Job Description

**About the Race**
As one of the nation’s key swing states, Pennsylvania is familiar with the perennial influx of out of state organizers and single-cycle organizing programs. These programs are designed to maximize voter participation, but often fall short of truly empowering Pennsylvanians to take the lead on civic engagement in our state. Young voters, too, are used to hearing that their votes will save us. At Project 26, we have proven that with the right support, young people are ready to do more than deliver key votes–they are ready to lead. 

With over 600,000 college students in Pennsylvania, young voters have the numbers and the power to shape the future of our Commonwealth through leadership in the electoral process.

We’re building a scrappy and innovative operation to protect and expand democracy by elevating youth leadership across the state in order to empower thousands of college students to take control of their futures, get organized, and vote in the 2024 elections. 

**What Will You Do?**
The Deputy Director will be the State Director’s thought partner on all aspects of Project 26. In addition to developing internal strategy, campaign guidance, and thought leadership, this senior level position will work closely with the State Director to:
- Oversee day-to-day operations and finance
- Manage vendor relationships
- Manage key partner and political relationships, including assisting in the convening and administration of PA’s first youth vote table
- Support the State Director in fundraising, regranting, and board management

**Who Are You?**
A successful candidate for this role will have: 
- At least three cycles of campaign experience, at least one in a Director role
- Strong organizational and communication skills, attention to detail, responsiveness, and a passion for the work
- Proficiency with VAN, including experience with VAN as an administrator (e.g., managing user profiles and scripts, creating targets, and utilizing and interpreting scores)
- Experience managing budgets and/or vendors
- Experience managing broad coalitions of partners
- Prior staff management experience is a plus

**Job Details: **Compensation for this role is $8,500 per month and includes health benefits, 401K, and a technology stipend. This is a full time role with a target start date of January 15th.
