re:power is a national capacity building and training organization for the progressive movement.
We’ve transformed into what we believe the movement needs: an expansion of what justice for our people looks like through a framework of inclusive politics. We’re offering a different narrative of who is a leader, who participates in politics, and what kind of world we are fighting for.
We work towards our vision of inclusive politics by offering training and strategic support to leaders and organizations across the progressive ecosystem, focusing on movements, civic engagement, and governance. In the last two years, re:power has trained over 4,000 organizers, candidates, campaigners, and leaders across our movement. 65% of our alumni identify as BIPOC as do the majority of our trainers, 61% are women, and 22% are youth (ages 18–24).
We are proud of what we’ve accomplished together in such a short time, and also know that in order for our communities to continue winning and driving positive change, we must keep building our skills, capacities and networks. At re:power, we thrive in this transformational work. Our nimble, bold, and energetic team is laser-focused on our mission to change the face of power in this country. Join us!
We are actively working towards building a culture firmly rooted in our values.
Our cultural values:
- Racial justice
- Dignity & worth of our people
- Communication & collaboration
- Accountability & excellence
As an organization that is rebuilding in its new vision and mission, we continuously engage our staff in helping build the ongoing practices and behaviors that support this culture.
Each of us has a unique role to fill in living out re:power’s mission. We’re a national team, with national impact, and we value the ability to be flexible in how we approach our individual and collective work. Our goal is to develop and sustain an organizational culture that makes it possible to do excellent work for ourselves and with our team as a whole.
At re:power, we value our people as much as our work (so: A LOT).
So we’ve built a pretty amazing organizational culture, one that’s grounded in doing exceptional work; prioritizing racial justice; investing in our teammates’ success just as much as our own; and living our full, whole lives as people who are going to be part of this movement for the long haul. Here are a few of the benefits we offer:
Health and Dental
re:power pays 90% of the premium costs for individuals, eligible domestic partners, and families for health and dental insurance coverage. We regularly hear from our team that both these plans and these terms are some of the most generous that folks have ever had, both within and outside of our movement.
Work From Anywhere
re:power is a work-from-anywhere organization. While we still maintain a small office in Minneapolis, most of our team works in states around the country and many members of our team work part-time or full-time from home. We believe in building the best possible crew—we’re a national nonprofit, with national impact, and supporting our staff to live wherever they choose, so that they can do their best work, is a key part of our culture.
Flexible Working Hours
While most of our staff work 9–5 each day, many members of our team organize their work schedules to accommodate the needs of their role along with their personal needs. This can mean starting and ending your workday earlier, or otherwise adjusting your work week to be sure you can achieve excellence in your role and deliver results while also balancing your personal and family priorities.
Flexible and Generous Time Off
Perhaps our most popular benefit, re:power offers one of the most flexible and generous paid time off policies in our sector (or any other). We do not cap the amount of paid time off staff can request during the year. Instead, we encourage staff to take the time they need to sustain themselves.
We know you’re already great by the time you join our crew. And we’re also going to commit time and money to further develop your skills and leadership for re:power and the movement. We have a dedicated staff development budget, and we’ll work with you to create a plan for how you want to grow, and then support you to get there.
