Applications will be accepted until noon, EST on Monday, October 29th.


CUP is committed to fostering greater equity in the work we produce, the way we produce it, and the way we function as an organization. We seek to be an organization where people with different abilities and from different racial, ethnic, gender, and socioeconomic backgrounds can thrive together, and where our practices create opportunities, not barriers, to achieving greater social justice. In support of our commitment to achieving greater social justice, CUP strives to be a healthy, positive, and sustainable place to work. To that end, we provide free health insurance benefits, professional development opportunities, and a reasonable work schedule that allows our staff to have a healthy life both inside and outside of work. We are also committed to working together as a staff to better understand issues of race, equity, and justice and to continue to further our own education on how we engage with and address those issues as individuals and as an organization. We ask all staff members to engage in continuous professional development, and use our annual review process to identify individual goals for each year. This is a full-time, salaried position. Pay will be commensurate with experience. CUP is a 10-person organization with an annual budget of $1.2 million. Our office is based in Gowanus, Brooklyn, but we work with community partners all over New York City and travel throughout the five boroughs regularly. This position may also entail occasional travel outside of New York City. Normal staff hours are 10 am to 6 pm, but our work requires occasional evening and weekend events, such as launch events, workshops, presentations, and fundraisers.
