CURAJOY

Image_202111110843

The Asian American population is the one of fastest-growing ethnic groups in the U.S. but they are the least likely to seek any type of mental health services. Studies have found a cultural stigma within the Asian community that associates mental health needs with a disability, which deters families from seeking help. So w hile Asian American children may excel academically, they are at a high risk of falling behind in their social-emotional learning. Serving this often-overlooked population's social-emotional wellbeing is what curaJOY is all about, and you can help us by putting your grant writing skills to use.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Conduct the necessary research to identify government, foundation, and corporate grant opportunities that cureFUN is qualified to receive.

  • Responsible for researching, writing and submitting grant proposals to government, foundation, and corporate sources.

  • Write, manage, and follow up on grant applications, and comply with all grant reporting as required by donors.

Qualifications:

  • Passionate about children’s emotional wellbeing and social-emotional learning, especially within the multicultural and Asian communities

  • Prior experience in grant writing and/or fundraising is beneficial, but not necessary.

  • Strong writing and problem-solving skills

  • Knowledge of or ability to learn the grant writing process

  • Self-motivated and able to seek new funding opportunities

  • Understanding of Asian cultures or languages would be helpful



About Us

curaJOY advances children’s social and emotional wellbeing through evidence-based programs that are personalized, interactive and virtual. We team up with clinical psychologists, school counselors, behavior therapists, speech therapists, and educators in both the United States and Asia to develop outreach programs in English and Mandarin Chinese, and we plan to make our programs available in other languages. Many cultures have additional barriers to care and ingrained cultural stigmas against psychotherapy and the mental health fields. Rather than confronting communities’ existing beliefs and biases, we re-frame the purpose and benefits of social-emotional learning to fit into their value systems and technology habits in a gamified format that people readily embrace. Our mission is to make proven therapeutic tools fun, easily accessible, and widely adopted.

Mission Statement

curaJOY advances multicultural children’s social and emotional wellbeing through interactive, evidence-based programs. How we feel about ourselves, interact with others, and overcome obstacles in life makes an enormous difference in our ability to be happy and to succeed. We develop outreach programs in English and Mandarin Chinese, and plan to make our programs available in other languages. Our social-emotional wellbeing programs reach today’s youth whenever and wherever they are. Through our work, children and their entire families learn emotional intelligence skills through doing, making thinking well, feeling good, and thriving for life possible.

Description

Our outreach programs engage not only the participating children but their entire families, utilize artificial intelligence to adjust the content, omnichannel messaging and social media to reach today’s youth where they are at, and crowdfunding to incentivize positive behaviors. Many cultures have additional barriers to care and ingrained cultural stigmas against psychotherapy and the mental health fields. Rather than confronting communities’ existing beliefs and biases, we re-frame the purpose and benefits of social-emotional learning to fit into their value systems and technology habits in a gamified format that people readily embrace.
