Job Summary

We are looking to hire creative, innovative, and problem-solving students to help us develop relevant educational content directed toward those who may be causing harm* in their relationships.

Most educational programs related to dating and sexual violence focus on teaching people how not to get harmed, rather than how not to cause harm. We are trying to turn this on its head – why don’t we ever talk to the people causing the harm, intentionally or unintentionally? How do we engage in honest dialogue about blurred or gray areas of relationships?

*harm = behaviors that intentionally or unintentionally hurt another person; in this case, we are especially focusing on hurt in romantic or sexual ways

Responsibilities

As a member of this team, you will engage in the following tasks:

● Read articles, watch documentaries, and listen to podcasts to better understand what “harmful behavior” is;

● Engage in personal reflection to understand your identities and your relationship to harmful behaviors;

● Explore how safety, dating, and relationships vary by identity and community (i.e., students of color, LGBT students, students with disabilities);

● Seek out relevant and engaging material related to exploring sexuality and relationships related to a variety of communities and identities;

● Engage in market research with college students to determine the most effective ways to reach them;

● Discuss with a team of content creators what information is relevant for college students who may unknowingly engage in harmful behavior;

● Design and share relevant in-person and digital content for people to access both publicly and privately to better understand their relationship to harm (e.g., videos people can watch on their own; social media campaigns people may engage with)

Minimum Qualifications

We are specifically looking for people who do NOT have previous experience in this area – we want fresh ideas and perspectives from people who care about this issue, but haven’t previously thought of themselves as “qualified.” We also seek to work with people who are creative and like to think about innovative solutions to complex problems!
