The student-led movement to end mass atrocities.

Team Openings

STANDfam

From the beginning, STAND has been student-led, not only at the campus level but also at the national level.  STAND offers two types of national leadership positions: Managing Committee positions, and Task Force positions. The Managing Committee is responsible for developing STAND’s national advocacy campaigns, crafting our public brand and messaging, and coordinating our grassroots outreach efforts. Task Force members work with the Managing Committee to develop resources for our grassroots members, assist with policy analysis, and provide support to other crucial day-to-day functions.

Campaigns Coordinator

For an advocacy organization like STAND, campaigns serve two purposes: utilizing our constituency of informed, well-trained advocates, and bringing in new members. As Campaigns Coordinator, you’ll learn how to strike that balance, and will oversee the STAND MC during campaign development. In coordination with our Advocacy Coordinator, you’ll ensure that our policy asks translate into a steady stream of action opportunities for our grassroots, from those who just joined our mailing list to those running well-established chapters. You’ll ensure that we’re consistently offering robust multi-conflict programming and consult with the STAND MC to ensure that our national campaigns are enabling us to grow the STAND constituency. For each major campaign, you’ll work with the Student Director and Staff to develop a set of measurable benchmarks and goals, an implementation timeline, a set of tasks and deadlines for other MC members, and clear monitoring and accountability mechanisms. You don’t need to be the wonkiest kid in the class to be the Campaigns Coordinator; you do need to be creative, flexible, and open to crazy-sounding ideas (or, as we like to call them, cray-deas).

Weekly time commitment: An average of 10 hours per week

Responsibilities:

  • Help the MC in developing the vision for campaigns, incorporating and assessing STAND’s niche, and constituency needs, interests, and passions
  • In coordination with SD and Staff, lead MC discussions on campaign development, create timeline(s) for implementation, and follow up with MC members to ensure follow through on assigned tasks

  • Creative thinking and a willingness to not only think outside the box, but to push others to do the same
  • Strong communication skills, which will be necessary when you’re coordinating campaigns and actions alongside other pieces of national programming
  • As you may be dealing with several campaigns at once, not to mention urgent ad-hoc actions, you’ll need to be able to keep track of lots of things at once, and be ready to call the rest of the team to action
  • Experience with STAND and familiarity with STAND and our constituency, whether through previous experience on the STAND Managing Committee, one of our task forces, or with a chapter
