Description for Outreach and Communications Coordinator
The Tyler Clementi Foundation (TCF) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded by the Clementi family to prevent bullying through inclusion, an assertion of dignity, and acceptance, to honor the memory of Tyler: a son, a brother, and a friend. Our mission is to end online and offline bullying in schools, workplaces, and faith communities.
In 2010, Tyler’s death became a global news story, highlighting the impact and consequences of bullying, harassment, and humiliation, while sparking a dialogue among parents, teachers, and students across the country. Tyler’s story also linked to broader issues affecting youth and families such as LGBTQ inequality, safety in schools, youth in crisis, higher education support systems, and cyberbullying.
In 2011, The Tyler Clementi Foundation was born out of the urgent need to address the bullying challenges facing vulnerable populations, especially LGBTQ and other victims of hostile social environments. Through programs such as #Day1 – a free, scalable, direct-action program that empowers individuals and groups to take a stand against cruelty, bullying, harassment, and humiliation – the Foundation encourages leadership to create safe spaces where individuals can stand up to bullying and embrace diversity.

The Tyler Clementi Foundation is seeking a critical thinker and skilled communicator who understands the importance of Tyler’s story and the lifesaving work of the foundation’s programs to build a culture of kindness, respect, and compassion. The ideal candidate will be able to develop relationships, promote and expand the reach of our programs, create and curate content on the Tyler Clementi website and social media platforms, and will be able to facilitate and nurture collaboration among diverse communities and organizations to end bullying in all its forms.
The Outreach and Communications Coordinator will report directly to the CEO of the Tyler Clementi Foundation.
