Business Development 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 focus on sourcing the used books that fuel our bookselling business. We need to grow the number of books that we source from 2.7M in FY17 to over 5M by FY20 to sustain our larger enterprise, and this will require significant work in developing new partnerships and engaging recurring book donors. The Business Development Outreach and & Stewardship Coordinator will focus on engaging the community through bookdrives, outreach to new partners to place book bins or set up recurring pickups at regional libraries, marketing book donations, and donor recognition and celebration of book donors intended to forge long-term relationships. The member will have the opportunity to learn while serving, develop new systems, gain highly useful youth training and business skills, and see our young people grow first hand, all in a dynamic, fast-based, team-oriented, and supportive environment. A $100 monthly housing reimbursement and a $75 monthly transportation reimbursement are available to members serving at MTW.
