Hudson Valley Program Officer | North Star Fund
Do you have roots in grassroots community organizing efforts in the Hudson Valley? Are you a talented facilitator and program designer? Can you juggle multiple deadlines and priorities?
North Star Fund is a social justice fund that supports grassroots organizing led by communities of color building power in New York City and the Hudson Valley. We give grants to grassroots organizations through a process that shifts decision-making power towards communities fighting for justice. We organize people from all backgrounds to mobilize resources towards social justice movements.
Through our Community Funding Committees, local organizers volunteer their time and expertise to help lead North Star Fund’s grantmaking and governance. From a modest committee of a few activists and a couple of staff members, our grantmaking has now grown to include three major priorities: organizing in New York City, Black-Led organizing, and most recently, organizing in Hudson Valley. Now with three years of grantmaking in Hudson Valley, the Hudson Valley Program Officer will continue and grow North Star Fund’s commitment to provide holistic support to emerging organizations building power in low-income communities and communities of color.
The Hudson Valley Program Officer will facilitate our activist-led grantmaking and capacity building programs in the Hudson Valley, as well as work with the full program team to design and facilitate trainings and grantmaking in New York City. The ideal candidate will be an experienced organizer and facilitator with a proven track record of managing logistics. This position will report to the Deputy Director and will work in the Hudson Valley three days a week and in New York City two days a week.
