We amplify the story, voice and power of global youth. Through training programs, blogging, social media and more, we're empowering the next generation of young global leaders. We believe that our generation has an immense amount of power and potential to change the playing field at every level.

We are an entirely virtual, volunteer community. All of our work is done by youth based across the country and working on volunteer teams.

Founded as Americans for Informed Democracy in 2002, this year we rebranded as AMP Global Youth. We're growing quickly, and need amazing team members to help us do all of this. Will you join us?

The Project Coordinator supports our partnership in a groundbreaking virtual exchange program, connecting youth in the US and the Middle East.

  • CONTRIBUTING to program development, and collecting / synthesizing player feedback throughout the process. The exchange program is innovative and unique, and you'll be a valuable member of the team making sure it succeeds.

This is a part-time, six-month contract position (15-20 hours/week). Salary is consistent with an entry level nonprofit / campaign position. Applicants must be able to start immediately.
