Urban Rural Action is seeking a civic-minded Oregonian to be part of the volunteer Core Program Team (CPT) leading implementation of the new Uniting for Action on the Oregon Economy program in 2022. Building on a Corvallis workshop conducted in Nov 2021, we are organizing a nine-month, non-partisan initiative that brings people together to build relationships, strengthen collaboration skills, explore different views on economic issues, and work together to address economic challenges in Oregon.

The Uniting for Action on the Oregon Economy will follow three phases. During each phase, the program participants (Oregon Uniters) and community partners gather for mandatory planning, relationship-building, dialogue, and skill-building sessions. We'll also keep the cohort conversations going online throughout the program.

As part of a small Core Project Team, you will be responsible for implementation of the program. This will feature regular team meetings on Zoom and email communication to implement activities including those outlined below: ● Support recruitment of participants into the program ● Assist with recruitment of non-profit community implementing partners ● Assist with design and implementation of discrete projects with program participants and community partners. ● Facilitate aspects of Zoom gatherings with project cohort ● Participate in a Slack channel for asynchronous communication across the cohort ● Communicate externally about the program on UR Action’s website, social media, etc.

Compensation opportunities for facilitation support!
