Social Media Volunteer
The Social Media Volunteer will assist the Assistant to the Executive Director (AED) with engaging the community through social media. STSG has an active Instagram and Facebook page, and a much less active Twitter page. The volunteer would be responsible for taking pictures and providing post ideas to the AED for approval. This position will require the volunteer to come to the transitional house to take the pictures and create plans with the AED. The shift scheduling will be done in accordance to both the AED's schedule and the volunteer's, will likely be 1-2 hours a week.

About STRAIGHT TALK SUPPORT GROUP
1101 N MANGUM ST, DURHAM, NC 27701, US
STSG's Mission is to be a voice of the community that listens, informs, supports and empowers families and friends of the incarcerated and returning citizens. We want to offer our residents at our transitional housing 360 degree care, that goes past providing housing, to help their reentry to society go as smoothly as possible.
Straight Talk Support Group was founded in 2013 as a nonprofit focused on supporting those whose loved ones are currently or were previously incarcerated. The main program of STSG at that time was our support groups for those loved ones. in 2017, STSG became a transitional house for men who have been released from prison. Now with a contract with the Department of Public Safety, STSG has a capacity for up to 18 men. A typical length of stay at STSG is 120 days, with three different stages of programming. STSG is dedicated to provide 360 degree support to the residents of the transitional house. That means we connect them with physical and mental health providers, substance use counseling, education opportunities, life skills education and more. Our goal is to help residents develop a strong foundation of care so that when they do transition from the program, they have the skills to continue living a healthy and successful lifestyle.
