Rhizome Community Organizer Program – May 29

Posted by Rhizome on May 16, 2023

Rhizome is a student-led nonpartisan nonprofit launched by 90 Co-Founders. We know that schools are an untapped, sustainable source of civic power for young people and believe all young people deserve support to create a world that they want to live in. We train emerging leaders to revitalize democracy and build a healthier future for their communities. For more information, see our overview, insta, and website.

Community Organizers work 3-4 hours per week, are paid $15 per hour, and co-lead city-based Chapters of the Civic Service Fellowship. Working within teams of 4-5, COs onboard Fellows, co-facilitate virtual weekly organizing sessions, and support Fellows in 15-20 high schools to lead their own actions. We are hiring at least 65 Student Organizers this summer, applications are due Friday, May 29Apply Here!

We are eager to hire Community Organizers (COs) to refine our model, lead our work, and support Civic Service Fellows to lead actions. COs will join a team that supports thousands of Fellows, registers tens of thousands of students to vote, and creates sustainable, student-led spaces in high schools across the U.S.

As a student-led 501(c)(3) nonprofit, Community Organizers also receive voting rights in Rhizome. This includes the ability to discuss and vote on goals, vision, and changes to our work environment. COs also vote to approve nominees to our Board of Directors, and to decide unified actions we take in future years. Time spent in strategic conversations will be compensated fully, as COs receive hands-on insight around nonprofit leadership, build leadership skills, and learn how democratic decision-making works.
