Building Leadership And Community Knowledge
Community Outreach Coordinator responsibilities: Identify contacts, and perform direct/ongoing outreach efforts with community organizations, businesses, churches, schools, hospitals, healthcare providers, and government officials for the purpose of enlisting them in the organization's goal of enhancing the quality of life for youth. The intern would not only inform community "players" of the existence of the Youth Leadership initiatives, programs and its mission and services, he/she would be responsible for actively following-up with contacts and reporting back to the committee. These ongoing outreach efforts are designed to encourage participants to take specific measures within their own organizations that would contribute significantly to collaborative programs. All efforts are aimed at developing the potential of youth. The coordinator will need to attend mandatory monthly committee meetings to provide the group with updates on recent outreach efforts and to assist with the identification of community "players".
