Amplify the voices of young people to equip caring adults to care better.
The Springtide team is made of people who are passionate about how young people are exploring and engaging with religion, spirituality, and belief.
Our work is informed by a diverse set of voices including staff, a Research Advisory Board, and the Springtide Ambassadors. We live our mission by intentionally including young people’s involvement throughout the organization.
Our team is fully remote and work from home. We coordinate work across the United States using Microsoft Teams as our “office.” Our excellent IT team provides robust support so everyone can do their best work. We gather in-person several times each year for critical meetings with travel paid for by the organization.
Writer in Residence
The Springtide Writer in Residence is 9-month appointment designed to nurture and encourage aspiring writers through one-on-one mentoring, workshopping and feedback, prompts and assignments, and opportunities for skill-building, bylines, networking, and hands-on experience in publishing and production. Among other opportunities, this residency explores and enhances competencies in data and report writing, news and blog writing, reflective and essay writing, and newsletter and copywriting. In addition to the prompts and work assigned by Springtide, the Writer in Residence will propose a residency-long project and work with their mentor to outline, draft, and finalize a work.
