Engagement Manager

Boston, MA


One in three women and nearly one in three men experience relationship abuse in their lifetime. More than 1 in 2 transgender people will experience intimate partner violence in their lifetime. Three women a day are killed by their current or former partner in the US alone. The statistics around relationship abuse make it a public health epidemic that all of us have a stake in changing. Data and Statistics

Started out of a relationship violence tragedy – the death of Yeardley Love in 2010 – The One Love Foundation is the national leader in educating young people ages 11+ about relationship health, educating more than 2 million young people through educational workshops both in-person and online. Through film-based workshops and peer-to-peer discussions, One Love addresses the differences between healthy and unhealthy relationships and the warning signs of abuse in an accessible way. One Love creates safe spaces where young people can identify and talk about the issue. Workshop participants leave equipped with the vocabulary and tools needed to act when they see unhealthy behaviors and abuse both as bystanders and in their own relationships. One Love empowers young people to improve the health of their relationships and to spread this message in their communities.

Today, One Love’s campaign is equal parts national and local in its scope. Nationally, One Love has created a mission, messaging and educational tools that standardize the language used to teach young people about healthy and unhealthy relationships. One Love’s recent Theory of Change process affirmed their commitment to serve “all youth” with an increased focus on the following: youth of color, LGBTQ+, male-identifying, those who are disabled, and whose first language is Spanish or Mandarin.

Locally, One Love works on the ground with young people, schools, youth-facing community groups and social service partners to ensure that their programs are used in a way that is right for each community. Regional teams build deep roots and authentic partnerships within a given region that can help accelerate the movement to end relationship violence. In 2017, One Love established on-the-ground teams to increase the velocity of their efforts in engagement and activation. One Love now has staff on the ground in five regions and by serving these communities full-time, One Love is amplifying a conversation about relationships that is changing and saving lives.



The Engagement Manager will execute the on the ground community education and partnership cultivation/management that are the heart and soul of One Love’s work.

One Love’s Boston Region, led by Executive Director Tara Small, is hiring an Engagement Manager to raise awareness of the importance of relationship health education across New England, support facilitators to educate young people with our evidence-based curriculum, and mobilize communities to change the statistics around relationship abuse.

The Boston Region, consisting of Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont has reached more than 100,000 young people since 2017 by engaging more than 130 public and private middle and high schools, 90 colleges and universities, and 75 community and government partners.

The ideal candidate for this role is both deeply passionate about helping young people develop healthy relationships and skilled in account management – pitching, cultivating, and renewing a diverse array of schools and organizations to use One Love’s educational tools.
