We are looking for three part-time, paid organizers to join our collective organizing team! See job descriptions below for details about each position and how to apply.
Girls Rock Charleston (GRC) is a grassroots youth organizing and culture change organization led by young women, transgender/gender non-conforming people and queer-identified people that builds power among girls, women and trans/GNC youth in Charleston, South Carolina. GRC was founded in 2011 to address the intersecting problems of racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and poverty in Charleston, SC by lifting the leadership of girls and trans/GNC youth most directly affected by these issues. It is our goal to resource the visionary leadership of girls and trans/GNC youth of color as they transform our city into a site of healing and possibility.
We believe that our leaders should reflect the communities in which we work. Therefore, women, transgender/gender non-conforming people, people of color, working class people, and people who have been directly impacted by the justice system are strongly encouraged to apply. Because we are committed to building leadership among youth in our city and state who do not typically have access to leadership pipelines, these are non-traditional roles that includes at least six months of on-the-job training, during which the candidates will work one-on-one with a more seasoned organizer who will pass on skills and institutional knowledge. The candidates will work as part of a collective of lead organizers who will guide and sustain the organization over the course of the next three (or more) years. GRC is a small but growing organization, and these positions provide opportunity for lead organizers to expand their roles and salary as the organization grows.
