The Marketing and Community Outreach Volunteer will focus on re-engaging Lock-Up participants into one of MDA’s signature fundraising programs. Lock-Ups have traditionally been unique social fundraising events for professionals. Participants are typically community leaders, business owners, top management and executives that work in the community where the event is being held. The role of the volunteer will be to speak with the Jailbird and transition them to another exciting MDA signature event.

The Marketing and Community Outreach Volunteer position is for talented individuals that possess the skills to network with individuals and assist with donor acquisition. This role is ideal for anyone studying Marketing, Sales, or Non-Profit management and will be a great asset for those looking to advance their career in this type of setting. Marketing and Community Outreach Volunteers can expect to have fun while striving to achieve individual and team goals in a small office, team based environment.
