Development & Marketing Coordinator More Than Words
More Than Words (MTW) supports youth who are in the foster care system, court involved, homeless, or out of school to take charge of their lives by taking charge of a business. Youth work two paid jobs at MTW: in our $2M bookselling business learning critical skills and a “YOU Job” where they advance personal goals in education, work, and life. MTW is in the midst of a game-changing expansion in the South End of Boston, growing to take over the first floor of our building with a new bookstore, marketplace, and community event space, and serve 60% more youth. In this project, the AmeriCorps VISTA member will help MTW prepare for this expansion by growing our marketing and outreach efforts and collaborating with staff to grow fundraising by 10% to support a larger program. Working with the Development & Events Manager and Development Team out of our Waltham site with occasional time spent in Boston, the Development & Marketing Coordinator will research and build new partnerships and relationships, and grow and improve our marketing efforts to share the story of MTW, support youth to engage with volunteers, and find new supporters and community members. The member will have the opportunity to learn while serving, develop new systems, gain highly useful fundraising skills, and see our young people grow first hand, all in a dynamic, fast-based, team-oriented, and supportive environment. The member should be prepared to serve a Tuesday-Saturday schedule to engage with community members and volunteers on weekends. A $100 monthly housing reimbursement and a $75 monthly transportation reimbursement are available to members serving at MTW.
