About the position

Northeast Ohio Voter Advocates (NOVA) is a 13-year-old non-partisan, non-profit organization that is committed to increasing voter turnout in Cleveland’s underserved neighborhoods and wards via leadership and strategic partnerships with community organizations. NOVA is unique in that it measures its voting impact via turnout and related research. We value applicants who share our passion for voting, have had direct experience in training and organizing volunteers, have helped with analyzing and reconciling data, and have used social media strategically. NOVA is proud to have made voting easier for tens of thousands of community members in the last decade. 


The ideal candidate must work with a wide range of multicultural, racially diverse colleagues in grassroots organizations including government and community programs in health, hunger, housing, job training, and educational organizations as well as incarceration. We value applicants with experience in projects that have improved lower-income communities in specific, concrete ways. Personal relationships with community organizations and leadership in Cleveland’s underserved neighborhoods are valued. 

Qualifications: 

We are seeking applicants who share our passion for voting, have had direct experience in:

  • training and organizing volunteers
  • managing staff in a positive, supportive working environment; 
  • building and maintaining productive partnerships with nonprofits, grassroots community groups and government organizations;
  • cultivating relationships with community foundations and potential donors;
  • working with spreadsheets and making data-informed decisions


A bachelor’s degree with at least two years of experience is preferred, but candidates with additional experience and no degree will be considered. Bilingual candidates are also preferred, particularly candidates who speak languages commonly spoken in Cleveland’s immigrant communities, such as Spanish, Arabic, Nepali, Swahili, Dari or Pashto.


The ideal candidate must work with diverse colleagues in partner and stakeholder organizations, including government and grassroots programs in health, food aid, housing, job training, and educational organizations, as well as carceral settings. Applicants should have experience in projects that have made measurable improvements in low-income or disenfranchised communities. Existing connections with community organizations and leaders in Cleveland’s underserved neighborhoods are valued.

  • Maintaining NOVA’s website for volunteer scheduling for specific times and locations
  • Overseeing preparation of volunteer materials and bags. 
  •  Assist with training other organizations’ staff to register their own clients and work with NOVA on increasing turnout, especially in lower-income wards.

  • Managing NOVA’s GOTV program including text messaging and phone banking
  • Maintaining NOVA’s volunteer database 
  • Creating and testing specific civic engagement and voting messages in-person and on social media.
