You have three opportunities to join the SustainUS leadership and share your talents with U.S. youth advancing sustainable development!
For general information, expectations, and eligibility for all of our positions, visit sustainus.org/election.
Deadline: Saturday, September 26th
Media Relations Coordinator
The Media Relations Coordinator handles most of SustainUS's requests from the media, and distributes our messages to the media. Opportunities include taking calls and emails from reporters and directing them to the best SustainUS leaders or members for interviews or questions, in certain cases representing SustainUS to the media, sending out press releases and preparing other press materials. This is good experience for future PR, spokesperson, or communications positions.
Development Director - Small Grants and Individual Support
Work with the Development Director for Major Grants and Gifts to design SustainUS's fundraising program. Specifically, use your creativity to seek out small grants for individual purchases or small SustainUS projects or funds, give individual donors a return on their investment in SustainUS, and have a hand in shaping SustainUS's future projects, including potentially funding your own, with your ideas.
CSocD Policy Advisor
Follow news and relevant updates related to the Commission for Social Development so SustainUS can stay knowledgeable of the meetings, consolidate CSocD materials and synthesize them into useful documents for new delegates, establish initial SustainUS policy positions on CSocD topics, assist in making any submissions to the UN, participate in any interim CSocD meetings. The Policy Advisor must still apply to participate in the SustainUS delegation (for funding and housing), but receives additional consideration and automatic accreditation.
