Founded in 1982, CWEE fosters personal and professional transformation for low-income families through confidence building, customized skills training, and career advancement.

SUMMARY OF POSITION:

This position builds upon CWEE's legacy as a local leader in anti-poverty advocacy. This position is part of CWEE's Training and Education Team, which provides daily ongoing instruction to CWEE participants, but also works collaboratively across the agency. The responsibilities of the Advocacy Coordinator are two-fold. First, this position provides leadership training for CWEE participants and creates meaningful opportunities for CWEE participants to practice and develop their leadership skills. Second, this position coordinates CWEE's nonpartisan civic engagement and policy advocacy initiatives, focusing on creating more equitable laws to expand opportunities and improve outcomes for CWEE participants. Ultimately the purpose of the Advocacy Coordinator is to elevate the voices and experiences of CWEE participants to promote greater understanding of the realities of poverty and to enact systems-level change.
