350VT is hiring a part-time Community Organizer to join our team of grassroots climate justice organizers! We’re looking for someone who has been involved in grassroots organizing before (volunteer or paid), and who brings a strong commitment to social justice and a deep justice analysis to their organizing and relationships, communicates and listens well, connects easily with a wide range of people, and thrives both collaborating closely with others and working independently.
The Community Organizer will build and strengthen the climate justice movement statewide. They will bring in new volunteers, support local volunteer teams around the state, develop volunteers’ leadership, organize events, contribute to policy research and campaign strategy, and build and maintain relationships with allies and partners. They will work closely with 350VT staff, board members, and volunteers in the context of a highly collaborative, continually evolving shared leadership structure.
The Community Organizer position is part-time, 24 hours (about 3 days) per week. The position is paid at $21.40 – $24.30/hour, depending on experience (around $26.7K – $30.3K/year). We encourage BIPOC, LGBTQ+, women, and people from other underrepresented communities to apply. Please learn more about the role and apply on our website by July 5: https://350vermont.org/opportunities/
350VT's organizing work is focused on our Just Transition campaign: pushing state legislators and other leaders in Vermont communities to listen to those most impacted by the climate crisis and intersecting injustices, especially BIPOC and lower-income communities, and to center justice and equity in all action on climate change. We have been diversifying our board. We are engaging in some organizational diversity- and equity-focused work, currently focused on a process to updating our mission statement and core values.
