ORGANIZATION: Idealist.org

Recruiting Organization: STAND: The Student-Led Movement to End Mass Atrocities

The Managing Committee (MC) leads all aspects of the STAND movement and organization. Comprised of STAND’s highest-level activists, the MC oversees Action Committees, develops national campaigns and programming, and mobilizes our grassroots network. The MC is responsible for looking out for STAND’s long-term future, and making sure we’re effectively working toward our mission to end and prevent genocide and mass atrocities. The MC works as a remote team from across the United States.

MC members vary in their skills and interests. We encourage you to highlight in your application your leadership experiences, skills and talents, and any STAND focus issues or regions that you are most interested in. Some MC members will be facilitating Action Committees, and others will be working to develop communications, policy, fundraising, grassroots outreach, and educational materials. In either type of role, you will be responsible for communicating daily with other MC and Action Committee members via Slack (our team communication platform), attending weekly team calls, regular Action Committee calls, and creating educational and campaign materials. Most MC members will have two roles and share responsibility for an AC or program area with one other team member. The (co-)leads are in charge of their program area(s), with some support from outside advisors, partners, and one STAND staff member. MC positions require a strong sense of initiative and responsibility.

Time Commitment: Approximately 10 hours per week for the duration of the 2022-2023 academic year (August-May).

Responsibilities:

All MC members must...

  • Attend weekly MC calls and regular Action Committee calls, send weekly progress reports via Slack, and communicate with MC and AC members on a daily basis

  • Attend two team planning retreats, in August/September and January, for several hours a day over 3-4 days (funds and availability will determine if the retreats are held virtually or in-person in Washington, DC)

Action Committee Leads will...

  • Set agendas for and lead monthly Action Committee calls
  • Lead committee discussions on action and campaign development, create timeline(s) for implementation, and follow up with members to ensure follow through on assigned tasks
  • Develop relationships with contacts in your region and/or on your campus to support and advise advocacy efforts, conveying excitement, enthusiasm, and motivation for their work and STAND’s campaigns

Depending on your position, at-large MC members will...

  • Education: Coordinate writers for and copyedit regular conflict updates; draft blog posts and educational materials that committee and grassroots members can use to learn about STAND’s areas of focus
  • Policy: Coordinate with partner organizations, analysts, and scholars to inform and develop STAND’s policy stances; advise the MC on potential collaborative actions and sign-on letters from partner organizations
  • Communications: Work with the authors of various written pieces (i.e. blog posts, op-eds, website language, campaign materials, etc) to ensure that sources are sound and that there are no grammatical or spelling errors; effectively communicate with authors to ensure changes are made in a timely manner; create graphics and other content for social media; review all national communications like mass emails
  • Outreach: Manage existing and new STAND contacts with chapters, individuals organizing on campuses, and passionate educators; onboard new chapters and provide them with the necessary materials for success; develop regular outreach newsletter
  • Fundraising: Lead development of at least two fundraising campaigns; coordinate leaders and members to develop campaign materials; engage the grassroots network in planning events, social media, and other actions; support grantwriting and foundation research
  • State Advocacy Lead Manager: Recruit and hire new SALs; onboard, train, and supervise SALs; support progress toward deliverables

Requirements:

  • Current high school, college, or graduate school student OR youth under the age of 25 years; located in the United States for the duration of the 2022-2023 academic year

  • Professional demeanor and ability to represent STAND positively to external partners
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills
  • Patience and flexibility
  • Strong leadership skills, especially the ability to motivate and hold others accountable
  • Background knowledge about STAND’s areas of focus is helpful, but the willingness to develop a strong understanding and learn from others is most important
