managing student loans, and exploring different career pathways.
This is a new position that reflects the organizational strategy identified in YI’s three-year strategic roadmap, and its focus on expanding, deepening and modernizing the organization’s consumer education work and ability to connect with more young people online via content.
