Current Job Openings
Enough is a project of the New Venture Fund, a 501(c)(3) public charity that incubates new and innovative public-interest projects and grant-making programs. Founded in 2007, Enough focuses primarily on crises in Sudan, South Sudan, eastern Congo, and areas of Africa affected by the Lord’s Resistance Army. Enough seeks to build leverage for peace and justice in Africa by helping to create real consequences for the perpetrators and facilitators of genocide and other mass atrocities. Enough aims to counter rights-abusing armed groups and violent kleptocratic regimes that are fueled by grand corruption, transnational crime and terror, and the pillaging and trafficking of minerals, ivory, diamonds, and other natural resources. Enough conducts field research in conflict zones, develops and advocates for policy recommendations, supports social movements in affected countries, and mobilizes public campaigns.
Educational Outreach Associate, Enough Project
Reporting to the Director of Advocacy and Impact Strategy, this position is responsible for coordinating offline community engagement work for Enough’s student-based campaign initiatives, in particular advocacy efforts related to the film The Good Lie, to raise awareness and understanding and directly influence decision makers to achieve meaningful policy change to end genocide and crimes against humanity. The Good Lie is a Warner Bros film which depicts the shared experiences of several of the "Lost Boys and Girls of Sudan" during the second Sudanese civil war and is a powerful point of entry into the story of peace and conflict in South Sudan. The Educational Outreach Associate will work under the supervision of the Director of Advocacy and in close collaboration with Enough Project advocacy, policy, and communications staff to use the film to spread awareness and mobilize targeted public action. This is a position requiring organizing, event planning, and advocacy experience and familiarity with human rights issues. Knowledge of international affairs and Africa as well as experience working with students is preferred. Note: this is a 1-year pilot position with possibility for extension.
