Real Sex Ed Saves Lives!

Masakhane Center is searching for volunteers to join us this summer! Masakhane is a youth-driven organization providing community-based sexuality education in and around Newark, NJ. Masakhane’s anti-racist, pro-queer & pro-trans approach to sex-positive programming seeks to promote sexual liberation, including the right to pleasure, for marginalized communities. We are in need of your help to make this happen!

Our volunteers help us with three different things, and we encourage you to tell us which you are most interested in:

  • Creating content for and posting on our social media, particularly Instagram
  • Updating our resource guide for youth-friendly services in the Newark, NJ area
  • Creating paper handouts and resource sheets to support our in-person programs

Volunteers can be expected to meet once a month virtually (Zoom) on the second Sunday of the month for 2.5 hours. These live collaboration sessions are led by our volunteer coordinator and are a space for you to meet fellow volunteers, play some sex ed games, and start working on your volunteer projects. You will be expected to continue working your project on your own time and report out at the following session. This volunteer program is completely remote, so you’re welcome to join us from anywhere! We will be meeting from 12-2:30 pm EST.

Volunteers receive training in sex ed topics at our orientation and the following Zoom meetings. Additional - and optional - occasional opportunities may arise for you to come in-person to help out with tabling, flyering, or in-person MC events.

Volunteers may be any age 16 and up. This is not a paid / stipend position.

APPLICATIONS

  • If this sounds like your jam, apply today!
  • Application deadline: Friday, June 21st.
  • After you apply, you will be invited to an interview between June 28th - July 2nd.
  • Our first meeting/orientation is on July 14. We can’t wait to meet you!
