registration and civic engagement. Four million Americans turn 18 every year, and the vast majority are eligible to register to vote while they are in high school. Yet no effective infrastructure exists to make sure that every eligible high school student receives encouragement and an equal opportunity to register to vote. The Civics Center addresses this challenge with ideas, education, and action. Effective collaboration with allied organizations and leaders is a key part of our work.
The Assistant Director of Outreach and Coalitions will play a critical role in building our collaborations with an emphasis on youth, community, educational, equity-oriented, and democracy-building groups and leaders. The work in 2021 will focus on Southern California, Arizona, and Pennsylvania and will expand to other regions and states as our capacity and staff increase in future years.
Under the supervision of the Associate Director, the responsibilities of the Assistant Director of Outreach and Coalitions include the following:
