Committed to community service? Get paid to organize volunteers just like you!
Because many of you are looking for a job — or, if you’re already working, likely keeping your eyes open for a better job — we occasionally feature what we like to call Sweet Jobs, or gigs that rock for whatever reason.
This week’s pick:
Global Citizen, based in Philadelphia, works to promote community volunteering and sustained civic engagement among diverse groups, particularly young people.
In this position, you’d manage a portfolio of initiatives and programs. You’d also handle all Global Citizen online communications, including our websites, e-newsletter and social media platforms.
“Our small team does big things,” Vice President & Director of Operations Victoria Ford wrote to Brazen. “We coordinate the Greater Philadelphia MLK Day of Service — last year we had over 100,000 volunteers! The person in this role will coordinate our Signature Site, with over 4,000 volunteers. We also coordinate other community service and civic engagement events year-round; in the past year we’ve hosted both Vice President Joe Biden and Nobel Peace Prize winner Leymah Gbowee.”
To qualify, you should have 1-3 years of experience in nonprofit or community-based programming — or simply be able to show that you’ll perform as though you have that experience.
Sounds like a great opportunity, right? Here’s how to apply.
