CoF Children's Museum Community Outreach Coordinator
At the Fairbanks Children’s Museum, we provide children and families a safe space to interact and connect while developing crucial life skills. Through open-ended and self-directed play, they are encouraged to use critical thinking and their creativity is inspired. As a result of both familiar and unfamiliar social interactions, they begin learning about community building and cooperation. The museum has the broadest reach of any early childhood development agency in the Interior, seeing over 40,000 visitors each year. The Community Outreach Coordinator VISTA will develop sustainable plans and methods for the Fairbanks Children’s Museum to reach a larger swath of the Fairbanks population in order to better serve our community. This plan will include, but is not limited to, virtual programming, programs within the community, advertising and social media plans, and funding opportunities. This is a volunteer service position with a living allowance of $1,333 per month and an annual education award of $6,345.
