At Hip Hop For Change, we provide a wage of $16-19 an hour for our grassroots team members who are the heart of this organization. Often the first time people hear about us is by meeting one of our amazing staff out there in communities around the Bay Area. We're a close-knit, high performing team that exemplifies what it means for an office to be diverse and supportive for all who wish to join a movement.
Investing in our staff is not just a smart thing to do, but it's the right thing to do. We regularly focus on team development by training our staff in different methods of grassroots activism, de-escalation, meditation, and yoga. While our work is serious, we always try to focus on fun through team-building exercises, educational workshops, and studying history.
On Wednesdays, we offer our time to local organizations fighting to support marginalized communities. Our staff volunteer for organizations like Planting Justice, Superstars Literacy, and PhatBeets Produce in order to involve themselves deeper into the community. Through this activism, we create deeper connections in our community and provide opportunities for our employees to feel a stronger sense of purpose with their work.
"Working for HipHopForChange created a positive space in my daily life. The individuals who are a part of this organization can be defined as activists, but that doesn't begin to sum up their goals and aspirations. Working for HipHopForChange, you are able to learn and speak about social issues that are happening around the world. Unlike a corporate setting, you are able to speak freely about new age ideas, and not shunned for not fitting into a mold. My experience with Hip Hop For Change allowed me to believe in imagination and hope for our youth. This is a movement that will prosper due to their voluntary outreach in the community and the voice that carries along with their values."
OUR GRASSROOTS PROGRAM IS CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION AND WE ARE NOT HIRING AT THE MOMENT. OUR APOLOGIES.
Due to COVID-19, we were forced to let go of our entire grassroots team, leaving us with just a 7 person leadership team to run and fundraise for the entire organization. However, the COVID-19 stay-at-home order has given us time to redesign our grassroots program to make it more empowering for future grassroots canvassers. While we are not accepting job applications at the moment, we will be in the next coming months.
