Prevent Blindness Texas is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to prevent blindness and preserve sight. We focus our efforts on children at risk of vision loss and on aging adults who are more at risk of age-related eye diseases. Our programs include:

  • Vision screenings for adults and children

  • Vision screener training for volunteers

  • Vouchers for free eye exams and glasses via our network of partnerships

As a Development and Marketing Coordinator VISTA, you will work closely with our development staff and play an integral role in setting our marketing and communication strategy. Your marketing and communication skills will help you seek out new opportunities for Prevent Blindness Texas to reach more people in the community at risk of vision loss, to develop strategic relationships and bring new and innovative ideas to our marketing communications, social media communications, and development activities. You will also assist in development by researching grants and learning to write grant proposals, and have the opportunity to learn special event management. Working with our donor management software, you will gain valuable nonprofit experience in donor management and cultivation. This is a great opportunity for you to work in a dynamic nonprofit organization that values innovation and values each team member.
