  • Share your global work experiences with Idealist staff

    New York, NY, US

    Participate in our Beyond Borders speaker series

    To gain global perspective about the experiences of social good organizations around the world, Idealist is looking for people who've worked outside the United States to participate in an informal conversation with our staff in New York City or Portland, Oregon.


    We'd love to meet with you if you're:

    - Back in the US after having worked abroad for at least six months

    - A foreign national, currently living in New York or Portland, who worked in the social good sector in your home country

    - Currently living and working in another country and happen to be passing through New York or Portland



    First-hand accounts of what it's like to work in the nonprofit sector internationally will provide valuable insights as we develop tools and provide support that helps people around the world imagine, connect and act on their good intentions.

    Taking place once a month, these hour-long sessions are a forum for sharing your personal story and the work of the organization in-country, and then engaging in an open Q&A with our staff.


    Sound interesting? Know someone who would be great? Please be in touch!

    On August 1st, come join our annual "Strengthening Local Economies, Everywhere!" (SLEE) fundraiser dinner from 5-9pm!

    About the SLEE Dinner:

    CAGJ's 9th Annual SLEE Dinner will take place on Saturday, August 1st, 2015 at the University Christian Church. We are very excited to have Dean Jackson of Hilltop Urban Gardens (HUG) as our keynote. Dean will talk about "Growing Racial, Economic and Gender Justice in Tacoma". This event is more than just a delicious dinner it is a community gathering in which we aim to raise awareness and educate about how to build healthy food systems as a community-based alternative to corporate-led globalization, make connections across sectors and issues, inspire the community to take action and ensure the long-term sustainability of CAGJ by expanding our membership, developing leadership, and raising significant funds.

    Are you are interested in volunteering or helping coordinate the event? Last year we had 75 people that helped make the dinner happen.
