Description

Citizen Discourse is looking for student volunteers.


Citizen Discourse provides a safe online and in-person space for young people to express themselves and engage in civil discourse so that we can create a kinder, better-informed, and more engaged society. Volunteers will primarily engage in Citizen Discourse’s online platform. They will create original content to be shared in topical “hives” (e.g., Democracy, Science, Social Justice, etc.). Additionally, they will be responsible for engaging with their peers' written content.
