Jai Phillips manages and implements CCF’s public-private partnership with the Los Angeles County Probation Department, along with the Foundation’s youth development and boys and men of color portfolios, in order to advance CCF’s vision and goals and provide youth and families with culturally-responsive, asset-based, high-quality resources and opportunities that create successful pathways to adulthood.

Previously, Phillips managed CCF’s BLOOM (Building a Lifetime of Options and Opportunities for Men) initiative, an effort to redirect South Los Angeles’ justice-impacted Black male youth toward improved educational and employment opportunities. The BLOOM Alliance now stands firmly as a community resource to serve youth throughout L.A. County.

A lifelong South Los Angeles resident with a proven history of community involvement, Phillips is committed to changing the trajectory of children and youth through a comprehensive approach that addresses their multifaceted needs. Prior to joining CCF, he served as regional development officer for Children’s Defense Fund-California, where he led the organization’s strategies for developing relationships and partnerships to achieve fundraising goals. He also served for nine years as development and operations manager for the Jackie Robinson Foundation, responsible for providing scholarships, mentoring and leadership opportunities for underserved youth.

Phillips studied at Pitzer College in Claremont, CA, obtaining a bachelor’s degree in both psychology and Black studies.
