Northern IL Food Bank - Communications Ambassador
 
 
 
The Communications VISTA at Northern Illinois Food Bank will start by assessing network partners on their current materials and their needs for improved materials. If desired network members will be able to get one-on-one help with improving their materials. He/she will also design and develop marketing material templates for fund raising and recruiting volunteers that will be available to all network members and will be easy to customize. He/she will research and recommend the most effective communication stream, through which the food bank can inform network partners of new hunger statistics or information that they may find useful in their talks with donors or the media. The Communications VISTA will also assist us with assessing our recording of media coverage both for the Food Bank and for our network partners. Increased media helps both our clients with knowledge of where they can get assistance and potential supporters, while also building awareness and education about the need for food assistance and programs to help those in poverty. He/she will also review and recommend the best method for internal communications between employees, and will assist in producing employee communications. We are seeking applicants with a passion for helping the hungry, strong communication skills, the ability to work independently and a respect for volunteer commitment and dedication to their community. Transportation and a willingness to travel throughout the assigned area is required. VISTAs will gain experience in communications, marketing and working with a respected Food Bank and a range of non-profit organizations.
