We’re looking for a full time Education and Leadership Coordinator to transform Vermont Schools, Communities, and Systems to build hope, equity, and power for LGBTQ+ youth. The Education and Leadership Coordinator provides training, technical assistance, and leadership development across Vermont. Using experiential education, this position connects young people and allied adults to resources, skill-building, and each other to effect positive change for LGBTQ+ youth. This is a highly collaborative position situated within our Transforming Schools, Communities, and Systems initiatives. While our headquarters are Burlington-based, this position is focused on statewide support and connection.
You should be knowledgeable about the needs of queer and trans youth, and have experience working with youth through mentorship and facilitation, leadership and curriculum development. A successful Education and Leadership Coordinator will be excited to engage in collaborative relationships with a wide-range of audiences, including Outright youth and staff, and school-based faculty and staff across the state.
This full tiime, 35 hours/week position requires reliable transportation and (COVID permitting) involves traveling throughout Vermont at all times of the year. During several key programming times, this role will require time in the evenings and weekends. Minimum 1-2 years relevant experience in the field (or combination of education and experience). This position is supported by comprehensive benefits including health care, dental care, life insurance, matched retirement contributions, an annual professional development fund, and generous paid time off.
LGBTQ youth transcend every social group and community. Outright Vermont is an anti-oppression organization that actively interrogates white supremacy culture within and without. We act in ways aligned with the understanding that how we do is as important as what we do. We know that a new framework (in practice, principles, policies, and actions) is the only way to a truly liberated future for all. Specifically, in recent years Outright has overhauled HR practices, engaged in regular anti-racism learning opportunities for staff and board members, and built upon relationships of solidarity and accountability with youth and community partners. Ensuring our organizational culture and programs create welcome and belonging for youth of color and neurodivergent youth is critical to our mission.
