Public Relations Volunteer
The Guyana Economic Development Trust
After several years of building our international program, we seek to engage members of the Caribbean diaspora and friends in our work. To do that, we seek to raise awareness of our programs and their benefits in cities around the U.S. with significant Caribbean populations (New York/New Jersey/Connecticut-metro area, Washington, DC-Maryland. Miami-Dade, Atlanta).
We are looking for volunteers with experience and/or strong interest in public relations wishing to give back by helping our nonprofit organization to:
- Develop PR strategies and campaigns for the launch of a new program
- Prepare press releases and promotional material related to new and existing programs
- Build positive relationships with media and the public
- Organize PR events (e.g. press introductory Zoom calls)
- Seek opportunities for partnerships, sponsorship, and advertising
If you are creative, have experience supporting media relations (online, broadcast and/or print), and possess a background in researching, writing and editing publications), we would absolutely love to hear from you.
