College Campus Organizer (Full-Time)

Reports to: Manager, Community Education and Outreach

Community Education and Outreach is a critical program at Womankind. It is through this program that Womankind not only shares information about our services, but also expands our reach. Community education and outreach are essential parts of a comprehensive approach to reducing and preventing gender-based violence as imparting awareness and knowledge will slowly shift deeply embedded societal and cultural norms. College Campus Coordinator will work as part of the Community Education and Outreach team.

Womankind believes that conducting gender-based violence prevention work for college-aged young adults is vital to creating safer communities. It has become increasingly evident that college campuses face unique challenges when it comes to addressing gender-based violence as college-aged people experience increased risks of sexual violence and dating violence. Womankind believes that it is imperative to strengthen and expand the work already being done on and off college campuses with youth ages 18-24. We strive to utilize community education and outreach to mobilize college-aged young adults in their efforts to address gender-based violence. By building relationships with students, student leaders, faculty, staff on campuses and young adults off campuses, we are able to build a network of resources for survivors and their loved ones as well as foster reflection, accountability, and healing.

College Campus Coordinator is expected to build and strengthen both formal and informal relationships on college campuses within New York City, especially those with significant Asian student populations. This role requires someone who recognizes the importance of conducting gender-based violence prevention work and educational outreach to young adults beyond college campus spaces. Much of this work will be done through recurrent needs assessments on and off campuses, developing partnerships and collaborations, and engaging in outreach events. The College Campus Coordinator will attend community education and outreach events, develop and facilitate presentations/trainings, support/co-facilitate group work and conduct related research to expand preventative gender-based violence work at higher education institutions.
