Health Global Access Project & Student Global AIDS Campaign
This is an exciting position with a small, dynamic team working to campaign against policies of neglect and greed, that undermine access to treatment and fuel the spread of HIV around the globe, as part of the effort to confront and ultimately stop the AIDS pandemic.
As the National Grassroots Organizer for the Health Global Access Project (Health GAP) and the Student Global AIDS Campaign, you will work across most of our key campaigns primarily to build our grassroots capacities among students and young people and other groups of people living with HIV, service providers, faith leaders, and others nationwide to advance key campaigns.
In particular, you will play a leading role in giving strategic guidance to the development and growth of the Student Global AIDS Campaign (SGAC) and Positive Youth Network (PYN)—two grassroots, youth-led initiatives housed by Health GAP.
The ideal candidate is a self-starter, who is comfortable working in an organization where more than 50% of staff work remotely, shares our fundamental belief in the human right to life and health, is fierce in speaking truth to power, and has demonstrated a commitment to championing the rights of people that are disproportionately affected by HIV (including men who have sex with men, trans people, people who inject drugs, sex workers and other marginalized groups). You will have existing skills in building a base of grassroots power among people living with HIV, students, and others as core components of local, national and/or global campaigns for social justice.
Based in New York, this position will report to Health GAP’s Managing Director and will also work closely with the Student Global AIDS Campaign’s Steering Committee.
Health GAP is an equal opportunity employer. People living with HIV, women, people of color, and LGBT candidates are strongly encouraged to apply. All Health GAP employees receive fully employer-paid health and dental insurance.
Interested candidates should submit a cover letter and curriculum vitae to email@example.com by May 1, 2015. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
Grow the SGAC/PYN network of chapters and strengthen engagement of existing chapters;
Mobilize SGAC chapters, students/youth, people living HIV, and other communities to engage national policymakers on issues of global health injustice.
Work with the SGAC/PYN Steering Committee to bottom-line the development of new chapters and to provide ongoing support and guidance to existing chapters;
Work closely with other Health GAP staff and volunteers to develop national grassroots mobilization strategy and to ensure synergies with campaign goals;
Coordination of logistics (as needed) for the SGAC-PYN annual conference, training workshops and other meetings/events;
Maintain grassroots databases;
Develop and disseminate training and campaign materials;
Conduct issue and skills-based training for grassroots;
Assist with writing reports, newsletters, and grant proposals for campaigns;
Write email alerts, press releases, and other outreach and informational materials as needed;
Organize and participate in weekly steering committee calls and provide regular briefings to students and other grassroots groups on campaign/policy developments;
Develop and maintain relationships with key partners and players in the field;
Assist with supervision of intern(s).
This is a challenging role that requires hard work, flexibility, a can-do attitude, and an ability to deliver results without a great deal of supervision. The core competencies that any successful candidate will display are:
Strong teamwork skills, comfortable in a highly collaborative team culture;
Working understanding of grassroots mobilization and capacity building;
Professionalism, efficiency and results-oriented delivery on short timelines;
Excellent written and oral communication skills;
Passion and commitment to addressing HIV/AIDS, health, human rights social justice, and citizen empowerment;
Enthusiasm for our core campaign areas, and a readiness to move swiftly between them, while being able to rapidly focus in on the details of each;
Prior experience in policy advocacy or legislative lobbying on relevant issues, preferred;
Strong strategic thinking and campaign planning skills;
Technologically and social media savvy;
Creativity for campaign tactics and strategies;
Willingness to travel extensively on a tight budget.
Health Global Access Project
Health GAP is a dynamic, action-oriented advocacy group dedicated to achieving equitable access to treatment and care for people with AIDS in developing countries. Created in 1999 by a group of U.S.-based AIDS and human rights activists, public health experts, fair trade advocates, health professionals and other concerned individuals, Health GAP combines high-level policy analysis and advocacy with grassroots campaigning, to challenge and circumvent harmful or obstructionist policies and practices that frustrate efforts to address the AIDS pandemic and to mobilize the resources needed to scale up and sustain the global response to the epidemic. Health GAP currently has staff based in the United States, Uganda and Kenya.
Student Global AIDS Campaign & Positive Youth Network
The Student Global AIDS Campaign (SGAC) is a youth-led project—housed by Health GAP—that mobilizes students and youth across the United States to engage in strategic political advocacy and direct action towards ending the global AIDS epidemic. A network of 30 chapters based on college and university campuses across the United States, SGAC demands sufficient resources, effective prevention and guaranteed access to AIDS treatment and care for people living with HIV around the world.
In 2013, SGAC launched the Positive Youth Network—a national network for HIV positive youth and students to come together to engage in strategic advocacy to shape the global AIDS response. Modeled on Gay-Straight Alliances, the Network is open to both positive and negative students and youth.
