TTF is hiring for two positions through the AmeriCorps VISTA progam — a communications assistant and an educator — to begin this August. We hope you will share these postings with your networks. If you have questions, please contact Katie Donnelly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Communications Assistant will help to engage community members as watershed stewards through use of communications tools, including but not limited to social media, grassroots campaigns, press releases and printed materials. The Communications Assistant will expand TTF’s public presence by growing the organizational email contact list, tracking stakeholders who do not have email access and develop new methods to reach them, maintain and improve a dynamic social media presence and website, design targeted print materials, write press releases and create monthly newsletter content.

The Educator will work with businesses, community organizations, schools and existing TTF partners to provide education and service-learning opportunities related to watershed issues and stormwater management. The goal of the Educator is to provide stormwater management and watershed education and to promote clean water practices through a series of lessons, trainings and stewardship activities. Once the VISTA has become familiar with stormwater management, watershed education, neighborhood issues, lesson planning and event coordination, s/he will begin to make connections with businesses, community organizations, schools and partners in the watershed. S/he will have the opportunity to draft a year long education/service-learning plan as well as organize and lead watershed presentations and workshops for new and existing partners. Apply online here.
