Our Team members do everything, from organizing events like our annual conference—selecting speakers, venues, and planning breaks—to working with schools, students, and teachers. We’re now accepting applications for students to be part of our Team.
Team members work on individual committees to organize [email protected] and our programs. Teams include…
Schools committee, who works with School Ambassadors and Student Leaders for the idea dialogues program, finds and secures [email protected] schools, and manages application and audience curation process.
Marketing committee, who works with partner Schools to market the event, collaborates with designers for asset development, manages social media and online presence, and attends social events to make connections and promote the organization.
Tech committee, who oversees account and system management of team platforms, collaborates with marketing to manage online presence, develops automations (bots) to accelerate team workflow, responds to technical inquiries posed by the team, and troubleshoots any technical issues.
Presenters committee, who find and contact speakers and performers, schedules interviews and auditions, helps curate ideas, and collaborates with speakers to develop speakers’ ideas.
Partners committee, who identify and secure potential partners, manage current partnerships, helps fundraise money, and manage team budget (finance manager).
Day of Event (DoE) committee, who oversees planning for the day-of (particularly transitions), manages communications between attendees and [email protected], plans for every facet of an attendee’s experience, secures and coordinates day-of volunteers, oversees event ticketing and registration, coordinates day-of logistics (including breaks and activities).
Time commitment will be 1–3 hours a week on average during the school year and around 5–10 a week during the summer; however, we’re always happy to work with Team members who have special circumstances. Team members don’t need to commute to Columbia; however, there will be certain events (like rehearsals) for which commuting will be necessary for certain Team members.
