E3.18 Zeitgeist Creative & Healthy Community Building VISTA
The Zeitgeist Center for Arts & Community is an arts and community development organization working to build a healthy, connected community empowered to create and thrive. We bring the arts and culture to all of our programs and projects, as well as a commitment to the natural environment and to building equity in our community. Much of our current work is dedicated to advancing access to fresh and healthy food, expanding equitable multi-modal transportation, and creating cultural and artistic opportunities through the facilitation of the Zeitgeist Arts Building - a community building designed to produce and present performance art and independent film. We are seeking a candidate who is passionate about creative community development. This person should be flexible in the type of work they will be participating in. The work will include building capacity with our Executive Director, as well as work to enhance our ability to tell the full Zeitgeist story through communications and programming in partnership with the Communications & Creative Director. The member will lead evaluation of current community volunteer efforts and build systems to make our work more powerful. Successful candidates will be comfortable in an office environment collaboratively working in a shared space. They will have basic computer skills and some experience writing reports or papers. They will be willing to work with volunteers, make recruitment calls, and interact with community members in a direct way. They will be self-motivated and able to work independently. The expected work hours are generally Mon-Fri during the day, but there is flexibility to accommodate needs and there will be some nights and weekends. Ultimately, this experience will offer an opportunity to see multiple perspectives within a non-profit that does diverse and multifaceted work. This position will explore program development, communications capacity, volunteer recruitment, and organizational & program evaluation.
