Kids First Chicago is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that works to ensure that every child in Chicago has access to a high-quality public education regardless of race, background, or income. We believe that no family should have to sacrifice academics due to constraints on personal resources, information, or transportation. Therefore, we help families find and enroll in high-quality public schools that meet the needs of the student and parents.
We also believe that the current dialogue around education issues in Chicago is too divisive and politicized, and does not always focus on the best interests of our children. When real Chicago parents raise their voices, we can improve equality of access to educational opportunities across the city.
The Community Engagement Coordinator will be responsible for creating relationships within designated community areas of the city and building our grassroots base of partners and supporters, including parents, school operators, community-based organizations, and policymakers. The Community Engagement Coordinator will be held to high expectations of performance with weekly and monthly goals for various outreach and enrollment activities including but not limited to one-on-ones, community meetings, school presentations, and enrollment workshops.
