The Virginia Civic Engagement Table (VCET) is excited to announce the opening of a Program Coordinator position for the 2024 cycle with the opportunity to be hired permanently upon successful completion.
VCET is seeking a Program Coordinator to help support its programmatic work throughout the commonwealth of Virginia. Under the direction of the Leadership Development Manager, the Program Coordinator will be responsible for the logistics, administration, and implementation of the Virginia Progressive Leadership Program (VAPLP), and will provide support to the Civic Engagement team, especially on our Election Protection (EP) efforts.
From your start date through August, most of your time will be spent providing support for VAPLP. That program is a four-month experiential learning & training program from May to August that provides community leaders and organizers the knowledge, skills, and connections they need to strengthen their social movement strategy and work advancing equity & social justice in Virginia. Participants who attend the program engage in four weekends of learning and skill-building, each with its own area of focus: movement leadership, community organizing, storytelling + narrative, and money + capital.
As the VAPLP programming winds down in August, your work will pivot to supporting the Civic Engagement team’s Election Protection work under the direction of the Election Protection Manager, where the Program Coordinator will support Virginia’s pro-voter coalition through volunteer trainings, coordination and support of coalition and grassroots action, and assisting with volunteer recruitment and management as needed.
Who we are:
VCET is a statewide organization that serves a broad network of partners across the Commonwealth with a concentration in Northern Virginia, greater Richmond, and the Tidewater region.

Note: There are no formal education requirements for this position. People of all educational backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

Salary and Benefits
