About Andrew Goodman Foundation:
We’re rooted in a powerful story from the past. At the height of the Civil Rights Movement, Andrew Goodman joined Freedom Summer 1964 to register African-Americans to vote. On his first day in Mississippi, he and two other civil rights workers, James Chaney and Michael Schwerner, were murdered by the Ku Klux Klan.

Andrew and his contemporaries were young Americans who were committed to changing the world, and joined a movement to take action against injustice.

Job Summary:
The Andrew Goodman Foundation (AGF) is building a national non-partisan movement of students and college and university campuses dedicated to increasing student voter participation. If you are passionate about ensuring that young voices and votes matter in our democracy, then help us build our movement by applying to become a Regional Program Manager. Since 2014, the Andrew Goodman Vote Everywhere program has supported student leaders and higher education institutions across the nation to increase student voting and foster a culture of civic engagement on campuses through the provision of financial and advisory support, leadership training, as well as other digital, educational, and marketing materials. The Andrew Goodman Vote Everywhere program has grown exponentially and today boasts a network of some 65 campuses in 25 states and Washington, D.C. comprised of over 400 student Ambassadors, university professionals, and alumni.

The Regional Program Manager will manage a portfolio of campuses in the South, including the Deep South to remove voting impediments, register students, and develop informed student voters, and to get out the student vote. The Regional Program Manager works closely with AGF staff, student leadership, higher education staff and leadership, and other non-profit leaders to promote youth electoral and civic engagement. The Regional Program Managers’ campus portfolio will include large public universities, Minority Serving Institutions (like Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Predominately Black Institutions, and Hispanic Serving Institutions), community colleges, and private liberal arts colleges all of which may have varied, unique, and rich cultures of civic engagement and community upliftment.

● Monitor and evaluate campus portfolio through semester and annual reporting
