Job Description

PAN runs various vegan pledge programs in cities across the country. The Vegan Pledge program guides people through 30 days of being vegan with the program’s hands-on support. This support includes five weekly meetings consisting of cooking demonstrations, speakers addressing environmental, ethical, health, and practical issues, a mentor (experienced vegan), optional social events for even more support, and an incredible care package to make 30 days of being vegan that much easier. The program is entirely free for participants.

PAN needs a vegan pledge coordinator for its New York City Vegan Pledge program, which will take place in Fall of 2019. Ideally, the program will have 30 participants. The coordinator will be required to help organize the pledge program, assemble guest speakers, coordinate volunteers, promote the program (by hanging flyers, posting in online forums, getting press about it, etc.), assemble care packages, organize food that is served at each program, attend all five weekly meetings, run the meetings (introduce the speaker, make sure the speaker abides by time restraints, make sure food is prepared and ready, etc.), as well as set up prior and clean up after the meetings. PAN will supply the necessary capital to support the coordinator’s endeavors, with prior approval, as well as donated vegan items for the care packages.

Job qualifications include:

· Vegan for at least one year

· Lives in or near New York City

· Experience with grass roots or nonprofit organizations
