Apply Now for Open Gov Hub’s Community Catalyst Program!

Are you eager to join a community of leading nonprofits (NGOs) and change makers in international development and other fields, working to help empower citizens and make governments more transparent, accountable, and responsive around the world?

Can you work part-time (about 10-12 hours per week) this Fall (September-December) to support our unique shared workspace and collaborative community?

If so, we invite you to apply for our Community Catalyst Program!

What You Would Do

We are looking for help to keep our world-class coworking space running smoothly on a daily basis. This includes receiving visitors (average 1,000+/month), supporting events via communications and logistics, offering high-quality customer service support to staff on issues, and performing other daily tasks like distributing mail, keeping supplies stocked, and keeping the Hub sparkly clean.

About 85% of your work will be operations/office management, and 15% will be community building: you will make connections between people and ideas across our network of 45 organizations and 300 people, you will work on a long-term project related to topics like open data, combating closing civic space, and strengthening democracies around the world, and you will rapidly grow your skills and professional network.

What You Would Get

This is a work-trade program; the work is unpaid and in exchange for your time you will receive a free hot desk membership which is a $305 per month value. This gives you 24/7 access to our workspace and meeting spaces and full access to our wide range of Hub events and activities happening almost every day, including members-only workshops, working groups, movie nights and more. As a Catalyst, you’ll also get free access to our building’s newly renovated gym, free twice weekly yoga classes, and tenant lounge (with ping pong, pool, air hockey, and more).

Visit and apply by Friday, August 30th for our Fall cohort!

Open Gov Hub is a dynamic meeting place that supports more open, transparent and accountable governments and civic participation around the world.
