The Position

Report to: Campaigns Manager 

This position would provide support to the campaign manager on Teens for Jeans, one of the organization?s largest campaigns. has partnered with Aropostale to run the largest blue jean drive in the country.  Almost 40% of people experiencing homelessness in the United States are under 18. One item they commonly request in homeless shelters is a pair of jeans. Why? Jeans are comfortable in any season and can be worn multiple times between washes. Plus, for a teenager without many belongings, wearing a pair of jeans can provide a sense of normalcy.

Over the last several years, DoSomething members like you have collected over 5 million pairs of jeans for homeless shelters around the country. One year, we donated enough to clothe half of all US youth in homeless shelters. Welcome to the largest youth-led denim drive ever.

For the campaign to work, each store in the U.S. needs to be matched with a local shelter or charity that serves young people. The shelter outreach assistant would manage the creation and organization of a charity partner database. In the past, we worked with over 1,000 shelters.
