Are you interested in sex positive education? Would you like to help change the state of sexuality education in the Newark, NJ community? Masakhane Center is looking for a few passionate board members to help us with our work. Masakhane is a youth driven organization providing community-based sexuality education in and around Newark, NJ. Masakhane’s anti-racist, pro-queer & pro-trans approach to sex-positive programming seeks to promote sexual liberation, including the right to pleasure, for marginalized communities.

Board members must be able to strongly advocate for our guiding principles.​ The Board of Directors is responsible for determining and supporting the mission of Masakhane Center and for raising funds necessary to carry out that mission. The Board sets policy and provides leadership and vision and is accountable for fiscal and strategic oversight. As enthusiastic ambassadors of Masakhane, board members are expected to be committed to and involved in our positive growth and development.

Board members should also be able to see the big picture needs of Masakhane and be willing to engage with the rest of the board in discussions about the organization’s financial well being, sustainability, personnel matters, support and evaluation of the Executive Director, and the overall growth and maintenance of Masakhane.

Do you think you have the background and connections to help Masakhane grow? Do you personally and professionally align with our mission and guiding principles? Then send your resume and cover letter to with the heading Board Membership. Our efforts to fill our board with a well-rounded membership is ongoing.
