Position Description:

WFP is building a national party of the left. We’re investing in building the base our country needs. WFP Organizers are part of a cadre of skilled organizers that help us build membership and elect transformative leaders to office.

An apprentice organizer is offered a salary, training, and mentorship to build the skills needed to organize members and leaders and build political power. This apprenticeship is a 1-year FT temporary role mentored and evaluated by the Field Organizing Director (and other key leaders in the organization). The period is from January 31st, 2022 through December 20th, 2022. The period is meant to allow the prospective organizer to experience direct organizing full-time and practice the arts of WFP 2.0 organizing so that they can wrestle with if the vocation of organizing is for them and if WFP is their political home. WFP organizes its members through local clubs, which endorse candidates, build membership and organize in their communities. Apprentice organizers will be responsible for building local clubs in their community. They will also be responsible for helping community leaders learn voter contact best practices, and translating the political power built-in local clubs into action, by helping build programs to knock doors and make phone calls for candidates nominated and endorsed by clubs.

As a Philadelphia organizer, the geographic focus will be based in North and West Philadelphia, in addition to WFP strategic priorities.

As an Allentown organizer, the geographic focus will be based in the Lehigh Valley, in addition to WFP strategic priorities.

Qualifications:
[*]A year or more of previous organizing or relevant experience working in communities of color
[*] Excellent listening and interpersonal skills
[*] The ability to work independently and hold yourself accountable in a remote, entrepreneurial work environment
[*] Experience working within and/or with cooperative businesses and democratic workplaces
[*] Familiarity with progressive issues, especially the fight for a $15 minimum wage, a Green New Deal, ending mass incarceration, pro-democracy reforms, and health equity during the COVID pandemic.
[*] Sincere commitment to democratic collaboration and cooperation, with experience working with multiple stakeholders
[*] Proficiency using spreadsheets and constituent relationship management systems[*] Strong interest/background in community organizing, community development, and/or adult learning/workforce development
[*] Availability to work some evenings and weekends
