Collegians For A Constructive Tomorrow is a national non-profit organization on the cutting edge of today’s environmental debate with chapters at universities across the United States. CFACT chapters are student-run campus group dedicated to addressing a variety of important public-interest issues.
CFACT strongly believes that most consumer and environmental problems are best met and overcome – not through excessive government regulation and bureaucracy – but rather, by unleashing the power of the capitalist free-enterprise system and the ingenuity of science and technology.
CFACT’s campus education program relies principally on a growing legion of collegiate activists and interns who reach multitudes of their fellow students with our exciting, upbeat message. Typical campus programs include: ecology awareness hikes and cleanup programs; field trips to local recycling centers, power plants, and other innovative industrial facilities; surveys that gauge ecological and economic awareness on campus; lectures with leading scientists, public policy experts, and free-market thinkers from around the world; campus outreach such as regular meetings and distribution of Fact Sheets and educational posters; and participation in annual Earth Day events.
The ideal candidate is a person with a college degree and 1-4 years of experience with grass roots organizing. The candidate must be able to understand CFACT’s issue set and be able and willing to teach it to others. The candidate should be a self-starter and enjoy working independently while setting and achieving ambitious goals for the programs. Experience in student leadership and supervision, such as serving as an RA in a residence hall, leader of a student organization, president of a Greek house, captain of a club team or other leadership position would be helpful in understanding the position.
The position will pay $25,000 and will include a health insurance stipend of $400/month, flex time hours, and 4 weeks of vacation. The position is virtual and can be located anywhere in the continental US. Travel will be extensive, at least 50% of the Coordinators time. Travel expenses are fully reimbursed by CFACT, but the applicant will need strong enough credit to carry a credit card for securing flights, hotels and rentals.
Applicants will be expected to:
- Work well under pressure
- Have the ability to multi-task
- Be organized
- Be able to work with students of diverse backgrounds
- Work independently
- Recruit, direct, and supervise dozens of campus leaders
