About Project Guardianship
Project Guardianship (PG) provides guardianship services for older adults and people with disabilities in New York who have been determined by a judicial proceeding to need help making decisions and have no family or friends able to assist them. PG’s team approach employs attorneys, case managers, and finance associates to provide clients with services that allow them to be as independent and in the least restrictive setting as possible. Since 2005, PG has served hundreds of New Yorkers and has become a leading voice in a national, interdisciplinary effort to re-envision and strengthen guardianship policy.
PG’s strategic communications goals are to 1) raise awareness of a population that is aging alone and without resources, 2) educate lawmakers about the decision-making support needs of this population, and 3) change perceptions about our society’s duty to ensure everyone – regardless of age, ability, wealth, and social connections – has access to decision-making supports.
Project Guardianship (PG) seeks a Communications Associate (CA) to work collaboratively with PG staff to raise the profile of PG and advance its mission and goals. The CA will create messaging and content for distribution through a wide variety of channels, including but not limited to social media, website, print materials, earned media, and direct marketing and outreach. The CA will ensure a reframing aging lens is applied to all PG communications and materials. Reporting to the Director of Policy and Advocacy, the CA will work closely with staff in a remote team environment.
Salary range of $40,000-$50,000 commensurate with experience, plus excellent benefits. Please indicate your salary requirement in your cover letter.
