College Campus Organizer (Full-Time)

Reports to: Manager, Community Education and Outreach

Womankind uses the multidimensionality of our Asian heritage to work alongside survivors of gender-based violence as they build a path to healing. Through our programs, we offer access to a safe place to live, counseling, legal assistance, wellness activities, and so much more. Womankind is an expert in serving Asian communities, yet our services are valuable and available to all. Whether in our services or in our increasing advocacy and policy work, Womankind first centers the survivor by uplifting them to control their own lives and narratives. In addition to promoting healing and safety through service provision, Womankind promotes gender justice through research, coalition building, policy analysis, and community education and mobilization. 

College Campus Coordinator will work within the Community Education and Outreach program. 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.
