Full-time Case Manager

Team IMPACT is a national nonprofit that provides an extended support network to children living with serious and chronic illnesses by matching them up with a local college athletic team. We believe that our program can help a child increase their confidence, optimism and sense of belonging through these relationships. Children feel like they are members of the team, contributing in ways only they can, to provide insight and inspiration to the student-athletes that cannot be found on the field or in the classroom.\

Case Managers will report to the Director of Case Management and play an integral role in the maintenance of the Team IMPACT program which includes: managing TI relationships between participating families and teams, measuring and evaluating target populations' progress towards their milestones and outcomes, as well as helping cultivate and develop the medical and athletic networks within their region. The work centers around not only establishing and maintaining active dialogues with both families and teams, but also ensuring that best practices are understood by all, and that expectations of all parties are being met. Case Managers will work to ensure the highest quality of relationship possible, in addition to implementing the graduation process to conclude the formal relationship. Case Managers will work with participating families and teams who are located throughout the United States and will primarily communicate with participants via telephone and email.

This position involves actively managing the relationships between the family and the team (the Cases”) from the initial match throughout the two-year relationship. This involves:

  • Regular dialogue with both the family and team, creating a meaningful experience for all participants from Draft Day through to Graduation;
  • Ensuring that the quality of match is maintained throughout the duration of the relationship and that the child is provided with active and consistent socialization;
  • Applying a structured 'relationship management methodology', which measures the child's improvement in the specific areas of confidence, optimism and sense of belonging. This consists of collecting both quantitative (quality of life surveys) and qualitative (anecdotal evidence from parents, medical staff, coaches, etc.) data to measure the child's growth and development;
  • Implementing the graduation process once the child is ready to transition into an ‘alumnus' of the program;
  • Gaining feedback on ideas about improving the experience, in addition to getting referrals of other families and team that would be interested in participating;
  • Updating and maintaining the database (Salesforce)/content management systems.

As incoming CM, you will possess many, though perhaps not all, of the following characteristics and qualifications:

A Master's degree in Social Work (MSW) or a Child Life certification (CCLS)

Please email a resume and thoughtful cover letter, outlining how your skills and experience meet the qualifications of the position and stating how you heard about this opportunity, in Word or PDF format, to
