Job Openings

We currently have one permanent job opening. We also have internship positions available.


Development Associate

We currently seek a Development Associate to be a member of the Development team. They will have the opportunity to work collaboratively across teams within and outside the organization in order to build sustainable funding for Youth ALIVE!’s life-saving work in violence prevention, intervention and healing. This role will make an immediate impact on Youth ALIVE’s overall success and growth potential.

The Development Associate will support donor management systems, fundraising campaigns, and events. They will be responsible for assisting with data entry, database maintenance, relationship management, donor communication, event planning and finance support. The Development Associate will also provide exceptional strategic, organizational, and administrative support for the Development Manager, Development Team, and the fundraising committee.

This is an exciting opportunity for an early-career professional who is looking to grow their skills in support of an organization that has doubled in size over the last seven years, as the national and local political situation has led to greater interest in homegrown, non-law enforcement solutions to turn the tide of generational gun violence in Oakland. The position is a growth opportunity for a professional looking to leverage their data skills and gain fundraising experience to grow into a rewarding nonprofit career.
