Freedom Summer (virtual) (June 29, 2020 - August 21, 2020)
Youth and young adults, ages 12-25, who identify as Black or African American, are invited to join our Freedom Summer Organizing School. Participants will engage in digital organizing, political education, and electoral justice learning and action. Freedom Summer works to ensure that young people are at the table to influence decisions affecting their lives right now. Participants will receive a stipend.
AmeriCorps VISTA (August 2020 - August 2021)
The position will help us to improve data collection and management (bonus if familiar with Results Based Accountability) in our work and in partnerships/coalitions, and to make sure youth organizing for racial equity informs our coalition work.
This is a full-time, year-long position. VISTAs receive a modest living allowance, health care coverage, training, and travel expenses. VISTAs also may defer student loan repayment while they serve, and some may be eligible for child care benefits.
