New Nat’l Foster Youth Institute Looking for Executive Director

The National Foster Youth Institute, a new venture with support from Casey Family Programs and the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, has begun its search for a founding executive director.

By connecting policy makers with foster youth and families through innovative programs and policy briefings, the National Foster Youth Institute aims to reform and strengthen the child welfare system and drastically improve outcomes for foster youth, with a focus on family permanency, well-being and career readiness.

The executive director will be based in Washington, D.C., with an office, staff and programming in Los Angeles, with an additional program in New York City. The plan is for NFYI to emerge as a standalone nonprofit after a year under the auspices of the Los Angeles-based Community Partners.

A board of directors has already been established:

The institute’s leader will “develop knowledge of the Institute’s vision” and “successfully develop the core programs to achieve the Institute’s goals,” according to a statement circulating about the job.

Interested applicants should send a resume, cover letter, and professional references to:
