The Center for the Study of Social Policy (CSSP) is a national, nonprofit, public policy, research, and technical assistance organization headquartered in Washington, DC, with offices in New York City and Los Angeles. CSSP works to achieve a racially, socially, and economically just society in which all children, youth, and families thrive.
CSSP strives to accomplish its mission by developing and advancing effective public policy; helping to transform public systems to be more preventive, results-oriented, accountable and caring; and supporting local leaders to create the community opportunities, supports, services and environments in which all children and families can thrive. CSSP works in partnership with other national organizations, foundations and governmental and community leaders to test new ideas and approaches, provide technical assistance, generate new evidence and support networks of innovators. All of our work reflects a long-standing organizational commitment to equity and social justice.
CSSP seeks a Policy Analyst/Senior Policy Analyst (depending on experience) in our DC office (working virtually until after the pandemic) to support our public policy work in multiple areas, including supporting our work providing technical assistance to states and counties implementing legislation and state/local efforts related to building and enhancing a prevention continuum and the transformation of child welfare.
