Students for Life of America

Status: Paid - Full Time

Description:

Overview of the Position 

As a part of the Pro-Life Generation, Students for Life of America is looking for a Campus Formation Coordinator (CFC). What sets Students for Life apart from other organizations is our full-time Field Team who travel daily in their respective regions visiting campuses to start, train, and mobilize Students for Life groups. When CFCs step onto a campus, they go beyond simply helping to establish a pro-life group. They create a lasting legacy that is transforming our nation toward a culture of life. 

The Campus Formation Coordinator serves both on the ground and behind the scenes, alongside Regional Coordinators (RCs), to increase the level of pro-life involvement at a grassroots level across multiple states. There are three key duties: 1) start new Students for Life groups, 2) turn inactive groups into higher quality groups, and 3) be willing and ready to serve as a substitute for RC duties if assistance is needed. CFCs will complete outreach on average, 3 days a week, working the remaining days remotely.  

It is important that all members of Students for Life of America’s (SFLA) Field Team be dedicated and flexible with the national mission in mind: to abolishing abortion. CFCs must be innovative, fast-moving, and gritty team-players, able to go above and beyond when needed.  

The Mid-Atlantic Campus Formation Coordinator will be based out of Fredericksburg, VA and work from our HQ, 1-2 days a week.
