Careers at Voices

Voices for Georgia’s Children (www.georgiavoices.org) is celebrating 15 years as an independent non-profit organization that seeks to ensure all children to be safe, healthy, educated, connected to family and community, and prepared to be productive and responsible citizens. As advocates for the next generation, our primary functions are education and research, communication, coalition building, and public and legislative advocacy. We believe that sound, research-based public policy provides the basis for adequate investment, effective systems, and productive programs that will lead to good outcomes for children. To achieve policy change we provide elected officials, agency and community leaders with the information, experience, and constituent voice that support sound decisions about children. Voices plays a key role in several statewide coalitions, state leadership initiatives, and fosters a team environment where most projects engage multiple members of the staff to achieve excellence.
