The student-led movement to end mass atrocities.

STAND France Team Openings / Des Postes du CD de STAND France

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.

Dès le début, STAND a été dirigé par les étudiants, non seulement au niveau du campus, mais aussi au niveau national. STAND offre deux types de postes de direction nationale: les postes du Comité de Direction (CD) et les postes du Groupe de Travail. Le Comité de Direction est responsable de développer des campagnes nationales de STAND, de créer de notre marque et de notre messagerie publique, et de la coordination à la base. Les membres du Groupe de Travail travaillent avec le Comité de Direction pour développer des ressources pour nos membres de base, aider à l’analyse des politiques et assister à des fonctions quotidiennes cruciales.

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 a Campaigns Co-Coordinator; you do need to be creative, flexible, and open to crazy-sounding ideas.
