Special Events Coordinator
 
 
 
The Special Events Coordinator VISTA will work primarily to build Storytime Village’s capacity through coordination of special events that benefit underserved Kansas children from birth to age 8. Since its beginning in 2009, Storytime Village has worked to help the youngest in our communities thrive through partnerships that provide early childhood development, family engagement around reading and access to books. Storytime Village, Inc. is a Kansas based children’s literacy nonprofit organization. With the support of parents and the community, we inspire underserved children to read by providing them with free books and literacy resources. The Special Events Coordinator will work closely with the Fundraising and Development Coordinator and Marketing and Communications Coordinator to build capacity for the organization through planning and execution of special events. Events will build community relationships and support annual fundraising efforts, while generating operational, unrestricted revenue. The event development and execution will aim to improve the low literacy rates of economically disadvantaged children in Wichita, Kansas.
