SVT is seeking a Community Engagement Coordinator for the 2017-2018 TerraCorps service year. TerraCorps is part of the AmeriCorps program of national public service.
The CEC will assist SVT's Marketing and Outreach Program to deliver conservation outreach through SVT’s service area. The CEC will focus her/his efforts in approximately 6 to 8 communities to help build a stronger SVT and conservation presence.
Building upon work being done by the current CEC, the candidate will identify local community groups – both traditional and non-traditional partners – to help SVT make inroads into the community. To reach that diverse community audience, the CEC will employ a wide array of tactics, including social and traditional media and a variety of outdoor and indoor programming in the targeted communities that will appeal to a broad base of participants.
As an example, the CEC will lead programming in many of the communities in which SVT owns and manages conservation land. Many of these communities are ones where SVT is looking to further its reach. In some communities, this is an effort to build SVT’s name throughout the town, while in others, it is about engaging non-traditional partners to grow the organization’s presence. This includes reaching diverse audiences in many of the communities where there are multilingual residents.
