Overview

Fairplay, formerly known as Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood (CCFC), educates the public about commercialism’s impact on kids’ wellbeing and advocates for the end of child-targeted marketing. Our work routinely makes headlines around the world, most recently for campaigns holding Facebook and YouTube accountable for their practices which impact children, and calling out the potential harms of a proposed Instagram for kids. Our advocacy has led corporations such as Google, Mattel, Disney, and Nickelodeon to change their marketing practices. We are also the home of the Screen Time Action Network, a collaborative group of family professionals and practitioners working to reduce kids’ screen time. Fairplay hosts the annual global event, Screen-Free Week.  Fairplay is a fiscally sponsored project of TSNE (www.tsne.org). 

Responsibilities

Screen-Free Week is an annual celebration that takes place the first week of May in homes, schools, and communities throughout the world. Participants pledge to spend a week without entertainment screens and instead enjoy offline time with family and friends – reading, playing, exploring, gardening, hiking, crafting, cooking, and more. Prior to the pandemic, over 150,000 individuals celebrated, and we hope to continue our programming in Covid-safe ways this year and to restore participation as time goes on.

 

The Screen-Free Week Coordinator, a part-time, temporary position, will create more awareness for this global celebration in 2023. The Coordinator will report to the Family & Education Manager at Fairplay (host of Screen-Free Week), and can be based remotely. The Coordinator is expected to work 15 hours a week, beginning in early January 2023 and continuing through at least May 31, 2023.
