STAND is the student-led movement to end genocide and mass atrocities and aims to empower individuals and communities with the tools to prevent and end genocide. Beginning in 2003 in response to the crisis in Darfur, the US-based NGO has played a huge role in the mass atrocity prevention movement globally. Now, with the support of the Aegis Trust, a UK branch is being established.
We are currently looking for a team of 12 enthusiastic and motivated students in a diverse range of roles to serve on the STAND UK Managing Committee and help establish STAND UK.
The Managing Committee is STAND’s national governing body, from organizing national campaigns and programming to running our outreach efforts on the ground. The MC is responsible for looking out for STAND’s long-term future, and making sure we’re doing all we can to work towards ending and preventing genocide and mass atrocities.
This opportunity is be ideal for those looking to gain experience in the NGO sector and develop skills in campaigning and successful advocacy, as well as leadership and communication.
