Job Description

Oxfam America Action Corps is recruiting in Kansas City!

Oxfam America, an international relief and development organization, invites you to join the Oxfam Action Corps, an exciting effort to cultivate grassroots leaders and political change. This is a chance to fight global hunger and advocate in your community on behalf of millions worldwide!

Free spaces are available in the April 13-16, 2013 training – apply now if:

  • You are concerned that the people who grow the world’s food—many of whom are women—cannot afford to feed their own families  And that one in eight people goes to bed hungry every night even though the world produces enough food for everybody.
  • You want to take action in your city to achieve policies to sustainably feed a growing population and empower poor people to earn a living, feed their families, and thrive.
  • You are willing to reach out to others in your community to hold governments and businesses accountable for the impact of their policies and practices on the environment and global food security.

Oxfam Action Corps volunteers work closely with Oxfam staff to engage their community and elected officials. We will provide training and support throughout a one-year time commitment.  You’ll meet amazing activists, build community, and drive political solutions.

Here is what previous Oxfam Action Corps volunteers said:
