Canopy Child Advocacy Center Community Outreach VISTA
This VISTA’s role will be to work with Canopy staff and partners to create and implement a website and social media strategy and build social media audiences that will last and continue to grow even after they are no longer working with Canopy. Key activities include developing best practices, such as campaign schedules, content calendars, and updating and maintaining Canopy website structure. By creating and building these improved communication methods and mediums residents who desperately need the services we provide will have increased knowledge about and access to resources that will help reduce poverty and empower communities. By increasing our partners and partnerships with the community the result will be increased resources, services, and overall access for our most vulnerable and impoverished population, children/youth. Increased access will lead to a decrease in their experience of poverty. Presently, there are only 34 of the 58 total suburbs in Cuyahoga County that are familiar with Canopy. The scope of work will build on each year’s previous progress in creating, building, and managing new partnerships and increasing our community awareness opportunities. Initial work will include research and relationship/opportunity creation, the next phase will be integration, and then management.
