YAI Seeing beyond disability.


1.)  Media Relations Manager, YAI, New York, NY


YAI is a network of agencies offering people with intellectual and developmental disabilities a comprehensive range of services across all ages. YAI empowers people with disabilities to reach their goals every day. Our enthusiastic staff of 4,000 professionals believes that everyone has a fundamental right to live, love, work, and learn. If you share our vision and want to help support people to live the fullest lives possible, YAI will be the right place for you.

The Manager is a quick thinker, an excellent writer, and an imaginative problem-solver who unearths stories of technical know-how, program and policy innovation, and human inspiration within YAI’s breadth of services, personalities, and events. Though securing interest from third-party print, digital, and broadcast media is critical, the Manager will also draft content for YAI’s website and social media properties and, together with others in the Advancement and Communications department, contribute to a repository of narratives designed to raise interest among a range of audiences, including donors, elected officials, staff, and the general public. In addition to working as a proactive storyteller, the Media Relations Manager responds to media queries, trains YAI spokespeople for interviews, and promotes YAI events through print and digital event calendars. Based at YAI’s Midtown Headquarters, this role will spend considerable time at YAI program offices throughout the region. This role reports to the Director of Communications.


Responsibilities will include:

  • Serves as YAI’s primary liaison with print, digital, and electronic media.
  • Writes and distributes press releases, feature stories, profiles, and other content that highlights YAI’s distinctive approach to seeing beyond disabilities.
  • Identifies potential news items throughout the YAI Network, uncovering details and interviewing key participants to produce quality news items to disseminate to media and through YAI’s own channels.
  • Responds to incoming media inquiries.
  • Staffs all events where outside media will be present.
  • Supports advancement and marketing goals by promoting events through calendar listings and follow-up coverage.
  • Trains staff and people YAI supports for interaction with media, securing necessary releases from participants and/or their guardians.
  • Manages contracted photo and video vendors.
  • Assists with editing as directed.
  • Contributes to social media content and strategy.
  • Other duties as assigned.


Education and Experience:

  • Bachelor’s degree is required.
  • Minimum three years’ experience in writing-intensive media relations role within a mission-driven nonprofit.
  • Experience writing in a range of formats (news briefs, feature stories, interviews, speeches, Q&As)
  • Demonstrated skill and comfort in proactively building relationships with journalists interested in human services issues.
  • Effective and compelling communication skills, both verbal and written.
  • Exceptional interpersonal relationship skills with the ability to work flexibly with leadership, peers, volunteers, and people YAI supports.
  • Awareness of regional news media, digital publications, and national outlets interested in intellectual and developmental disabilities issues.
  • Strong computer skills including Microsoft Office, database management, and CRM tools.
