Do you want to use your expertise to help underserved entrepreneurs build and sustain their thriving businesses?
Our Market Access Program pairs entrepreneurs with pro bono marketing and advertising experts like you for project-based mentoring opportunities that address key Marketing challenges.
We are seeking both permanent and short-term Social Media volunteers to help our entrepreneurs outline appropriate social media channels, including goals and metrics for success..
We offer two types of volunteer opportunities for Social Media volunteers:
One Day Engagement (known as Consultations) Coordinate a "Volunteer Day" where we book a group of entrepreneurs according to a schedule that you select in advance. These are coordinated either in person for a given amount of time or through a themed phone-a-ton where we arrange a day for one-hour consultations. Consultations are based around our social media guideline document to help move the conversation and give entrepreneurs concrete information to move forward with. Time Commitment: These can range from 1 hour to a full 8 hour day, depending on your availability. Ideal candidates will be able to take on a few consultation days throughout the year.
Project-based Engagement Connect one-on-one with an entrepreneur to help them with a more robust social media plan. Our one-on-one engagements are project-based and limited in scope (meaning that after the project is completed, volunteers can choose another client or project to work on), though some volunteers develop an ongoing relationship with the client. Time Commitment: These interactions are flexible and done according to your schedule. Ideal candidates will always have a project that they would like to take on.
Next Steps: If you are interested in this opportunity and would like more information, please submit a volunteer interest form at bit.ly/startsmallthinkbig. We will be in touch with you to schedule an orientation call.
