Published 1 month ago

Refugee Youth and Empowerment (RYSE) Initiative provides cross-collaboration and capacity building infrastructure for community-based mentorship programs supporting young adult refugees working towards academic, career, and personal goals. 

The Outreach Coordinator role is a unique opportunity to join an all-volunteer nonprofit startup while learning and showcasing your ability to oversee the planning and implementation of outreach activities including the creation of communications content.
