Missouri Green Schools Communications & Marketing VISTA
Missouri Green Schools (MGS) is a new program that helps schools improve student health, reduce environmental impact, and develop a culture of sustainability. MGS creates a pathway for state and national recognition, and provides a variety of one-on-one services to support under-resourced schools in achieving “green” goals and earning recognition. Missouri Green Schools is managed by the Missouri Environmental Education Association and the U.S. Green Building Council-Missouri Gateway Chapter. The MGS Communications & Marketing VISTA will work in St. Louis but have the opportunity to interact with schools throughout the state. The MGS Communications & Marketing VISTA will receive thorough training in the program philosophy and support structures for schools as well as specialized instruction for the Communications & Marketing role. You’ll receive professional development training and networking opportunities throughout your year of service, and you’ll work with a team of 4 other VISTAs to utilize your unique skills, talents, and interests to help us launch this transformational program. In addition to program administration training, other opportunities for skill-building include website, social media, and database management; media relations training; and fundraising training. We are looking for a detail-oriented team member interested in visual and written communications who is passionate about kids and the environment to join our team. Candidates need a reliable vehicle or comfort with utilizing public transportation. MGS will provide some transportation cost assistance and grocery gift cards in addition to the VISTA living allowance. VISTAs will primarily work remotely, and will be provided with laptops during the one-year program service period of Fall 2021 through Fall 2022. For more information, please contact Lesli Moylan at
