VIEW JOBS 8/10/2019 12:00:00 AM 2019-11-08T00:00 The Outreach Specialist is a unique AmeriCorps position with EarthCorps. While this position works to implement volunteer events as part of the EarthCorps Volunteer (ECV) program, their primary project throughout the year will be helping to support a new partnership with the Black Farmers Collective (BFC). BFC is a group of Black food system professionals working to develop an urban farm and innovation center called YES Farm. The goal of YES Farm is to improve community health, both mental and physical, by growing food and rooting an African American presence in a gentrifying Central District in Seattle. This position would be working closely with BFC to support volunteer recruitment, manage volunteer projects, and implement targeted community outreach and engagement for YES Farm. In addition to supporting YES Farm, this position will spend a significant amount of time working with the ECV team to help support other EarthCorps volunteer projects as well. For both YES Farm and EarthCorps responsibilities, this position offers a good mix of working in an office and leading volunteers in the field. Office tasks include using online tools to attract and track community volunteers, designing outreach materials and implementing outreach plans, and targeted recruitment for community volunteer events. Field work includes onsite leadership of volunteers of all ages, invasive plant removal, native plant installation, urban farm development, maintaining tools and equipment, and completing additional non-volunteer field projects with other crew members on an occasional basis. This position is supervised by the Volunteer Program Manager and works closely with the BFC managing Director of the YES Farm project. The position is offered through the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS). As such, all applicants must meet the requirements to become an AmeriCorps member and abide by AmeriCorps policies. Terms : None Service Areas : Community Outreach , Environment .
