King Day of Service: Community Projects and Outreach Lead
A little more about us:
Global Citizen is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting community volunteering, diversity, and sustained civic engagement among people of all backgrounds and ages, particularly young people. We bring people together to build diverse, ongoing partnerships through social justice and serving others.
Global Citizen runs the annual Greater Philadelphia Martin Luther King Day of Service and an ongoing program that promotes year-round volunteer service and civic engagement. We provide technical training for organizations interested in hosting projects and work with community groups and businesses to develop or expand ongoing volunteer programs.
We are a small organization, but our impact is widespread throughout the region. The Greater Philadelphia Martin Luther King Day of Service is the oldest and largest King Day event in the nation. This past January, more than 150,000 volunteers served in some 1,800 community projects throughout the region. We have hosted events with national and international leaders, including Vice President Joe Biden, governors, Members of Congress, mayors, Nobel Peace Prize winner Leymah Gbowee, and the CEO of the Corporation for National and Community Service. As a part of our team, you will make connections with leaders throughout the nonprofit, education, and business communities.
Our style is flexible, creative and team-orientated. We work closely together and also encourage creative thinking among staff colleagues to make our programs/projects successful. In the weeks leading up to the King Day of Service, we work longer hours – you should be prepared for some late nights – but we have fun and do meaningful work.
