Redefy is an international by-youth, for-youth non-profit that seeks to empower schools and communities with the resources to become more inclusive and equitable. We accomplish this 4 ways: journalism, resource creation, chapters, and campaigns. Redefy's journalism empowers a diverse cohort of writers and editors to comment or report on current events, social justice issues, and problems they have witnessed or encountered as members of marginalized groups. Our social media team creates resources for young people looking to learn about the issues and get involved in creating change for our social medias and website. Redefy mobilizes our international web of school, community, statewide, or national chapters to create local movements for social equity. Finally, as a full team, we launch large-scale campaigns focused on solving singular social justice issues.
Redefy is a people-based organization that thrives from the passion of those within it; however, in order to equitably do so, payment for the individuals who give their time and energy to Redefy has become an important goal. As such, the Director of Finance will work towards securing different means of funding for Redefy, through grant-writing, merchandising, and fundraising.
Application due July 13th, 2021.
