About the Role
City Community Leaders are the hosts for every program that enters their city. They work with the City Manager to ensure their accommodations are ready, they organize experiences, they curate community, and they’re the go-to for things to do or any issues that arise.
You’re already a great host. City Community Leaders are naturally great hosts, which means you were already playing the part before we found you. You’re constantly on the quest to meet new people and connect your massive network. It means that your friends and family turn to you to know how to spend their weekend, where to eat, and what’s going on in the underground scene. It means that you have a true love for your city and helping others experience it. [Key qualities: passion for people, passion for your city and country, natural leader/go-getter, well connected]
You think big and small. City Community Leaders come up with big, creative ideas for how to bring their city to life - whether that be finding 10+ Grandmas to teach Remotes how to cook, or lining up an opportunity for Remotes to spend a day inside a prison hearing the stories of prisoners. But they also know that every tiny detail matters, so transport is never late, accommodations are always comfortable, the workspace always has enough seats, and food is never lacking a vegetarian option. [Key qualities: organized, detail oriented, creative, requires little oversight]
People are your specialty. Local vendors? They love working with you. Other Remote Year team members? They love working with you. Remotes? They love being around you. City Community Leaders can effortlessly manage relationships, engage people, turn any problem into a solution, and light up any room they walk into. [Key qualities: present, engaging, enthusiastic, empathetic, and approachable]
