Big Brothers Big Sisters Event Specialist VISTA
This Project will be fast paced and something exciting and new every day. Over the course of the year, we have four special events that our Development Team is responsible to execute and grow. The best way to grow funding is by keeping the donors you have. This Project is based around that principle and will allow for expanded growth once we have our annual givers secured. The growth of donors and funds is the goal of the Development Team, so that we can expand our program staff this year. This Project will be a lot of communication and administration but will provide leadership opportunities through managing volunteers and certain aspects of each event.
