Overview

New Hampshire Youth Movement is looking for four Regional Organizers to support our community organizing, leadership development, and Get-out-the-Vote efforts. This full time role is an opportunity to level up your existing organizing skills, mentor passionate student organizers, and be a critical leader in the movement to elect progressive champions in November. We are building a New Hampshire that works for everyone, and we need to build youth power to elect people who will stand up for issues like Affordable Housing, LGBTQ+ Rights, Climate Justice, Racial Justice, Reproductive Rights, and Public Education.

Role Overview
Regional Organizers will lead and execute fieldwork in a region of the state, traveling to strategic areas to pledge young people to vote. The main tactics include: tabling on college campuses and community events, planning events, knocking doors, and phone banking. You’ll focus on organizing college campuses in your region—supporting existing organizing efforts on campuses, and recruiting new student leaders. As the program grows, you’ll manage a small team of core leaders and other field organizing staff in your region, managing their fieldwork, helping out on the ground, holding them accountable to goals, and mentoring them through challenges.
