The NC Raise Up Organizing Academy is a paid, 6-week summer program designed to introduce those interested in activism and social justice work to organize within the labor movement. We will be hiring a cohort of 30 fellows from across North Carolina to organize low-wage workers in four regions: Durham, Fayetteville, Charlotte, and Western North Carolina. This intensive program will combine skill-building training and political education with hands-on fieldwork.
The ideal applicant is passionate about racial and economic justice; wants to fight alongside workers to win higher wages and respect on the job; enjoys having conversations with people about the issues that matter to them; building one-on-one relationships with workers; wants to work on winning real victories that will impact workers’ lives.
This is an entry-level position. No prior organizing experience is required. No degree is required. Must be at least 18 to apply.
This program will run for 6 weeks during Summer 2021 (dates pending CDC guidelines). The application is open from March 15-May 15, 2021. Interviews will take place on a rolling basis.
