The NAACP is looking for highly ambitious candidates for our Civic Engagement State Director for Virginia during the 2024 election cycle. The Civic Engagement State Director’s primary duties are to ensure that all state goals on volunteer recruitment, broad coordination, and voter registration, turnout, and protection are met. State Civic Engagement Directors will also assist and monitor the success of Building Community Voice Fund (BCVF) grantees.

The NAACP/GSSA 2024 civic engagement program is comprised of an interdependent complex of 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) suite of programs that leverage the NAACP’s brand, respected leadership, vast membership, and reach in Black communities nationwide, enabling us to mobilize Black voters at an unparalleled depth and scale. Our 2024 program will engage as many as 12 million Black voters through a defined suite of programs.

• Early Volunteer Program (EVP) is a volunteer recruitment and training program directed toward high-propensity Black registrants and NAACP members, designed to secure early and enduring commitments to participate in the IRVT program. The national volunteer recruitment goal for 2024 is 300,000 and each state will have a set recruitment goal.

• Indirect Relational Voter Turnout (IRVT) is an approach to relational voter turnout pioneered by GSSA, which provides NAACP members and high propensity Black voters lists of low- and moderate-propensity Black voters in their communities to contact and encourage to vote.

• Traditional GOTV (TGOTV) is a centrally managed operation to increase Black turnout and complement parallel non-traditional GOTV efforts, such as IRVT. It leverages the power of the NAACP’s brand and is strategically deployed through a variety of GOTV treatment modes, from SMS to mail to canvassing.

• Mass and Continuous Communications (M&CC) is a communications strategy to continuously broadcast research-based communications, primarily through radio and digital programming, to increase turnout, civic engagement, and raise awareness of the NAACP’s electoral efforts.

• Building Community Voice Fund (BCVF) is a non-partisan fund that provides grants to 501(c)(3) voter registration and voter turnout initiatives and organizations, including complementary voter education and protection programs, operating in down-ballot and local elections.


The State Civic Engagement Director will work and coordinate directly with NAACP Campaigns Department and GSSA on program strategy for all statewide and centrally managed civic engagement efforts.

  • Coordinate and execute Traditional GOTV (T-GOTV) methods that are not centrally managed such as field canvass programs and phone/text bank programs. Goals will be set by the centrally managed team and program methods will be determined based on capacity and resources.
  • Provide qualitative and quantitative reports to be shared between the national, state and local NAACP
  • Track and analyze performance in-State Coordination
  • Work closely with BCVF Program Director to assist and ensure the success of grantees.
