Support our mission? Want to join the team?
We are currently accepting new facilitators and would love to meet you! If you are interested in making a mark and becoming part of the work we do, please complete the application below.
What You Will Gain
Grow as a facilitator and leader in a supportive environment, and get hands-on facilitation and mentorship experience—all while boosting your own activism knowledge and tool-kit! Please note that this is a volunteer position, with no financial compensation (but we'll cover all associated costs).
No previous facilitation experience necessary, as YSCF will support you along the way with lesson plans, weekly debriefs, and frequent communication. The curricula are designed to work for a broad range of comfort levels. We provide enough guidance and resources that you can have things to work off, but also they are purposely adaptable for you to bring in your own ideas and skills.
Facilitators for Explorers: 2-3 hours a week
Facilitators for Youth Activists and Change Makers: 3-4 hours a week
Explanation of commitment: Explorers meet once a week for 60 minutes. Young activists meet for 75 minutes, and Change-Makers for 90 minutes a week. The general ratio of planning to teaching is 1:1, but it may take more time than that depending on how comfortable you are with and your style of facilitating. On top of your responsibilities with your group, all the facilitators will meet once a week to discuss how things are going, share ideas with each other, and problem solve. We will meet from 9/28-12/18.
Other ways to get involved

If you're interested in of those roles, send us an email!
