Position Description

Citizens’ Committee for Children of New York (CCC) is a nonprofit and nonpartisan child advocacy organization whose mission is to ensure that every New York child is healthy, housed, educated, and safe. CCC is a recognized expert in advocating for child and family policies related to child welfare and juvenile justice; health and mental health; housing and homelessness; early childhood education, education, and after-school programs; as well as financial stability and healthy, affordable food. A key part of CCC’s advocacy work involves budgetary analysis, which our policy staff releases thorough summaries of preliminary, executive, and adopted budgets, as these relate to child well-being issues and our advocacy priorities. The Policy & Budget Analyst will expand upon this budgetary analysis by developing a variety of analytical and visualization tools that will help illustrate spending. The analyst’s primary goal will be to educate, engage, and mobilize New Yorkers, and build a groundswell of public support for budgetary allocations that prioritize child and family well-being.
