Seeking Volunteers

EPIC is seeking volunteers to support the growth of our non-profit organization in reaching out to a global audience to create and maintain relationships with supporters that sustain our mission of Caribbean conservation. Anticipated PR outcomes include increased number of social media followers, increases in the number of people on the EPIC email list, increases in the number of activities such as press releases, articles, and social media posts. Anticipated development outcomes include an increased number of donors, increased amount of funding, and established programs and procedures to maintain and nurture new and existing supporter relationships.

Volunteer candidates may request an approach that works best for them, however, the EPIC Team proposes the creation of a Working Group, that meets monthly for 90 minutes, to discuss and implement projects that achieve identified goals. Volunteers would participate in monthly meetings and work on projects between the meetings, engaging in tasks such as internet or phone research, drafting of a broad array of content, editing content created by others, and brainstorming with staff and volunteers on campaigns and promotions. EPIC requests a minimum of four hours per month, with a maximum commitment of up to ten hours per month.

Knowledge, Skills and Abilities

The ideal volunteer candidate will have the time and motivation to contribute their talents for 4-10 hours per month until the end of 2021. A passion for non-profit PR, marketing, fundraising, program and event creation and management are essential. Concern for, and interest in the Caribbean, nature, the outdoors, or the environment is highly desired. A strong interest in these topics or prior volunteer experience may substitute for professional experience. Desired skills and abilities include good verbal and written communication, ability to work well in a collaborative group setting, and ability to carry through with commitments in a timely manner.

Benefits

EPIC volunteers enjoy a productive, positive, and meaningful work environment where their ideas and experiences are valued, respected, and applied. No travel is required as all meetings and collaborations are conducted remotely. However, opportunities to travel to the Caribbean and experience exceptional outdoor activities are possible once the coronavirus pandemic has subsided. Gain valuable work experience and a new resume listing OR share your years of experience and continue your lifelong effort to effect positive, meaningful change.

Mission Statement

Protecting the Caribbean environment through research and community-based action.

Description

Environmental Protection in the Caribbean (EPIC) is non-profit organization registered as a 501(c)(3) in the United States and is a registered foundation in St. Maarten. The organization was established in 2000 with the mission to protect the Caribbean environment through research and community-based action. This mission is achieved through three core programs: 1) Conservation of Wetlands and Coastal Habitats 2) Songbirds as Environmental Indicators 3) Keystone Cays: Conservation of Key Offshore Islands.

When approaching projects at new sites, the group’s methodology typically begins with scientific research, scoping meetings, and building partnerships. EPIC can then formulate a plan for conducting outreach programs and, ultimately, community-based actions to protect and/or restore habitats.
