We're Hiring a Development Associate

Next Up is seeking a committed, resourceful, part-time, Development Associate. This position reports directly to and works closely with the Executive Director, helping the team to leverage new opportunities, cultivate critical partnerships, and maintain high standards in data, communications, and relationships.

We’re looking for someone who believes in the power of young people to create change and is passionate about building power for our movements by making money moves. You are a money organizer-- you ensure nothing is falling through the cracks in order to raise as much money as possible to ensure programs and staff are supported. Our ideal candidate takes initiative, is highly organized, builds relationships easily, and has experience with customer service, administration, and data.
