Our movement for social and ecological justice could not exist without the support of our community. If you’d like to help advance our mission, but aren’t sure where to start, you’ve come to the right place! We’ve organized support opportunities into four main categories: recruitment, current JV support, financial support, and community development. Within each category, we’ve provided a low-barrier entry point followed by additional tiers of engagement and commitment. Once you’ve read through the opportunities, feel free to initiate one or more opportunities that feel right for you. Thank you!
1. Help Us Recruit the Next Generation of JVs
Inspire others by sharing your JV story with us to be published on our blog, magazine, or social media. Send quote, photos, videos, or reflections to Communications and Engagement Manager Phil Gerigscott via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Unsure of how to best share your story? We’re happy to collaborate with you on the process!
Be an interviewer for JV applicants (paid opportunity). Sign-up period is October/November for a 6 month-commitment. Amount of interviews over the 6 months fluctuates throughout the season, but we ask for at least 5 hours of availability per week.
2. Support Current JVs
If you live in a locale where JVs serve and want to be more involved, email Alumni Engagement Coordinator Laura Keating to get connected with the In-Locale Coordinator in your area.
If you live in a locale where JVs serve, become an In-Locale Coordinator (1-year commitment. Paid opportunity.)
3. Financial Support
3. Community Development
