Business Plan Developer for Exciting Motorsports Nonprofit
Feel the ground rumble under your feet as you go about doing good at one of the endless motorsports events Backroads of Appalachia has become known for in Eastern KY. Not only do you rub shoulders with other enthusiasts but you get to build your resume and experience at the same time. Backroads has truly grown by leaps and bounds as cities and locals clamor in hopes of becoming the next location for their events. Backroads caters to a variety of motorsports; motorcycles, hill climbing, rally racing, supercars with many other genres added every year. This is the world you will get to surround yourself with while performing good work for communities and individuals. Eastern Kentucky has been hard hit by the downturn of coal in recent times. So many communities that have used coal as their main industry for work have found themselves struggling to transition into more sustainable industries. Backroads is instrumental in this transformation by promoting tourism throughout the region and hosting nationally recognized motorsports events. As people from outside the state have come to see Eastern Kentucky and it’s warm, ready to work culture it has attracted not only dollars but permanent investments. The Business Developer VISTA will be instrumental in developing business plans for Backroads. For instance, you will get to research concepts like starting an action sport photography business or addiction recovery house and then develop relationships with agencies and businesses to help Backroads implement the business plans. Not only will you get the experience of starting small enterprises but you will get to make a real difference with those in addiction recovery and in the communities that Backroads serves! No matter what direction you are taking in your pursuit of business having these real world experiences starting and supporting small businesses will look incredible on a resume and may give you the wherewithal to start your own business in the future!
