Sustainable Contra Costa is a nonprofit that educates, connects and inspires Contra Costa individuals and organizations to embrace a sustainable lifestyle. We are a community of citizens, educators, innovators, and organizations working together to create ecologically sustainable, economically vibrant, and socially just communities for all. Our programs and initiatives leverage the power of individual and community-wide daily actions to transform the way we interact with each other and the world around us.
We have an immediate volunteer opportunity for a few solid Education and Outreach Volunteers in the spring of 2022. We will be creating a variety of outreach efforts to promote the Cleaner Contra Costa Challenge, a mobilization campaign that inspires thousands of citizens and groups to take action to save water, grow food, conserve energy, reduce waste pollution, and build community. One of the main ways we connect with people about these actions is by setting up a table at a variety of street fairs, Earth Day festivals, farmer's markets and other public events to promote the Challenge. We distribute information and prizes to encourage folks to pledge a new action in their life, one that makes a positive difference for our planet and our local environment. In this way we "grow sustainability, one act at a time". You don't need to be an expert! For this tabling effort we pair up new volunteers with someone more experienced.
This volunteer could work remotely on their own computer when not attending planning meetings or providing direct outreach and event support. Hours and location are flexible, and volunteers must be comfortable structuring their own time. This work should take no more than a few hours a week. Volunteers may also have an opportunity to do writing, editing and research, as well as event production, if this is of interest.
Our volunteer positions provide on-the-job experience and substantial professional benefits including:
* Working with a unique local environmental non-profit organization and with fun, spirited
and dedicated team members who really appreciate each other
* Connecting with innovative and pioneering leaders in the expanding field of sustainability
* Improving outreach, education and communication skills
* Valuable job networking
* Community service credit for school, if desired
* Letter of recommendation/professional reference, based on performance
TO APPLY FOR THIS POSITION: send your resume and a cover letter to: email@example.com, with EDUCATION/OUTREACH VOLUNTEER APPLICATION as the subject. Please indicate in your cover letter why this position suits your skills, interests and experience.
