Assistant Director of Outreach & Coalitions


The Assistant Director of Outreach and Coalitions will play a critical role in building our collaborations with an emphasis on youth, community, educational, equity-oriented, and democracy-building groups and leaders. The work in 2021 will focus on Southern California, Arizona, and Pennsylvania and will expand to other regions and states as our capacity and staff increase in future years.  

Under the supervision of the Associate Director, the responsibilities of the Assistant Director of Outreach and Coalitions include the following:

  • Lead and manage outreach and relationship building with community leaders, educators, and organizations and use distributed and relational organizing tools to build out regional outreach in our target communities.
  • Build effective relationships with other groups to promote joint programming, referrals, and expansion of the Ready to Vote Coalition, the coalition TCC convenes to support High School Voter Registration Week and our other youth and democracy work. Seek endorsements of HSVRW from community and school leaders and elected officials. 
  • Support and contribute to the development of TCC’s student network, recruiting new participants for TCC’s programming and serving as a liaison between student leaders and local nonpartisan organizations that promote civic engagement.
  • Develop and support TCC’s educator network, including meeting regularly with educators, coordinating programming and communications, and promoting TCC’s work in schools. 

Qualifications (You will be a good fit if):

  • You are committed to our values. You care about democracy and laws that promote voting rights and access. You embrace nonpartisan civic engagement. You love working with youth from diverse backgrounds. You model respect, integrity, hard work, and follow-through. You love to learn, have a growth mindset, welcome constructive feedback and are committed to a respectful work environment with exceptionally high standards. You are a problem solver, and you enjoy sharing your thoughts and opinions and participating in deliberative discussions to innovate with concrete, ambitious goals in mind. You are always honest, open about mistakes, and you enjoy helping others.
  • You are a great communicator. You listen to others and care what they have to say. You can communicate with diverse audiences in an engaging way both orally and in writing. You are committed to making communications both accurate and fun and to building relationships for TCC among a broad array of groups, leaders, educators, and students. You can take a leadership role in creating or supervising the creation of social media and other communication toolkits for our partner organizations.
  • You are great with meetings, details, follow-up, and metrics. Key goals for this position include expanding our coalition, expanding the number of students in our programs, expanding the number of high school voter registration drives students hold, and expanding support among community leaders and educators. Excellent skills relating to one-on-one and group meetings is required, including scheduling, reaching out to new contacts via phone and email, promoting attendance, creating agendas, inviting speakers, encouraging participation, having meaningful one-on-one meetings, making others feel valued, asking for and obtaining key commitments, and taking care of post-meeting follow up to ensure appropriate cultivation and development of key relationships. You should also have the ability to train and supervise college students and volunteers who we engage in our work of finding youth leaders.
  • You have great experience.  We are looking for someone with at least 2+ years of political and/or program experience or college campus organizing experience that has provided you with practice in organizing, including outreach, coalition building, recruiting, communications, and project management. It is a significant plus to have an existing network in Los Angeles and/or Orange County, California.
  • You are great with tech tools. We use EveryAction, Asana, and G-Suite. If you don’t know these systems, you must have experience demonstrating that you can learn them quickly.
