About the Position

Reporting to the Organizing Director, the Bay Area Organizer will be part of an active team that builds support for programs and policies that build financial stability for low-income families.

  • Build an active base of support among community members and leaders, including CBOs and local governments. 
  • Increase awareness and utilization of GSO’s programs, tools and resources.
