The Special Events and Marketing VISTA will work primarily to build Storytime Village's capacity through special events that benefit underserved Kansas children from birth to age 8. Since its beginning in 2009, Storytime Village has worked to help the youngest in our communities thrive through partnerships that provide early childhood development, family engagement around reading and access to books.
Storytime Village, Inc. is a Kansas based children's literacy nonprofit organization. With the support of parents and the community, we inspire underserved children to read by providing them with free books and literacy resources. We recognize that, for children, books open doors to opportunities, new worlds, and experiences, and overall build their self-esteem.
For that reason, we strive to give every child in Kansas an opportunity for a better future through literacy. The Special Events and Marketing VISTA will support Storytime Village's annual fundraising efforts through event planning and marketing. Event support will include heading up two new events, the 2019 Literacy Ball and the Race for Literacy.
These two events are a major part of the fundraising efforts for Storytime Village's ten year anniversary. The VISTA member will also support the organization's other events including our Dia de Los Ninos/Libros- Hispanic Literacy Celebration, Hoops 4 Literacy, and Cookies with Santa. The VISTA member will also support the expansion of Storytime Village's marketing efforts which will include the restructure of our website, social media (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram), and develop a quarterly newsletter.
