New Dream Regional Coordinator

About the Position

The Regional Coordinator position is responsible for helping with outreach, organizing, and communications for New Dream in a specific geography—i.e., a state or region. The Regional Coordinator is currently a volunteer position, although in the future we hope to provide a stipend for this work. The position offers the Coordinator an opportunity to join a national network working on consumption and sustainability, get training on these issues, and make a difference in his or her community.

Responsibilities include:

  • Researching appropriate groups, nonprofits, campuses, media, community leaders, and government officials to reach out to in the region. 
  • Giving presentations about New Dream to local community and civic organizations, campus and student groups, neighborhood associations, businesses and city governments.
  • Representing New Dream at conferences, festivals, and workshops by tabling, leafleting, and/or speaking.
  • Helping to organize events, including trainings, workshop and outreach opportunities for local New Dream members and others to gather and plan community projects.
  • Promoting New Dream events, publications, and news via traditional and social media.

Qualifications and Experience

  • Desire to learn about New Dream issues, projects, and strategies and share them with others
  • Ability to build relationships and work with a variety of people from diverse backgrounds
  • Strong written and oral communication skills and ability to give presentations
  • Enthusiasm and positive attitude
  • Availability, dependability, and willingness to be flexible
  • Ability to commit to consistent number of days/hours per month for New Dream activities
  • Ability to work well independently and on a team
  • Leadership experience
  • Interest and experience in community building and sustainability issues a plus

This position can be based anywhere within the continental United States, although New Dream is especially interested in regions in the South and Midwest.
