The National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR) seeks a highly skilled, dedicated, and experienced Senior Youth Policy Counsel with 7-10 years of relevant experience. The Senior Youth Policy Counsel will develop and implement legal strategies to promote the health and well-being of LGBTQ youth through community education, strategic collaboration, and public policy advocacy nationally. The work will be focused on developing alternatives to the youth justice and child welfare systems that are responsive to the needs and healthy development of LGBTQ youth. The Senior Youth Policy Counsel will also coordinate with the Born Perfect team to eliminate conversion therapy, the Transgender Youth Project Director, the Family Law team to oppose unwarranted regulation of LGBTQ families targeted by the child welfare system, and the litigation team to identify legal strategies for addressing harm to LGBTQ youth. The start date for this position is January 1, 2022.
This is a full-time, exempt position. NCLR is based in San Francisco, CA, but any remote location within the U.S. will be considered. Currently nearly all staff are working from home exclusively, but we hope to reopen our office in San Francisco in early 2022.
