Job Description
The Women’s Center for Gender Justice at John Jay College seeks a part-time College Assistant to develop and implement a range of programs for LGBTQ+ and gender-nonconforming students. The LGBTQ+ Coordinator will develop a programming calendar for the academic year, support the LGBTQ & Allies Student Club, plan campus events, and liaison with off-campus organizations to develop student resources. In addition, the College Assistant will coordinate JJay’s LGBTQ Taskforce, an advocacy group comprised of students, staff, and faculty committed to improving LGBTQ+ experiences on campus.

  • Implement programming that supports the LGBTQ+ student community, including organizing campus events, submitting facilities work orders, reserving campus spaces, and developing advertising materials.
  • Liaison with campus groups to survey and respond to LGBTQ+ and gender-nonconforming student needs.

The ideal candidate will have a self-starter attitude, will be able to work responsibly and independently after initial training, and will exhibit a strong commitment to LGBTQ+ rights and gender justice organizing, ideally with communities facing intersectional issues of race and class.

The candidate must be able to work with people from diverse backgrounds to foster an inclusive community for students, regardless of socioeconomic status, culture, religion, sexual orientation, gender expression, race, nationality, age, and ability.

  • Familiarity with LGBTQ+ community needs and resources.
  • Experience in designing promotional and informational materials.
  • Experience with social media outreach, such as Snapchat, Twitter, and Instagram.
