New Rural Project (NRP) is a non-partisan 501(c)(4) organization that engages young (18 - 40 years old) and historically marginalized residents in rural communities to amplify their voices through increased civic and electoral engagement. NRP works to eliminate barriers to engagement by listening to rural stakeholders and working together to develop community-driven solutions. NRP was co-founded by Cynthia Wallace and Helen Probst Mills in 2021. Both ran for office in rural North Carolina and saw that large numbers of registered and unregistered voters in rural communities simply did not vote.
Recognizing the significant impact of this on improving lives through the electoral process, they decided to tackle this issue head on. Our work is focused on the seven counties - Union, Anson, Richmond, Scotland, Robeson, Hoke and Moore - along the North Carolina border with South Carolina.
NRP is hiring a highly motivated Regional Organizer to promote its civic and electoral engagement programs in the focus counties of Union, Anson, and Richmond Counties. The job will require that the Regional Organizer lives in one of the focus counties and travels within the counties you support. The priority of this role is to ensure that grassroots leaders and community stakeholders are supported in driving long-term rural base-building work through civic and electoral engagement.
NRP is hiring a highly motivated part-time Administrative Assistant to run our administrative support functions. Responsibilities include basic bookkeeping, event support, merchandise and ordering support, social media/digital assistance, database management, monitoring email, scheduling and conducting appointments and meetings; and general office support. This position will work closely with the Executive
Director and senior leadership team.
