U.S. Global Leadership Coalition - Veterans Outreach Manager

Washington, DC

The U.S. Global Leadership Coalition (USGLC) is seeking Veterans Outreach Manager to assist with the expansion of the veteran community outreach. The Veterans Outreach Manager will work with the Veterans Outreach Director and the National Outreach Team to recruit, engage, and mobilize members of USGLC’s Veterans for Smart Power initiative in our efforts to support U.S. global engagement through civilian-led development and diplomacy programs.

Veterans for Smart Power (VSP) is a nationwide network of veterans of all ages, ranks, and branches who believe in the importance of America’s non-military tools. VSP gives veterans a voice in foreign policy by equipping them with the tools they need to educate and inspire the American public and policymakers on the importance of a “smart power” approach to national security.


Educating/Engaging Veterans. The Manager will work directly with the Veterans Outreach Director in building a nationwide network of veterans to advance USGLC’s public policy agenda by organizing an active team of 50-100 veterans in each of USGLC’s 20-30 priority states and Washington, DC.

Veteran’s Leadership Council. The Manager will be responsible for assisting with the management of USGLC’s national Veteran’s Leadership Council, a group of two-to-three military veteran leaders from each of our priority states that work with the USGLC to implement our field activities. In addition, the Council includes approximately 15-20 veterans living in the D.C. area that are able and willing to participate in USGLC Washington-based activities.

Expanding Grassroots Online Community. Work to implement the strategy built by the Veterans Outreach Director to identify opportunities to expand USGLC’s online network of 30,000 veterans across the country, including creating a dynamic communications platform. Manager will be responsible for identifying opportunities to engage and expand online community presence.

Mobilizing Veteran Community. The Manager will be responsible for working with the Veterans Outreach Director to assist in mobilizing the veteran community to educate policymakers and the public about the importance of smart power. This includes logistics and planning of events, participating in in-district meetings, and potentially speaking at events, if necessary.

Effective Communications. The Manager will be responsible for assisting with the implementation of a communications strategy to educate and engage the USGLC veteran’s community. This will include populating the Veterans for Smart Power website, communication with veterans and education events, and a knack for social media engagement. Additionally, the Manager will assist the Veterans Outreach Director with a robust, content-filled, and action-driven schedule of e-communications to our nationwide Veterans for Smart Power network.


Bachelor’s degree in political science, public policy, international relations or another related field.

Familiarity & experience in an outreach role with the military/veteran community and/or military background.

Three to five years experience in a political campaign, issue-advocacy setting, or veteran advocacy organization.

Knowledge of international relations as well as a demonstrated ability to organize high-level individuals in advocacy efforts.

Ability to proactively engage prominent leaders in the political, business, faith-based, military, academic, and civic communities.

Outstanding public speaking, oral and written communication and networking skills.
