Fellow, LA Social Media & Storytelling

Location: remote, must be based in LA

Reports to: Manager, Digital Communications 


About the Role

The time for education justice has arrived. After generations of racial inequity in schools, we have reached a moment where increased political will, community demand, and resources can lead to the reimagination of education - but it can only happen if we elevate the voices and changemaking ability of students of color. At Our Turn, we have a responsibility to stand at the vanguard of the fight, and to walk the talk in how we carry out the work. The Fellow, LA Social Media & Storytelling role will have a unique opportunity to build youth leader capacity and create a digital storytelling pipeline with local high school and/or college students. This work is essential to the growth and transformation of our LA coalition and future impact. 


Why Work For Our Turn?

We approach our work with the audacity of believing that students have the power to rewrite the rules of education in our country and the humility to know that thousands have come before us in this fight. We know that young people, especially BIPOC young people, have been shut out by decision makers who shape their educational experience and respond by providing transformational leadership development and grassroots organizing experience that flip the traditional power dynamic on its head. Our team is highly collaborative and works with urgency, passion, and — most importantly — a lot of joy. We create intentional spaces to build our relationships and set aside time to celebrate milestones, problem-solve together, or just share our latest Our Turn swag! We are looking for purposeful, entrepreneurial social justice activists to join us and continue the fight for educational equity.
