To Apply

We’ll be hiring on a rolling basis until the election. To get started, use this google form to sign up — seriously, it takes just 2 minutes to fill out! Someone from our team will reach out with next steps. No phone calls please. 

About the Position  

We’re looking for part-time phone-bankers who will drive calls to young people across the state until election day! We’re looking for folks who are enthusiastic about organizing young people and committed to protecting abortion access here in Colorado. You will play a critical role in mobilizing our generation toward progressive change and making sure that young people’s voices are heard by working on the 2020 election. If you can commit to making calls every week — whether it’s 5 hours or 30 hours, please sign up

This position is completely remote—but if you’d like to take part in any in-person organizing this election (including campus or door-to-door canvassing), let us know when you sign up! 

About New Era

New Era is the leading voice for young people in Colorado politics and one of the most effective youth civic engagement organizations in the country. We work to reinvent politics for young people, mobilizing and empowering a new generation to participate in our democracy to advance progressive change. We’ve registered 200,000 young people to vote and driven record young voter turnout. We organize to advance economic justice, abortion rights, climate action, and election access. Along the way, we’ve passed student debt relief and young voter access legislation, made two viral videos (This Is Why We Vote; Campaign for Local Power), and eaten ~1 million pizzas. 

We are early on a journey to embed equity and inclusion in our organization’s day-to-day and DNA, and to transform into a truly anti-racist organization. For us, this means working to authentically centering the experiences and leadership of young people of color in our program work; dismantling white supremacy within our organizational systems, policies and culture, and rebuilding anew; and ensuring that we have a thriving, diverse team of staff and board members advancing our mission. We expect all staff to engage enthusiastically in this work.

Our team is deeply dedicated to social change, and takes the work very seriously—but not ourselves. We’ll never miss an opportunity to get a zoomed-in screenshot of you making a weird face in a group photo (and turn it into a Slack emoji) and we hope you have an HBO login to share. We truly believe in the power of young people. Get to know us: Our website | Our Facebook | Instagram | Twitter
