CommunityGrows- Marketing and Communications Coordinator
CommunityGrows cultivates healthy youth through growing gardens in low-income, diverse communities. We provide year-round environmental, food and nutrition education, youth development, and job readiness training for low-income children and youth of color. We leverage environmental education in an innovative, holistic way to help young people grow up safe, healthy, and prepared to meet their full potential. Our three interconnected programs work with over 1,300 low-income 5-19 year olds each year in the high-needs San Francisco neighborhoods of the Western Addition, Bayview-Hunters Point, and the Outer Mission/Excelsior. The programs: Seed to Mouth garden Education Program; and BEETS (Band of Environmentally Educated and Employable Teens) are unique in that the same children and youth have multiple touch-points with us throughout their school years. About 50% of our youth attend more than one of our programs. We aim to engage young people to grow with us as they learn with us in the garden starting when they are in kindergarten; don an apron and learn proper knife skills with us in the kitchen as they near middle school; and take on leadership roles in our youth internship program as teenagers. Our BEETS program participants come full circle as they teach classes to the younger students, modeling positive behaviors for others, and developing leadership skills, knowledge, and the confidence that they can teach other members of their community about gardening, plant science, the environment, nutrition, healthful cooking, and more. The Marketing and Communications Coordinator will play a vital role on our team by overseeing and expanding our growing social media presence; managing and re-imagining our branding, including writing and planning blogs, overseeing the website, and managing our images and collateral. This is a wonderful opportunity for an organized, outgoing, person who wants to make their mark on an organization and a real impact on the community.
