  • Building relationships with faculty and administrators

  • During the summer, each Campus Organizer runs a citizen outreach office. This entails fundraising and building the organization, by canvassing and training others to canvass. 

 

Qualifications:

·         Strong work ethic

·         Outstanding verbal and written communication

·         Proven leadership skills

·         Strong commitment to getting results

·         Passion for making positive social change
