Part-Time Paid Opportunities

Hill Relations Coordinator

America’s Future Foundation is the premier network of young professional leaders for liberty. We work, manage, and play like a startup company with a small staff and big plans for changing the world.

We’re looking to add a talented, enterprising individual to our part-time staff – someone who can make things happen without micro-management and who is looking to broaden their Capitol Hill network while gaining valuable program management skills.

This position is a 6 month contractor position with the potential for renewal after an evaluation of the program. The baseline compensation is $150 per month with an opportunity for a bonus of $200 per project upon successful completion of mutually agreed upon goals.

Goals/Responsibilities include:

  • Identifying professional development gaps on Capitol Hill for young staffers (LAs, LCs, & staff assistants)
  • Creating three projects/events that fill professional development gaps for a Hill audience
  • Managing the logistics of those events/projects including but not limited to: room reservation, marketing, inviting any speakers, compilation of data, and evaluation
  • Gaining new DC AFF members as a result of the fantastic projects you have implemented

AFF is interested in rewarding achievement of goals rather than tasks. We value experimenting with what works and learning from our mistakes – we’re into starting small and building on great ideas.

 

Skills/Requirements:

  • An entrepreneurial attitude
  • Ability to network with Hill staff and knowledge of the culture of Capitol Hill
  • Experience on the Hill
  • Ability to meet deadlines and communicate progress
  • Problem solving capabilities with ideas on how to achieve the goals above

 

If you think you fit the description and you’re interested in a role in which you can really build a program, add skills to your resume, and make a little money on the side, please send a resume and an explanation of 1) why you want to be AFF’s Hill Relations Coordinator and 2) what ideas you have for this position to Brit Vorreiter at brit@americasfuture.org. Any application that does not include all of these materials will not be considered.

This position will start mid-February.

Getting Involved with AFF

The opportunities provided through America’s Future Foundation give me the chance to hone skills and expand my professional network in a way I can’t during the course of my day job. In addition to working with an exciting group of colleagues to brainstorm interesting topics and schedule events, I’m able to take ownership of the issue of my choice. AFF allows me to research and work in a policy space I would not typically get to enjoy, making it an incredibly stimulating and rewarding experience. I know it will serve me well throughout my career, and I’m incredibly grateful to AFF for the opportunity to contribute!
