About Future Majority:
Future Majority is a national nonpartisan organization working to make young people’s voices heard in our democracy. We empower young people across the country to create a political environment where all parties need to listen to the youth vote.
The federal election on October 21st, 2019 will be incredibly close. We predict that 85 ridings will be decided by 3,000 or fewer votes. 24 of those ridings have at least one university or community college campus with an average of 11,000 students. Our goal is to empower those students to determine who forms government and decide our country's future.
Future Majority is just starting and the campus organizer position will be the second member of our organization (we don’t even have a website yet!). This position begins January 2019 and will last the full calendar year, with opportunity for extension in 2020 and significant leadership and advancement depending on performance.
As the 2019 election approaches, Future Majority aims to have organizers on each of the 24 key community college and university campuses in Canada. We will educate over 60,000 students in some of the most important federal ridings in the country about how the major political parties have voted on the issues that matter most to young people and engage these students to vote.
The campus organizer is responsible for building Future Majority’s network of student leaders on a community college or university campus. The campus organizer will lead the execution of large-scale, volunteer-driven voter education drives and turnout programs targeting young voters in major elections on a campus. The campus organizer will engage student volunteers in driving our organizing and voter education campaigns forward, including through recruitment, relationship building, regular communication/outreach, training, events, management, and plugging volunteers into leadership opportunities.
The ideal candidate has community outreach experience, is an experienced organizer and/or leader, is able to mobilize young adults for powerful strategic action, can effectively represent the organization with students and campus administrators, and is excited to earn the opportunity to take on more leadership as the organization grows.
A passion for Future Majority’s mission.
Excellent communication skills – engaging and motivating to peers; confident with public speaking and moving people to take action.
Ability and willingness to work in a fast-paced work environment and a start-up atmosphere, with a good deal of self-direction.
Self-starter who shows strong initiative in making improvements to our work sets high standards for individual and team performance and is committed to constant improvement of yourself and the organization.
Highly organized & detail-oriented, with proven ability to effectively and independently manage projects with many moving parts to produce high-quality results in a timely manner.
Must thrive on change, innovation, and teamwork.
We care more about your talent, desire to do the work, and your drive and ability to improve every day than whether you have formal or informal experience
Here’s a list of knowledge/skills/qualities that our ideal candidate would possess:
Reliable transportation and a driver’s license strongly preferred.
