Families for Depression Awareness

  • 6 people are interested

Our virtual event needs a coordinator! We are planning our annual Evening of Hope and Discovery event, scheduled for October 22, 2021, and we are looking for an event coordinator. We held our event virtually last year and it was a success. We are looking for someone who can build on that success and bring fresh ideas for this year. This volunteer will have the support of a committee and Families for Depression Awareness staff members. This opportunity is great for someone who desires more experience in event planning and coordination.

Please reply with information about your experience and why you are interested in this opportunity. You will be contacted for an interview.
