Advertising and Marketing Specialist
 
 
 
Our service area is located on the Western Slope of Colorado, about a three-hour drive west, into the mountains from Denver (180 miles) and about a 1.5-hour drive east (88 miles) from Grand Junction. Our area boasts scenic rivers and other four-season tourist attractions, especially our many festivals, mountain trails, fabulous ski resorts, and relaxing hot springs. Our local communities experience significant levels of poverty due to a large number of low-paying, tourist- and ranching-related service jobs in our rural, low-population geographic area. The population is centered around towns ranging from trendy Aspen in the southeast to remote Parachute out west. We also work with a high number of Hispanic residents, so bilingual skills are a plus. The UWBB VISTA Project will offer $500/month housing stipends (paid directly to VISTA members’ landlords). This position is a part of the United Way Battlement to the Bells (UWBB) VISTA team which includes members at various other sites. The VISTA member placed with Literacy Outreach will collaborate with staff and board members to develop and implement a general marketing strategy with the purpose of student and volunteer recruitment. They will also use design platforms to create marketing materials for various events.
