Job, Internships, Facilitator Opportunities with Participatory Budgeting

This post was submitted by Josh Lerner of the Participatory Budgeting Project via the Add-to-Blog form.

There are several new job, internship, and volunteer opportunities with the participatory budgeting programs in New York City and Chicago. Participatory Budgeting is a democratic process in which community members directly decide how to spend part of a public budget. In New York, over 15,000 residents will decide how to spend around $12 million over the next year. In Chicago, over 3,000 residents will decide how to spend $5 million.

New opportunities to get involved include:

1) New York Community Engagement Lead Position

Community Voices Heard has just posted a 7-8 month community engagement job position to help support community engagement efforts for PBNYC, particularly with traditionally disenfranchised populations. Read more here.

Deadline: September 13, 2013, but CVH is looking to fill the position asap.

2) Volunteer Opportunity: Facilitation & Outreach Teams in NYC and Chicago

Do you have a couple of hours a month to give to your community? The Participatory Budgeting Project, the Great Cities Institute, and Community Voices Heard are looking for volunteers with Outreach and/or Facilitation skills to support Participatory Budgeting in New York City and Chicago. This is an excellent opportunity for individuals interested in honing their facilitation and outreach skills, learning more about city government, gaining experience engaging diverse community members, and contributing to real grassroots democracy.  Read more here.

Deadline: September 6, 2013
