Social Media Volunteer Description

ICA-USA uses a variety of web platforms, including the ICA-USA website, ICA facebook, ICA twitter, and acclerate77 and CSLN facebook pages. We’re in need of a strategy to optimize social media posting that can be carried out by staff after an intern’s term of service. Specific tasks include:

  • Identify opportunities to boost page views and reach of posts on social media

  • Create recommendations or posting guidelines for future postings

  • Debrief staff on findings and lead a 'training’ on how to implement the recommendations

Participants will gain:

  • Experience in using social media strategically
  • Exposure to a variety of promotional channels
  • Enhanced writing and web management skills
  • Example of collaborative program implementation

Example of our programming:
Accelerating Sustainable Initiatives in Chicago's 77 Community Areas, known in short as accelerate77.

Community-based sustainability initiatives are taking place across the metropolitan area of Chicago. These, however, are often relatively isolated activities with limited interaction between them. Though many organizations, foundations, companies, and government agencies have programs and resources to assist local sustainability efforts, many communities are unaware of these opportunities or unfamiliar with ways to access them.

Our underlying strategy is to IDENTIFY current sustainability initiatives in all of Chicago’s 77 community areas; CONNECT them with one another to inspire new ideas, practices, self-consciousness and motivation through peer interchange; and COLLABORATE with residents in systematic learning, planning, and collective action.
