The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.
If you answered False (not all press is good press), we're off to a good start. We are looking for a volunteer Public Relations (PR) Manager on a part-time, as-needed basis. At Child & Family Connections, we believe that everyone thrives when the work is important, challenging, rewarding, and fun. So our volunteers are treated like staff, given the same level of responsibility (and accountability) and access to leadership and organizational information as part of our team. Our staff all work virtually, usually from the comfort of home or anywhere else conducive to doing great work. This allow us to dedicate nearly all of our funding to direct service programs, helping families at risk. The ability (and interest) in working independently is required. For the most part, you can make your own hours. Not a morning person? No problem! Prefer working from the comfort of your home or from your favorite coffee shop? You decide! The PR Manager will develop and execute a communications and media strategy to promote our pioneering and impactful programs while ensuring our hard-earned reputation locally and nationally as a thought-leader in the field of families and parental mental health. Fortunately, we have some strong material to work with: lots of conference presentations, keynotes, published articles, and more. The ability to tie PR into a social media strategy is strongly preferred. If this sounds like your type of opportunity and you'd like to help families in need, we'd love to hear from you. Please send your resume or CV and tell us a little about yourself. Requirements: Professional experience in Public Relations. College degree in Communications, Public Relations, Marketing, or similar. Experience or interest in the behavioral health field is helpful. Excellent communication skills, mature, ethical, responsible, and trustworthy. We're looking forward to doing great things together!
