Program Director, Resource Generation

Resource Generation (RG) is recruiting for a full-time Program Director to lead our national conferences, webinars, and political education materials. This is a remote position.

About us:

Resource Generation is a national multi-racial, membership-based organization mobilizing young people (age 18-35) with wealth and class privilege in the U.S. to become transformative leaders working towards the equitable distribution of wealth, land, and power. The broader Resource Generation community includes people of all ages and class backgrounds who support the role that young people with access to wealth play in social change. RG has 18 chapters in cities around the U.S., and our chapters engage in base-building, political education programming, giving circles, local and national campaigns, and building local organizational relationships. Resource Generation is proud to have 1100+ dues-paying members who collectively made $100 million in pledges to social justice movements in 2022. RG is 95% funded by our members.
