ABOUT THE ROLE

The Millennial Action Project is immediately seeking to hire a State Caucus Network Director. This individual will report to the Vice President of Programs, and will primarily be tasked with strategic engagement of State Future Caucuses and State Future Caucus Network (SFCN) members. This individual will continue to lead programming to support each individual State Future Caucus’s success, as well as oversee strategic initiatives to connect the State Future Caucus Network across state lines.

ABOUT MILLENNIAL ACTION PROJECT

Millennial Action Project (MAP) is a national, nonpartisan nonprofit whose vision is to create a political environment where bipartisan cooperation is restored as our nation’s governing paradigm and our elected leaders work more closely together to address the challenges we face as a generation and as a nation.

Defined by our diversity, technology, pragmatism, and collaborative attitude, millennials refuse to see the world in traditional ideological terms. As a result, this rising generation holds great promise to revitalize our nation’s politics with innovative approaches to policy and post-partisan leadership.

Seven years ago, MAP organized the nation’s first and only bipartisan caucus for young members of Congress, the Congressional Future Caucus, forming a unique entrepreneurial governing environment for the next generation of leaders. MAP has since scaled this model into the states—currently in 30 state legislatures—to create pragmatic common ground on future-oriented issues. Discover more about MAP at www.millennialaction.org.
