AMP Global Youth amplifies the power of youth to design and demand our shared future. Founded by students at Yale after 9/11, we have reached tens of thousands of global youth in the past 20 years through our global leadership workshops, campus events, national and international conferences, and more.
The Network Coordinator is a central role on our leadership team, leading our programmatic work with our youth network, including coordinating our annual youth conference, campaigns, the youth visionaries awards, and many special projects. This is an exciting opportunity to have a big impact on the rapid growth and expansion of our work, while honing leadership, organizing, communications, and advocacy skills. This position is most appropriate for someone who identifies as a student (high school or older) or youth.
- Global Scholar: The Coordinator will support AMP’s summer leadership accelerator, Global Scholar, through playing a key role in program planning, recruitment, and delivery. This includes inviting speakers, screening applications, and helping design the learning experience (including many new workshops coming online in 2022). The Coordinator will serve in a key program support role during the summer workshops.
- Power Up Conference: The Coordinator will support AMP’s team of Student Fellows to plan and deliver the annual Power Up Conference, a two-day, youth-run, virtual (in 2022, possibly in DC in 2023) conference to equip students with the skills and connections to take bold action. In 2022, the Power Up focuses on Climate Justice.
- Youth Visionary Awards: The Coordinator will oversee the Youth Visionary Awards, which highlights those who exemplify the creative, bold and visionary leadership of youth tackling our greatest global challenges. The Coordinator will oversee the award nomination, selection, and promotion process.
- Social Media: The Coordinator will help ensure our social media content, presence, and flow is strong, engaging and representative of our brand. This might include coaching other team members, as well as creating and scheduling content.
- Other Special Projects: As AMP programming continues to expand, the Coordinator will support special efforts like our strategic planning process (winter 2021-2022), new program development (for spring and summer 2022 programming), and more.
- Administrative and General Support: Alongside the full team, the Coordinator will contribute regular hours to helping drive forward our network in a general sense, including expanding our contact lists, supporting social media and outreach tasks, fundraising, and more.
Required of Applicants:
- Identify as a student or youth, at any level. Currently, our network leaders are high school, college, and graduate students.

- Strong interest in global issues, international affairs, and/or youth organizing. Successful applicants should be excited and believe in the power of youth to impact our world.
- Independent worker, reliable, self-starter, and comfortable in a virtual workplace. The Coordinator will work with youth from around the world and manage projects in a quick-moving, virtual space.
