Deep Center’s Community Organizer supports efforts to build community power in Savannah, engages in social justice advocacy, and trains community members to understand and advocate for policies and legislation that benefit their communities, with a special focus on juvenile and criminal justice reform. The Community Organizer role is a salaried, full-time position (40 hours/week).

The Community Organizer role reports directly to and works alongside the Director of Pubic Policy and Communications, works closely with other program directors and Deep’s Youth Leadership Team, and will design, implement, and manage Deep’s on-the-ground, grassroots community advocacy plan. This role will: 1) co-create, advocate for, and train communities in Deep’s policy recommendations; 2) leverage Deep youth and family stories to elevate, complicate, and enrich the conversations about what a thriving Georgia looks like; and 3) train community members on how to create and advocate for a more just and equitable Savannah; 4) supervise the Youth Community Organizer. 

This position requires an individual who understands social, economic, and cultural systems and how historical and contemporary structural injustices adversely affect some communities while benefiting others. The ability to think strategically at the systems level to identify and articulate equitable solutions is a must. The ideal candidate is a cultural community organizer, with connections to and an understanding of the U.S. South, and who comprehends the strategic importance of advancing parallel efforts that simultaneously 1) support visionary transformational social justice movements and 2) advance legislative and policy victories that help our communities right now.
