ONE LOVE OVERVIEW
One Love exists for one reason. Yeardley Love was killed and her death was avoidable. Had anyone in her life truly understood the warning signs of an unhealthy and increasingly dangerous relationship, steps could have been taken to save her life. This realization – that Yeardley’s death might have been prevented – is the driving force behind One Love’s work today.
Over the last two and a half years, One Love has grown dramatically and is today leading a dynamic, multi-layered social engagement and educational campaign that is making a difference and changing lives. One Love’s approach is all about intervening early with innovative and relatable content that teaches young people about how to build healthy relationships. In doing this, young people tell us we are starting a conversation they have never had before. As of May 2018, over 280,000 people have participated in our workshops and 85 million have experienced #ThatsNotLove online.
By intervening at younger ages, we are helping adolescents become more mindful, deliberate and adept at navigating their relationships in a positive way. Inspired by what they are learning, young people are getting involved and recruiting their friends, excited to be part of a movement that can change community norms in a way that benefits us all.
Engagement Coordinators work to bring the Escalation Workshop and One Love educational content to specific regions where the Foundation seeks to work with a diverse set of partners including high schools and colleges as well as other youth-focused organizations, community groups, parents, and sports groups.
Engagement Coordinators work to build deep roots and authentic partnerships regionally or virtually that can help accelerate the movement to end relationship violence. The Engagement Coordinator will spend most their time focused on developing new and existing support in designated and new areas as needed or virtually if possible.
Our Engagement Coordinators play the lead role in engaging people in the movement to end relationship abuse. The ideal candidate will love building relationships with people and will be comfortable calling people he or she has never met to tell them about One Love and persuading them to get involved.
Whether it’s students on college campuses and/or entire communities, he or she will build relationships from the ground up, raising awareness about One Love’s educational tools and campaigns. Coordinators engage students, staff, campus communities, and/or the broader community deeply in our work, ultimately guiding the most motivated individuals to become leaders of this movement.
He or she must also be comfortable as a facilitator and trainer, guiding others in how to lead a meaningful discussion, using our film workshop, Escalation, as a tool. Given the critical importance of this role, it’s essential that the Engagement Coordinator believe 100% in the importance of our mission and in the power of communities, and young people in particular, to achieve ambitious goals.
Responsibilities of Engagement Coordinators include:
· Spreading One Love’s message and engaging new relationships in One Love’s work. The Engagement Coordinator will be the lead communicator of our program and vision to their constituents. Whether talking to administrators, coaches, students, parents or community partners, the ideal candidate must be able to clearly communicate the essence of our work in a way that empowers people to participate, and makes it easy for them to get involved. He or she must also be extremely organized and a strong detail manager who can work with our Salesforce database to keep track of relationship details and progress to make sure that no relationship or opportunity falls through the cracks.
· Facilitating Escalation workshops and training others to do the same. The Escalation Workshop stimulates important and sensitive discussions about relationship violence. Engagement Coordinators must be able to comfortably and adeptly manage workshops and trainings effectively. This includes facilitating small (10-20 person) and large scale (200-500 person) workshops, training facilitators to lead workshops, and helping schools to organize workshops of all sizes.
· Being a coach and cheerleader for inspired individuals, helping them to become community leaders. Escalation and #ThatsNotLove are waking students up to the presence of relationship violence in their lives and inspiring them to work for change. As their primary contact, Engagement Coordinators play a critical role in showing inspired individuals how they can participate and become true leaders in this work. This means building relationships with these individuals, providing constant support, and thinking creatively about how to help them engage their community further.
· Working with the overall team to develop best practices to refine and improve our efforts. The Engagement team works together to understand what is working or not working so that best practices can be shared across the country. The ability to set goals and evaluate against these key metrics is essential to evaluating the success of our efforts. Equally important is the ability to creatively think about the other products and tools we can develop to engage students and the broader community even more deeply with this work. Engagement Coordinators have a keen eye to what “works” in reaching young people and readily share new activation ideas amongst themselves and with student volunteers. This role involves listening to what students, administrators, parents, and community members on the ground want from One Love – and then bringing those creative ideas back to the team.
