Need A Skilled, Effective Young Organizer?
JUSTICECORPS conducts nationwide recruitment for young activists seeking to work with community organizations. JUSTICECORPS places recent college grads in one year community organizing or advocacy jobs that focus on local, state, and national campaigns to end homelessness, renew communities, reform education and welfare, redirect budget priorities, and achieve social and economic justice. We are working through career centers, campus groups, student listservs, and university publications at over 400 campuses to attract a broader applicant pool than local groups can typically
reach. Our recruitment especially focuses on attracting students of color. JUSTICECORPS participants are seasoned student activists who can work independently, build organizations, display effective leadership, and organize and initiate campaigns.
Following a training session provided by JUSTICECORPS, organizers begin their full-time positions with community organizations across the nation. Jobs are scheduled to begin in September of 2003. An annual salary (minimum of $18,500) plus health benefits are paid by the participating organization. Groups interested in a position
should review our website at www.JUSTICECORPS.org or contact us at Justicecorps@thclinic.org.
