Community Engagement & Events Coordinator VISTA
Help facilitate community connections by doing outreach in local communities, coordinating volunteers, and organizing various HIP events. This position will also help with external communications to keep all stakeholders engaged through newsletters and social media. HIP operates in a neighborhood in Seattle that has been identified as having low access to opportunities and high displacement risk due to gentrification. The most recent 2020 census identifies the Lake City and Northgate neighborhoods, where most of HIP’s program participants reside, as some of the most diverse neighborhoods in Seattle. This VISTA project fights poverty by connecting underserved populations with supplemental food resources and nutrition education. This helps families stretch their dollars and live healthier lives with fewer resources being spent on healthcare. This project also helps build community by creating more spaces for BIPOC communities to gather, celebrate, and share resources.¿

Member Duties : Coordinate volunteers by recruiting, orientating, assigning projects, and building volunteer relationships through one-on-one interactions, monthly newsletters, and other social media channels. Lead various outreach events and community celebrations that HIP participates in, including HIP’s Community Appreciation Event, Lake City Summer Festival, End-of-Summer Festival, Pumpkin Palooza, and Winter Fest. These outreach events will increase awareness of HIP’s services in the community and build capacity for HIP to reach out to more communities in need. Coordinate recreational and educational events for children, youth, and parents throughout the summer months in collaboration with HIP’s summer meals team. These activities will increase the participation of kids and families in HIP’s summer meals program, increase food security, and provide expanded access to educational activities to reduce learning loss during the summer months for children from low-income and BIPOC communities.¿
