Social Media & Marketing Volunteer

1000 Fountains is dedicated to improving public health, and combating climate change and environmental pollution through rapid and comprehensive installation of free public water fountains. It is our goal to install 1000 drinking fountains in San Francisco in the next decade as an alternative to single-use plastic bottles. We see a future where everyone in an urban area can walk out their door and never worry about accessing safe, free, great-tasting water, anywhere, anytime. Also, by building and maintaining a vast network of drinking fountains across cities, we can make single-use plastic water bottles a thing of the past.

Currently the project is in a start-up phase and is seeking a few motivated volunteers to help with social media and outreach to aligned groups in order to increase awareness of the campaign, invite the public to support the project, and pave the way for the next phase of our growth - installation of the fountains throughout the city. We are looking for volunteers who are genuinely excited by the mission of the project and can take on tasks with creative initiative and ownership. These volunteer positions average 5-8 hours a week and will work in collaboration with the Director and consultants as needed.

Duties will include:

Social Media Management:

Required: Create engaging social media content with weekly postings to Facebook, Linked In, Twitter, and Instagram.

Preferred: Develop and implement thoughtful and strategic social media campaigns. Develop a content calendar on weekly and monthly basis to update Director. Monitor analytics and report on successes and pivots based on reporting.

Marketing & Outreach:

Required: Research and pursue appropriate media opportunities including, public events, corporate giving days, speaking opportunities, radio and print contributions and other relevant public education and marketing events.

Preferred: Speak with local news outlets about the project and develop relevant collateral material for outreach.

These positions require self-motivated, outgoing, and organized candidates who can excel at taking on new projects, think outside the box, and be advocates for 1000 Fountains’ mission. These candidates will also need to have their own computer, Internet availability and phone.
